Abstract:

Papers of Walter H. Munk (1917-2018), distinguished physical oceanographer and professor of geophysics at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego. The collection documents Munk's scientific career and some of the subject areas where he was an influential theorist, including wave forecasting and acoustic tomography. It includes: correspondence; an incomplete assortment of Munk's writings and lectures; collaborative research with Harald Sverdrup and the U.S. Navy on wave forecasting during World War II, including drafts of reports and photographic prints of waves and coastlines; Munk's files from government consulting (JASON and the National Research Council); and Munk's papers on UC San Diego, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics (IGPP).
