Dynamics of the ocean

Most popular at the top

  • Marine Scienceby Scott and Bobbi McCutcheon

    Infobase Publishing 2005; US$ 29.95

    Nearly three-quarters of Earth?s surface is covered by water, and more than 90 percent of the Earth?s living space is in the ocean. The oceans influence climate and weather patterns, affecting people?s daily lives in many ways. Marine science includes all of the sciences as they relate to the sea, including marine biography and oceanography. From the... more...

  • Tsunamisby Kenji Satake

    Springer 2006; US$ 239.00

    A timely review of state-of-the-art tsunami research, covering case studies and recent developments from various approaches. Provides a practical guide to improving operational tsunami warning systems and mitigating coastal hazard from tsunamis. more...

  • The Agulhas Currentby J.R.E. Lutjeharms

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 269.00

    The Agulhas Current is one of the major currents of the world ocean. In the network of currents that connect the major ocean basins, it forms a key link. This linkage may be of critical importance in the way the ocean affects the earth's climate and climate change. Based on the research findings of 60 years, the author describes the origins of... 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...

  • Tsunamisby Timothy M. Kusky

    Infobase Publishing 2008; US$ 47.40

    Discusses the many aspects of the generation, movement, and effects of tsunamis. This book includes analysis of the triggering mechanisms for tsunamis, the physics and historical effects, the various warning systems, and individual cases of tsunamis around the world. It features black-and-white photographs and illustrations. 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...

  • A Large Spectrum of Free Oscillations of the World Oceanby Peters Ehlers; Hartmut Gra▀l

    Springer 2008; US$ 129.00

    The ocean tides are the most prominent forced oscillations in the global ocean. Research showed that tides play an important role for the earth's climate system and they are of considerable interest for the post-processing of satellite data. To understand these oscillations it is substantial to determine and analyse the free oscillations. more...

  • Tsunami Science Four Years after the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunamiby Phil R. Cummins; Laura S. L. Kong; Kenji Satake

    Springer 2009; US$ 89.99

    The tragedy of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami has led to a rapid expansion in science directed at understanding tsunami and mitigating their hazard. This title includes 28 papers that cover the advances in tsunami modelling and hazard assessment, as well as focus on observations and data analysis. more...

  • The Global Thermohaline Paleocirculationby Elena V. Ivanova

    Springer 2009; US$ 209.00

    Describes what is known about the global thermohaline circulation, interaction with climate, long and short-term variability through the last glacial-interglacial cycle. This work presents results of the author's 10 years high-resolution paleoceanographic research in low and high latitudes. more...
