  • TIDAL BORES, AEGIR, EAGRE, MASCARET, POROROCAby Hubert Chanson

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 134.00

    A tidal bore is a series of waves propagating upstream as the tidal flow turns to rising. It forms during spring tide conditions when the tidal range exceeds 4 to 6 m and the flood tide is confined to a narrow funnelled estuary. Its existence is based upon a fragile hydrodynamic balance between the tidal amplitude, the freshwater river flow conditions... more...

  • New Perspectives on Deep-water Sandstonesby G. Shanmugam

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 170.00

    This handbook is vital for understanding the origin of deep-water sandstones, emphasizing sandy-mass transport deposits (SMTDs) and bottom-current reworked sands (BCRSs) in petroleum reservoirs. This cutting-edge perspective, a pragmatic alternative to the conventional turbidite concepts, is crucial because the turbidite paradigm is built on a dubious... more...

  • El Niño and the Southern Oscillationby Henry F. Diaz; Vera Markgraf

    Cambridge University Press 2000; US$ 192.00

    Leading experts summarize information about the El Niño/Southern Oscillation for scientists and graduate students. more...

  • Oceanography from Spaceby Vittorio Barale; J.F.R. Gower; L. Alberotanza

    Springer 2010; US$ 179.00

    This Volume collects a series of key-note lectures delivered at the fourth "Oceans from Space" Symposium, held in Venice, Italy, in 2010. The revisited postscript in the title identifies it as the ideal follow-up of the legendary Oceanography from Space, edited by J.F.R. Gower and published in 1980, following the very first edition of "Oceans... 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...

  • Arctic Science, International Law and Climate Changeby Susanne Wasum-Rainer; Ingo Winkelmann; Katrin Tiroch

    Springer 2012; US$ 119.00

    Developments in the Arctic region are increasingly part of international discussion. The book contains a comprehensive and interdisciplinary analysis of the current problems around marine scientific research in the Arctic region. It combines scientific, legal and policy aspects. The main questions addressed are: ongoing and future Arctic marine research,... more...

  • 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...

  • Marine Geochemistryby Roy Chester; Tim D. Jickells

    Wiley 2012; US$ 154.95

    Marine Geochemistry offers a fully comprehensive and integrated treatment of the chemistry of the oceans, their sediments and biota. The first edition of the book received strong critical acclaim and was described as ‘ a standard text for years to come .’ This third edition of Marine Geochemistry has been written at a time when the... more...

  • The Dance of Air and Seaby Arnold H. Taylor

    Oxford University Press 2011; US$ 19.99

    How can the tiny plankton in the sea just off Western Europe be affected by changes 6000 km away on the other side of the North Atlantic Ocean? How can a slight rise in the temperature of the surface of the Pacific Ocean have a devastating impact on amphibian life in Costa Rica?Living populations across the globe are connected by great swayings of... more...
