Jerry Bona (UIC): Mathematics in the Service of Oceanography

Mathematics has a long and distinguished history of being
useful in understanding problems arising in oceanography.
There are many areas of oceanography upon which mathematical
analysis of one sort or another has been able to cast light.

There are far too many to survey them all in an hour, so I
have chosen two topics to discuss in a little detail. One of
these is the propagation of internal waves and the other
is the formation of rogue waves - a.k.a. freak waves or
giant waves.
