  • The Oceanic Thermohaline Circulationby Hendrik M. van Aken

    Springer 2007; US$ 219.00

    Presents a global hydrographic description of the thermohaline circulation. This book also provides an introduction to the theoretical aspects of this phenomenon, and observational evidence for the theory. The hydrographic description and the observational evidence are based on data sources, mainly from the World Oceanographic Experiment (WOCE). more...

  • Breaking Ocean Wavesby Eugene A. Sharkov

    Springer 2007; US$ 219.00

    Represents a comprehensive description of the physical findings of an investigation into the spatio-temporal characteristics of the gravity of breaking waves and the foam activity in open sea by methods and instruments of optical and microwave remote sensing. more...

  • Tsunamiby Edward Bryant

    Springer 2008; US$ 269.00

    In the last three years, there have been three large tsunamis in the Indian Ocean, most notably the notorious one which struck on 26 December 2004 and killed more than 238,000 people. It was generated by one of the largest recorded earthquakes in the last 100 years. Such events occur about four times per century, mainly in the Pacific Ocean. Few scientists... more...

  • Atmospheric and Oceanic Mesoscale Processesby Maithili Sharan; Sethu Raman

    Springer 2008; US$ 109.00

    Understanding, modeling and prediction of mesoscale processes in the atmosphere, ocean and environmental systems, have gained importance in the last decade or so. This is because of the availability of more sophisticated observational systems, provided by technological innovations and more realistic simulations using advanced dynamical models. This... more...

  • Extreme Ocean Wavesby Efim N. Pelinovsky; C. Kharif

    Springer 2008; US$ 159.00

    Extreme, freak or rogue waves are produced by a number of physical mechanisms that focus the water-wave energy into a small area, due to wave instability, chaotic behaviour, dispersion (frequency modulation), refraction (presence of variable currents or bottom topography), soliton interactions, etc. During the past thirty years a number of physical... more...

  • Ocean Ridges and Trenchesby Peter Aleshire

    Infobase Publishing 2007; US$ 35.00

    Reveals how 10 undersea mountain ranges and valleys came to be, how and why it has changed over the span of geologic time, and its contributions to the environment. more...
