Please come to an open reception for alumni and friends of the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics (GFD) Program. This program is an interdisciplinary summer program for graduate students that has been held since 1959 at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. It has promoted the exchange of ideas relating to fluid mechanics among many fields, such as oceanography, meteorology, astrophysics, geology, planetary atmospheres, and applied mathematics. Over its 55-year history the GFD program has produced numerous alumni and touched many junior and senior scientists. The purpose of the reception is to bring them together along with any other interested parties. Information on how to participate in the program will be provided to those that attend the meeting.
