  • Quasi-Geostrophic Theory of Oceans and Atmosphereby Fabio Cavallini; Fulvio Crisciani

    Springer 2012; US$ 129.00

    Large-scale winds and currents tend to balance Coriolis and pressure gradient forces. The time evolution of these winds and currents is the subject of the quasi-geostrophic theory. Chapter 1 presents concepts and equations of classical inertial fluid mechanics. Chapter 2 deals with the equations of thermodynamics that close the governing equations... more...

  • Advanced Ocean Modellingby Jochen Kämpf

    Springer 2010; US$ 159.00

    This book introduces the reader to advanced methods used in the computer-based modelling of fluid processes. This includes nonhydrostatic processes such as breaking internal waves and density-driven convection, but the model code is also used to simulate an El-Nino event! The book contains 25 practical exercises, using freely available Open-Source... more...

  • Carbon and Nutrient Fluxes in Continental Marginsby Kon-Kee Liu; Larry Atkinson; Renato Quiñones

    Springer 2010; US$ 279.00

    The book provides best estimates of carbon and nutrient fluxes in seven types of continental margins. In each type, these fluxes are reported in detail individually for 3-7 representative geographic regions, each of which is characterized by concise descriptions of the physical and biogeochemical settings. Drawn from the regional synthesis, a global... more...
