Notes on the 1967 Summer Study Program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
MetadataShow full item record
In former years some of the research and seminars of the WHOI Geophysical Fluid Dynamics program was concerned with determining the interior structure and motions of stars and galaxies. This year we have focused our attention downward rather than upward and have attempted to learn some things about the earth's interior. Freeman Gilbert's lectures on the inverse problem in seismology discuss one aspect of the geophysicist's attempts to infer some things about the earth's interior from the evidence which is available at the surface. Paul Robert presented a survey of the difference attempts to attribute the earth's magnetic field to dynamo action. Willem Malkus, Raymond Hide and Stephen Childress supplemented Roberts' lectures with seminars. As students of our physical environment all of us were entertained and stimulated by this introduction to the netherworld.

Physiological studies of phototrophy and heterotrophy in two algae with contrasting nutritional characteristics, Pyrenomonas salina (Cryptophyceae) and Poterioochromonas malhamensis (Chrysophyceae) Lewitus, Alan J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-08)The ability of algae to take up dissolved organic compounds is well documented for cultured and field populations yet the physiological mechanisms controlling this behavior are largely unknown. The effects of dissolved ...
