2015 program of study : stochastic processes in atmospheric & oceanic dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2016-11)
Stochastic Processes in Atmospheric & Oceanic Dynamics was the theme at the 2015 GFD Program. Professors Charlie Doering (University of Michigan) and Henk Dijkstra (University of Utrecht) were the principal lecturers. ...
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)
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 ...
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 ...
Summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics : stellar fluid dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-10)
The 1990 program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics had as its special topic "Stellar Fluid Dynamics". Introductory lectures by Edward Spiegel and Jean-Paul Zahn paved the way for more specialized seminars on solar oscillations, ...
2004 program of study : tides
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2005-07)
The summer of 2004 saw the GFD program tackle “Tides”. Myrl Hendershott (Scripps Institution of Oceanography) gave a fabulous introduction to the subject in the first week of the course, laying the foundations from ...
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 : 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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
