Dynamics of the ocean

Most popular at the top

  • A Large Spectrum of Free Oscillations of the World Oceanby Peters Ehlers; Hartmut Graßl

    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...

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

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 140.00

    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 Niņo and the Southern Oscillationby Henry F. Diaz; Vera Markgraf

    Cambridge University Press 2000; US$ 192.00

    Leading experts summarize information about the El Niņo/Southern Oscillation for scientists and graduate students. 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 Physicsby R Craig

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 31.95

    Marine Physics guides different disciplines regarding the study of the sea and provides basic understanding of the fundamental theories and premises of the other disciplines. This book is comprised of eight chapters, beginning with some concepts regarding movement of the sea, such as the density currents, diffusion processes, and wind currents in deep... more...

  • Globalization and the World Oceanby Peter Jacques

    AltaMira Press 2006; US$ 28.99

    Jacques offers a unique analysis of the connections between global marine and atmospheric conditions to global political phenomena. He shows how human survival is intricately linked to the sustainability of the world ocean, a singular connected body of regional oceans. Jacques suggests how we can synthesize and coordinate global ecological information... more...

  • Measuring Ocean Currentsby Antony Joseph

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 149.95

    Measuring Ocean Currents: Tools, Technologies, and Data covers all major aspects of ocean current measurements in view of the implications of ocean currents on changing climate, increasing pollution levels, and offshore engineering activities. Although more than 70% of the Earth is covered by ocean, there is limited information on the countless... more...
