The workshop “Geophysical Fluid Dynamics” addressed recent advances in analytical, stochastic, modeling and computational studies of geophysical fluid models. Of central interest were the reduced geophysical models, that are derived by means of asymptotic and scaling techniques, and their investigations by methods from the above disciplines. In particular, contributions concerning the viscous and inviscid geostrophic models, the primitive equations of oceanic and atmospheric dynamics, tropical atmospheric models and their coupling to nonlinear dynamics of phase changes moisture, thermodynamical effects, stratifying effects, as well as boundary layers were presented and discussed.
