  • Stern, Melvin E. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1962-11)
  • Veronis, George (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, ...
  • Stern, Melvin E.; Mellor, Florence K. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1979-11)
    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 ...
  • Veronis, George; Mellor, Florence K. (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 ...
  • Malkus, Willem V. R.; Mellor, Florence K. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1981-11)
    Reexploring convection and its various transitions to chaotic behavior were the central themes of GFD 1981. Our principal lecturer, Dr. Edward A. Spiegel, provided both a rich historical picture and stimulating hours at ...
  • Veronis, George; Mellor, Florence K. (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.
  • Steering Committee; Ewing-DeRemer, Barbara (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 ...
  • Young, Bill; Fauve, Stephan; DeRemer, Barbara Ewing; Meacham, Stephen P. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-09)
    The GFD program in 1991 focused on pattern forming processes in physics and geophysics. The pricipallecturer, Stephan Fauve, discussed a variety of systems, including our old favorite, Rayleigh-Bénard convection, but ...
  • Balmforth, Neil J.; Llewellyn-Smith, Stefan; Hendershott, Myrl; Garrett, Christopher (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2005-07)
    The summer of 2004 saw the GFD program tackle “Tides”. Myrl Hendershott (Scripps Institution of Oceanography) gave a fabulous introduction to the subject in the first week of the course, laying the foundations from ...
  • Buhler, Oliver; Doering, Charles; Keller, Joseph; Papanicolaou, George C.; Eijnden, Eric Vanden (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 ...
  • Balmforth, Neil J.; Wettlaufer, John (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-03)
    Study Program. Professor Grae Worster (University of Cambridge) was the principal lecturer, and navigated our path through the fluid dynamics of icy processes in GFD. Towards the end of Grae’s lectures, we also held the ...
  • Cenedese, Claudia; Whitehead, John A.; Pedlosky, Joseph; Lentz, Steven J. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2008-06)
    The topic of the Principal Lectures for the forty-ninth year of the program was “Boundary Layers”. The subject centers around those problems in which the boundary conditions lead to a large gradient near the boundary. ...
  • Balmforth, Neil J.; Veronis, George (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 ...
  • Buhler, Oliver; Helfrich, Karl R. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2010-01)
    The fiftieth year of the program was dedicated to Nonlinear Waves, a topic with many applications in geophysical fluid dynamics. The principal lectures were given jointly by Roger Grimshaw and Harvey Segur and between ...
  • Balmforth, Neil J.; Thiffeault, Jean-Luc (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2011-06)
    Swirling and Swimming in Turbulence was the theme at the 2010 GFD Program. Professors Glenn Flierl (M.I.T.), Antonello Provenzale (ISAC-CNR, Turin) and Jean-Luc Thiffeault (University of Wisconsin) were the principal ...
  • Lebovitz, Norman; Morrison, Philip (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2011-08)
    The theme for the Program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics for the summer of 2011 was Shear Turbulence: onset and structure. Ten days of principal lectures by FabianWale e and Rich Kerswell began the summer, and a large ...
  • Caulfield, Colm-cille; Doering, Charles (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2013-11)
    The 2012 GFD Program theme was Coherent structures with Professors Jeffrey Weiss of the University of Colorado at Boulder and Edgar Knobloch of the University of California at Berkeley serving as principal lecturers. ...
