1980 summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics : coherent features in geophysical flows
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1980-11)
Four principal lecturers shored the task of presenting the subject "Coherent Features in Geophysical Flows" to the participants of the twenty-second geophysical fluid dynamics summer program. Glenn Flierl introduced ...
Geophysical fluid dynamics : notes on the 1960 Summer Study Program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1960)
2006 program of studies : ice
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-03)
Study Program. Professor Grae Worster (University of Cambridge) was the principal lecturer, and navigated our path through the fluid dynamics of icy processes in GFD. Towards the end of Grae’s lectures, we also held the ...
Geometrical methods in fluid dynamics : 1993 Summer study program in fluid dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993)
"Geometrcal methods in fluid dynamics" were the subject of the 1993 GFD session. Paricipants explored the applications of Hamiltonian fluid mechanics and related ideas about symmetry and conservation laws to problems in ...
Conceptual models of the climate : 2002 program of study, Bounds on turbulent transport
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2003-07)
The subject of "Bounds of Turbulent Transport" was introduced in a series of ten lectures. The six lecturers constitute almost all the contributors to this subject. The subject was introduced and foundations laid by five ...
Conceptual models of the climate : 2003 program of study, Non-Newtonian geophysical fluid dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2004-02)
Non-Newtonian fluids occur commonly in our world. These fluids, such as toothpaste, saliva, oils, mud and lava, exhibit a number of behaviors that are different from Newtonian fluids and have a number of additional ...
1982 summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics : particle motions in fluids
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1982-11)
The (Lagrangian) motion of a fluid particle was contrasted with the (Eulerian) flow past a fixed point in space during this twenty-fourth summer program in geophysical fluid dynamics at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
2008 program of studies : perspectives and challenges in GFD
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2009-03)
The GFD Program in 2008 ran with a special theme, in view of the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the program. The first two weeks of Principal Lectures dealt with "Perspectives and Challenges" of the subject, and ...
Stirring and mixing : 1999 Program of Summer Study in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-07)
The central theme of the 1999 GFD Program was the stirring, transport, reaction and mixing of passive and active tracers in turbulent, stratified, rotating fluids. The problem of mixing in fluids has applications in areas ...
Astrophysical and geophysical flows as dynamical systems : 1998 summer study program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-01)
The theme of the 1998 Geophyscial Fluid Dynamics (GFD) summer program at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution was Astrophysical and Geophysical Flows as Dynamical Systems. Antonello Provenzale of the Institute of ...
