Objectives To bring together those working on the problem of annular modes with those working on related features and dynamics within other geophysical fluids To promote the development of predictive theories of annular modes and the behaviors of jets in Earth's atmosphere, in the oceans, and in planetary atmospheres Topics (A) Jets in the Atmosphere (B) Jets in the Oceans (C) Atmospheric Annular Modes (D) Jets and Annular Flows in Planetary Atmospheres (E) Jets in Idealized Flows (GFD) This Chapman conference
