Professor Wetlauffer is an expert on the application of thermodynamics to
understanding Geology, especially that of ice. 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.
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.
