Abstract:

The workshop on Dynamical Systems and Oceanography was held in Little Compton, RI on May 20-21, 1993. The participants were from both the dynamical systems and oceanography communities and were brought together with the goal of brainstorming on the future directions that the application of dynamical systems techniques to oceanography might take. The result of the conference was a white paper that is appended to this report. The workshop was organized into two separate days. On the first day, discussions revolved around the use of geometric techniques from dynamical systems in studying the mixing properties of the ocean. Main lectures were given by Wiggins dynamical systems and Samelson oceanography. Fruitful discussions were held involving all participants on this topic. Short lectures were also given by Kirwan, Brown, and Richardson. On the second day, focus was put on the use of dynamical systems in understanding instabilities. A lecture was given by Prattoceanography on the current problems of interest and also one by Jones dynamical systems on the available modern techniques
