The 1962 Summer Program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 196211) 
The 1963 summer program of theoretical studies in geophysical fluid dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 196311)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, ... 
1979 summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics : the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution : notes on polar oceanography
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 197911)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 ... 
1980 summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics : coherent features in geophysical flows
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 198011)Four principal lecturers shored the task of presenting the subject "Coherent Features in Geophysical Flows" to the participants of the twentysecond geophysical fluid dynamics summer program. Glenn Flierl introduced ... 
1981 summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics : physics of convection
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 198111)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 ... 
1982 summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics : particle motions in fluids
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 198211)The (Lagrangian) motion of a fluid particle was contrasted with the (Eulerian) flow past a fixed point in space during this twentyfourth summer program in geophysical fluid dynamics at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. 
1989 summer study program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics : general circulation of the oceans
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 198911)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 ... 
1991 Summer Study Program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics : patterns in fluid flow
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 199109)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, RayleighBénard convection, but ... 
A 2 1/2 dimensional thermohaline circulation model with boundary mixing
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 200004)A simple quasitwo dimensional dynamical model of Thermohaline circulation (THC) is developed, assuming that the mixing only occurs near western and eastern boundary layers. When the surface density is prescribed, the ... 
2004 program of study : tides
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 200507)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 ... 
2005 program of studies : fast times and fine scales
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 200607)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 ... 
2006 program of studies : ice
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 200703)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 ... 
2007 program of studies : boundary layers
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 200806)The topic of the Principal Lectures for the fortyninth 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. ... 
2008 program of studies : perspectives and challenges in GFD
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 200903)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 ... 
2009 program of studies : nonlinear waves
