Abstract : This volume contains the manuscripts of research lectures by the nine fellows of the summer program. Some reports are obviously related to the main theme; some are related to crucial physical processes in the Polar Oceans; some are pure fluid dynamics or related to particular educational goals of the fellows. These lecture reports have not been edited or reviewed in a manner appropriate for published papers, but we hope that several of them have the beginnings of an idea which will eventually find its way into the literature. Therefore, readers who wish to reproduce any parts of these 'Unpublished Manuscripts' should seek permission directly from the authors. Seven of the fellows were supported by ONR, NASA and NOAA. One of the fellows was supported by The West German Government through the Max Plank Institute for Meteorology, and one of the fellows was supported by the Canadian Government through the Institute of Ocean Sciences.
