Dynamics of the ocean

Most popular at the top

  • Waves in Geophysical Fluidsby John Grue; Karsten Trulsen

    Springer 2007; US$ 179.00

    Waves in Geophysical Fluids describes: the forecasting and risk evaluation of tsunamis by tectonic motion, land slides, explosions, run-up, and maps the tsunami sources in the world's oceans; stochastic Monte-Carlo simulations and focusing mechanisms for rogue waves, nonlinear wave models, breather formulas, and the kinematics of the Draupner wave;... more...

  • Three Great Tsunamisby Harsh K. Gupta; Vineet K. Gahalaut

    Springer 2013; US$ 49.95

    Tsunamis are primarily caused by earthquakes. Under favourable geological conditions, when a large earthquake occurs below the sea bed and the resultant rupture causes a vertical displacement of the ocean bed, the entire column of water above it is displaced, causing a tsunami. In the ocean, tsunamis do not reach great heights but can travel at velocities... more...

  • Schäm dich, Europa!by Wolfgang Maria Siegmund

    Verlagsgruppe Styria 2013; US$ 4.28

    Dieses Buch ist ein wütender Protest gegen die denkfaule Duldung von Tod und Untergang. Ein Protest gegen die Art und Weise, wie sich die Europäer gegen die anderen abschirmen. Also eigentlich sind es ja die Mitteleuropäer, denn die Rumänen und die Kroaten und die Albanier und die Slowaken und all die anderen mit den unaussprechlichen Namen,... more...

  • Tsunamiby Richard Hamblyn

    Reaktion Books 2014; US$ 24.95

    When the earthquake that struck the Solomon Islands in 2013 produced tsunami waves that damaged the country?s infrastructure, it was one in a recent string of reminders of the devastating effects these ferocious waves can have. From the 2011 tsunami in Japan to the giant waves that killed people near the Indian Ocean in 2004, these destructive events... more...

  • The Turbulent Oceanby S. A. Thorpe

    Cambridge University Press 2005; US$ 100.00

    An overview of the current state of knowledge on ocean turbulence for graduate students and researchers. more...

  • Numerical Modeling of Ocean Circulationby Robert N. Miller

    Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 84.00

    This 2007 book describes ocean models for graduate students and researchers in oceanography, geophysics, climatology and atmospheric science. more...

  • Interhemispheric Water Exchange in the Atlantic Oceanby G.J. Goni; P. M. Rizzoli

    Elsevier Science 2003; US$ 270.00

    Recent results from modeling and observational studies demonstrate that the tropical Atlantic is a critical region for processes that maintain the meridional overturning circulation, such as cross-equatorial exchanges, and for sea surface temperature variability that impacts on climate variability of the coupled tropical ocean/atmosphere system. ... more...

  • Ocean Circulationby Open University

    Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 54.95

    This second edition retains the general structure of the first edition, but has been updated in the light of recent oceanographic research, and improved as a teaching text on the basis of feedback from past students and other readers. Notable additions include new sections addressing the topic of numerical modelling, and more discussion of natural... more...

  • An Introduction to Ocean Turbulenceby S. A. Thorpe

    Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 68.00

    An introductory undergraduate textbook on ocean turbulence for courses in physical oceanography. more...

  • Nonlinear Physical Oceanographyby Henk A. Dijkstra

    Springer 2007; US$ 125.00

    Applies the methodology of dynamical systems theory to investigate the physics of the global ocean circulation, such as the dynamics of the Gulf Stream separation and the El Nino/Southern Oscillation phenomenon. This work also deals with the numerical methods for applying bifurcation analysis to large dimensional dynamical systems. more...
