Geophysical Turbulence Program Records

The Geophysical Turbulence Program (GTP) is a formal NCAR-wide activity with more than forty members. The broad goal of GTP is to promote research, education and awareness of geophysical turbulence at NCAR and in the scientific community. This collection contains abstracts and presentations from three GTP-sponsored workshops as well as seminar flyers and minutes from annual meetings.
