First Paragraph

The Workshop was conducted at Tulane University in New Orleans on January 5–7, 1988. Approximately 100 invited scientists from Great Britain, France, Germany, Canada, and the United States participated. The concept of the Workshop originated with the Institute for Naval Oceanography (INO), NSTL, MS. The Organizing Committee consisted of: Dr. James Scoggins, Texas A&M University (Chairman), Dr. Kenneth Davidson, Naval Postgraduate School, Dr. Robert Weller, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Dr. Christopher N.K. Mooers, INO, Dr. Jagadish Shukla, University of Maryland, Dr. William Large, National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), Dr. Frank O. Bryan, (NCAR), Dr. Jordan Alpert, National Meteorological Center, Mr. David Legler, Florida State University, and Mr. Robert Willems, INO. Committee members were chosen who could represent the WOCE and U.S. TOGA programs; both later became co-sponsors of the Workshop with INO.
