  • The Organic Carbon Cycle in the Arctic Oceanby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 329.00

    The flux,preservation,and accumulation of organic carbon in marine systems are controlled by various mechanisms including primary p- duction of the surface water,supply of terrigenous organic matter from the surrounding continents, biogeochemical processes in the water column and at the seafloor, and sedimentation rate. For the world?s oceans,phytoplankton... more...

  • Atmospheric and Oceanic Mesoscale Processesby

    Birkhäuser Basel 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...

  • New Developments in Mode-Water Researchby

    Springer Japan 2012; US$ 129.00

    This book consists of the articles from the special issue of ?New developments in mode-water research: Dynamic and climatic effects? in the Journal of Oceanography , Vol. 68 No. 1, 2012, comprising 10 chapters that cover a wide spectrum of topics. Topics range from the formation, circulation, and variability of mode waters to their dynamic effect... more...

  • Waves in Geophysical Fluidsby

    Springer Vienna 2007; US$ 179.00

    This volume - Waves in Geophysical Fluids - contains extended versions of the lec­ tures that were given at a summerschool in Centre International des Sciences Mecaniques (CISM), Udine, Italy, during the week of 11-15 July 2005. The subjects of the school covered: the formation of the very long tsunamis, the much shorter rogue waves taking place on... more...

  • Remote Sensing of Coastal Aquatic Environmentsby

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 149.00

    This book provides extensive insight on remote sensing of coastal waters from aircraft and space-based platforms. The primary focus of the book is optical remote sensing using passive instruments, to measure and analyze the coastal aquatic environment. The authors have gathered information from a variety of sources, to help non-specialists grasp new... more...

  • The Fate of Persistent Organic Pollutants in the North Seaby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 169.00

    Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are harmful to human health and to the environment. Their fate in the marine environment is not yet fully understood. An ocean model (FANTOM) has been developed to investigate the fate of selected POPs in the North Sea. The main focus of the model is on quantifying the distribution of POPs and their aquatic pathways.... more...

  • Transport at the Air-Sea Interfaceby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 269.00

    Predictions of our future climate vary greatly, with detailed forecasts still subject to debate. One key uncertainty is caused by the lack of our present knowledge of transport processes in the air-water interface, which poses the main transfer resistance between the oceans and atmosphere. Modeling and predictions of our global climate can only be... more...

  • Tsunami and its Hazards in the Indian and Pacific Oceansby

    Birkhäuser Basel 2007; US$ 89.95

    This volume features contributions from the first Meeting of the Tsunami Commission after the big 2004 tsunami in the Indian Ocean. It presents consolidated findings based on hydrophone records, seismometer readings, and tide gauges. In addition, the volume provides reports of post-tsunami surveys and numerical simulations for tsunamis such as the... more...

  • High Resolution Morphodynamics and Sedimentary Evolution of Estuariesby

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 269.00

    Estuaries occur along many of the world?s coastlines irrespective of geologic setting, energy regime, and depositional environment. They represent the interface between fluvial, coastal and marine environments and they contain the sedimentary record of geological changes among these systems. However, detailed case studies on the morphodynamics and... more...

  • Oceanography from Spaceby

    Springer Netherlands 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. more...
