The emphasis in this year's GFD program has been somewhat different from the past. We have tried to expose a theoretically oriented audience to the new body of observations pertaining to the Arctic and Antarctic circulation. We have, however, not departed from our traditional goal of encouraging broad based inquiries into the field of Geophysical Fluid Dynamics. We would like to believe that the breadth of interest and enthusiasm exhibited in these reports will stimulate future work in Polar Oceanography and Fluid Dynamics.

Development of a "genome-proxy" microarray for profiling marine microbial communities, and its application to a time series in Monterey Bay, California Rich, Virginia Isabel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2008-09)This thesis describes the development and application of a new tool for profiling marine microbial communities. Chapter 1 places the tool in the context of the range of methods used currently. Chapter 2 describes the ...
Fox-Kemper, Baylor (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2003-06)Inertial terms dominate the single-gyre ocean model and prevent western-intensification when the viscosity is small. This occurs long before the oceanically-appropriate parameter range. It is demonstrated here that the ...
