Dynamics of the ocean

Most popular at the top

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Ocean Waves Breaking and Marine Aerosol Fluxesby Stanislaw R. Massel

    Springer 2007; US$ 259.00

    This book fills a gap in knowledge of breaking waves and their influence on the generation of marine fluxes from ocean surfaces. Based on published data as well as on the author's experience, the text explores in detail the relationship chain of breaking waves, whitecaps coverage, rate of wave energy dissipation, amount of aerosol fluxes rising... more...

  • Oceansby Dana Desonie

    Infobase Publishing 2007; US$ 35.00

    Earth's seas play a tremendous role in the planet's systems: Ocean currents transfer water and heat around the globe. Offering photographs and illustrations, this work shows how protecting the oceans requires protecting the entire planet, and describes the importance of setting aside marine reserves to save vital ecosystems. more...

  • Tsunami and Nonlinear Wavesby Anjan Kundu

    Springer 2007; US$ 199.00

    The need for tsunami research and analysis has grown dramatically following the devastating tsunami of December 2004, which affected Southern Asia. This book pursues a detailed theoretical and mathematical analysis of the fundamentals of tsunamis, especially the evolution and dynamics of tsunamis and other great waves. Of course, it includes specific... 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. It is the first book entirely devoted to the topic of deep water formation in which articles have been both selected... more...

  • Hydrodynamics of Semi-Enclosed Seasby J.C.J. Nihoul

    Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 320.00
