He has genuine overlap with our condensed matter group and held a similar appointment in Seattle before coming to Yale. We hope to foster closer ties with Geology and Geophysics through this appointment, at the level of teaching, training of graduate students and possibly a new joint major. STATEMENT CONCERNING TEACHING: Professor Wettlaufer is regarded as an energetic and articulate lecturer. His breadth of knowledge and range of experience equip him well to motivate students. At Yale, he would teach thermodynamics, physical oceanography, and specialized courses on the role of ice physics in the climate system. SELECTED PUBLICATIONS: Wettflauer, J.S. and J.G.
