Notes on the 1976 Summer Study Program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
MetadataShow full item record
Global climatology was the principal theme of the eighteenth summer program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. This single volume contains course lectures, abstracts of seminars and lectures by summer fellows. As in previous years, the summer fellows were responsible for preparing a first draft of the course lectures on the principal theme. In most cases, the lecturer has been able to re-work the material further. The course lecturers, all of whom contributed so much to the program, are Richard S. Lindzen, Wallace S. Broecker, Abraham H. Oort, John Imbrie, Thomas Vonder Haar, Gerald R. North, Claes Rooth, Gene E. Birchfield, and Richard C. Somerville. The abstracted seminars cover a broad range of topics, including a one week symposium on planetary and benthic boundary layers. Much valuable material is referred to in these abstracts. The major creative products of the summer are the lectures of the ten fellows. These lectures have not been edited or reviewed in the manner appropriate for published papers, and should be regarded as unpublished manuscripts. Readers who would like to quote or use the material should write directly to the authors . As in previous years, much of the ultimate value of this summer's activities is likely to appear as published papers during the next year or two. In this sense, the material in this volume is simply a report of an ongoing research effort. We all express our thanks to the National Science Foundation, which provided the bulk of the financial support, the Office of Naval Research, which supported the Boundary Layer Symposium and some of the staff participation, and to Mary C. Thayer, who managed the program and prepared this volume.
