The 1959 Summer Program of Theoretical Studies in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
Malkus, Willem V. R.
MetadataShow full item record
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 placed on the formulation of tractable research problems in geophysics. The participants are encouraged to work on satisfactory problems thus formulated and to continue with their research after returning to their respective institutions.
