Celebrating Walter Munk at 99

IGPP was thrilled help host festivities for Walter Munk's 99th birthday.  Munk's tenure at Scripps Institution of Oceanography began in 1939—when he applied for a summer job.  He began to develop plans for IGPP in 1956 and was the institute's first director.  A small collection of party photos is available here.  The full suite of photos taken on Walter's birthday, is available here.
