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

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 134.00

    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...

  • The Turbulent Oceanby S. A. Thorpe

    Cambridge University Press 2005; US$ 96.00

    Overview of the current state of knowledge for graduate students and researchers. more...

  • Numerical Modeling of Ocean Circulationby Robert N. Miller

    Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 81.00

    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$ 260.00

    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

  • Tsunamis and Hurricanesby Ferdinand Cap

    Springer 2007; US$ 109.00

    Tsunamis and hurricanes had a devastating impact on the population living near the coast during the year 2005. The calculation of the power and intensity of tsunamis and hurricanes is of great importance. This book presents research on the mathematical description of tsunamis and hurricanes. It has formula, tables and results of the calculations. 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...

  • Tsunami and Its Hazards in the Indian and Pacific Oceansby Kenji Satake; Emile A. Okal; Josť C. Borrero

    Springer 2007; US$ 89.95

    Tsunamis like the Indian Ocean tsunami caused by the Sumatra-Andaman earthquake in 2004 or the Chilean earthquake in the Pacific Ocean in 1960 motivate international collaborations for the development of tsunami warning systems. Since 1960 the Tsunami Commission, established by the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics, has been holding a biannual... more...
