Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Shared Teaching Schedule
The graduate programs at UW in Applied Math, Atmospheric Sciences, and Physical Oceanography share the teaching of two first year courses in fluid dynamics. To help us all remember what happened or is supposed to happen in the future we keep a list on this website.
Beginning with the 2010-2011 Academic Year the plan has the following rotation schedule. The purpose is to ensure that no department teaches both classes in a given academic year.
- Intro to Fluids: AMath - AtmSci - Ocn (a 3-year rotation schedule)
- GFD 1: Ocn - Ocn - AtmSci - AtmSci - Ocn - AtmSci (a 6-year rotation schedule)
Intro to Fluid Dynamics (Fall Term)
GFD 1 (Winter Term)
|2012-2013||Eriksen (Ocn)||Durran (AtmSci)|
|2011-2012||Bretherton (AtmSci)||MacCready (Ocn)||Ocn|
|2010-2011||Bretherton (AMath)||-||Rhines (Ocn)||Ocn|
|2009-2010||MacCready (Ocn)||Ocn||Battisti (AtmSci)||-|
|2008-2009||Durran (AtmSci)||AtmSci||Rhines (Ocn)||Ocn|
|2007-2008||MacCready (Ocn)||AMath||Frierson (AtmSci)||AtmSci|
|2006-2007||Durran (AtmSci)||Ocn||Bretherton (AtmSci)||Ocn|
|2005-2006||Bretherton (AMath)||AtmSci||MacCready (Ocn)||AtmSci|
NOTE: Starting in 2010 TA support basically stopped. This is not good for the class, and is a wasted opportunity for our grad students.
