1982 summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics : particle motions in fluids
(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.
2008 program of studies : perspectives and challenges in GFD
(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 ...
Stirring and mixing : 1999 Program of Summer Study in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-07)
The central theme of the 1999 GFD Program was the stirring, transport, reaction and mixing of passive and active tracers in turbulent, stratified, rotating fluids. The problem of mixing in fluids has applications in areas ...
2005 program of studies : fast times and fine scales
(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 ...
Coastal Ocean Processes : a science prospectus
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-04)
CoOP (Coastal Ocean Processes) is an organization meant to study major interdisciplinary scientific problems in the coastal ocean. Its goal is "to obtain a new level of quantitative understanding of the processes that ...
Gravity base stations in Indonesia and in the southwest Pacific
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-06)
During October, November, and December of 1975, seventy gravity base stations were established on the islands of eastern Indonesia (Timor, Wetar, Leti, Moa, Sermata, Babar, Ambon, Seram, Manawoko, Kasiui, Kao Besar, ...
Cyclic fatigue testing of surface mooring hardware for the Arabian Sea mixed layer dynamics experiment
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1995-12)
The Arabian Sea is strongly forced by monsoon winds. Surface moorings deployed in the Arabian Sea are exposed to high winds and large waves. The waves, generated by strong wind events, impose a dynamic load on all mooring ...
Ocean acoustical ray-tracing : Software Ray
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-10)
A new computer program for accurate calculation of acoustic ray paths through a range-varing ocean sound channel has been written. It is based on creating a model of the speed of sound in the ocean, consistent with input ...
Numbers of calling whales in the North Pacific
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2001-11)
Since November 1995, the U. S. Navy's Sound Surveillance System (SOSUS) and other hydrophone arrays were used to regularly sample the occurance of whale sounds in the four regions bordering the continental margins across ...
Astrophysical and geophysical flows as dynamical systems : 1998 summer study program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-01)
The theme of the 1998 Geophyscial Fluid Dynamics (GFD) summer program at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution was Astrophysical and Geophysical Flows as Dynamical Systems. Antonello Provenzale of the Institute of ...
