Director, GEFD Summer School
16th GEOPHYSICAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL FLUID DYNAMICS SUMMER SCHOOL
Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge, UK
Sunday 10th to Saturday 23th September 2006 (Deadline for applications 30th April 2006)
Further Details and On-line Application: http://www.gefd.damtp.cam.ac.uk
This intensive Summer School aims to introduce participants to fluid dynamics as applied to geophysical and environmental flows. It is intended primarily
for students pursuing research towards a PhD and is also suitable for those in industry and government interested in improving their background in the fluid
mechanical aspects of environmental problems. Students are accepted from a variety of scientific backgrounds, though knowledge equivalent to a first Degree
involving mathematics, physics or mechanics is an advantage.
