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 ...
Summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics : dynamic differentation
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-11)
Those attending G.F.D. 1984 were introduced to the novel topic of Geological Fluid Mechanics by our Principal Lecturer, Herbert Huppert. He presented his studies both as a discipline with recent fascinating successes, and ...
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.
The 1959 Summer Program of Theoretical Studies in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1959-10)
This ten-week work-study-discussion program is centered about a formal course called Geophysical Fluid Dynamics. Eight participants are selected from graduate and postgraduate applicants. In the discussions emphasis is ...
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 ...
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 ...
Summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics : chaos
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1985-11)
The explosive growth of dynamieal systems theory in the past two decades stems in large part from the realization that it is applicable to many natural phenomena. Indeed, much o f the theoretical development has been sparked ...
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, ...
1989 summer study program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics : general circulation of the oceans
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-11)
The success of this summer's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Program owes much to Myrl Hendershott's excellent and engaging survey of the Oceans General Circulation, including recent developments In the Theory of Recirculation ...
The influence of convection on large-scale circulations : 1988 Summer Study Program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-07)
The topic for the 30th Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Summer Program was "The Influence of Convection on Large- Scale Motions." The principal lecturer, Kerry Emanual, presented the essential elements of dry convection, ...
