2005 program of studies : fast times and fine scales
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-07)
The 2005 GFD program was entitled “Fast Times and Fine Scales” with a focus on asymptotic and stochastic modeling methods that exploit a physical scale separation of some kind. An extremely strong application pool resulted ...
Rotating hydraulic control : 1997 summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1998-07)
Rotating Hydraulic Control was the topic of the thirty ninth year of the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics (GFD) program at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. This theme was principally centered about those nonlinear ...
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 ...
Conceptual models of the climate : 2001 program of studies in geophysical fluid dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2003)
In 2001, the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Summer Study Program grappled with Conceptual Models of the Climate. Eli Tziperman (Weizman Institute), Paola Cessi (Scripps Institution of Oceanography) and Ray Pierre- Humbert ...
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.
1981 summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics : physics of convection
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1981-11)
Reexploring convection and its various transitions to chaotic behavior were the central themes of GFD 1981. Our principal lecturer, Dr. Edward A. Spiegel, provided both a rich historical picture and stimulating hours at ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
The 1963 summer program of theoretical studies in geophysical fluid dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1963-11)
The program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics for the summer of 1963 was a program of work, study and discussion and was formally outlined through two courses of lectures - one on the dynamics of rotating fluids, the other, ...
