Biographical / Historical
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.
Language of Materials
The collection is arranged in three series based on the event type associated with each document. Furthermore, the "Workshops" series is divided into three sub-series, one for each workshop.
In Fall 2015, records for the GTP were selected for inclusion in the digital preservation efforts of the NCAR Archives per the Archives collecting scope and policy.
Existence and Location of Originals
All documents were collected from the GTP website, downloaded from webpages linked from the homepage of the program. All files were in PDF upon downloading, so no format conversions were necessary.
