2009 program of studies : nonlinear waves
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2010-01)
The fiftieth year of the program was dedicated to Nonlinear Waves, a topic with many applications in geophysical fluid dynamics. The principal lectures were given jointly by Roger Grimshaw and Harvey Segur and between ...
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 ...
2011 program of study : shear turbulence : onset and structure
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2011-08)
The theme for the Program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics for the summer of 2011 was Shear Turbulence: onset and structure. Ten days of principal lectures by FabianWale e and Rich Kerswell began the summer, and a large ...
Summer study program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics : baroclinic instability and ocean fronts
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1983-11)
"Baroclinic instability as the largest scale of motion participating in the cross frontal oceanic transport process" was the theme of the 25th summer program at G.F.D. Killworth (Cambridge University) reviewed ...
Summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics : order and disorder in turbulent shear flow
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1986-12)
Our thanks go to Martin Landahl for his stimulating expository lectures on recent development in "lab scale" turbulent flow. This subject was covered by him and other staff members from the experimental, analytic, and ...
Rotating convection : 1995 Summer Study Program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-07)
The 1995 program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics addressed "Rotating Convection," with particular emphasis on high-Rayleigh-number convection and on convection in the ocean.
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 ...
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, ...
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 ...
