    This book provides a thorough treatment of both theoretical and observational aspects of the interaction between the sea-floor and the near-sea-floor dynamics; the effect this has on the distribution of internal and seabed stress; and the relevance of the associated dynamics to sedimentation processes. The theoretical work described involved both... more...

  • Deep Convection and Deep Water Formation in the Oceansby Simon Chu; J.C. Gascard

    Elsevier Science 1991; US$ 72.95

    This book contains articles presenting current knowledge about the formation and renewal of deep waters in the ocean. These articles were presented at an international workshop at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey in March 1990.

  • Deep Ocean Circulationby T. Teramoto

    Elsevier Science 1993; US$ 72.95

    This volume comprises the final report of the research project entitled the Dynamics of the Deep Ocean Circulation. The layered structure of the subsurface circulation, which had been predicted in the hypothetical model proposed prior to the research, is verified through Eulerian and Lagrangian measurements of current. By the use of the numerical model,... more...

  • Rogue Waves in the Oceanby Christian Kharif; Efim Pelinovsky; Alexey Slunyaev

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 199.00

    This book describes modern approaches, including theoretical and numerical models, applied to explain the physical origin of anomalous waves on the sea surface. It takes into account wind flow above waves as well as variable bathymetry and currents. more...

  • El Nino, La Nina, and the Southern Oscillationby S. George Philander; James R. Holton; Renata Dmowska

    Elsevier Science 1989; US$ 118.00

    El Nino and the Southern Oscillation is by far the most striking phenomenon caused by the interplay of ocean and atmosphere. It can be explained neither in strictly oceanographic nor strictly meteorological terms. This volume provides a brief history of the subject, summarizes the oceanographic and meteorological observations and theories, and discusses... more...

  • The Waveby Susan Casey

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2010; US$ 15.95

    From Susan Casey, bestselling author of The Devil?s Teeth , an astonishing book about colossal,  ship-swallowing rogue waves and the surfers who seek them out. For centuries, mariners have spun tales of gargantuan waves, 100-feet high or taller. Until recently scientists dis­missed these stories?waves that high would seem to violate the laws of... more...

  • The Global Thermohaline Paleocirculationby Elena Ivanova

    Springer Netherlands 2009; Not Available

    Originally published in Russian, this is the first English translation of this book on paleoceanography and paleoclimatology. The author summarizes her own research over recent years and compiles an overview of up-to-date knowledge on past ocean circulation. more...

  • Ebb and Flowby Tom Koppel

    Dundurn 2007; US$ 26.99
