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

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Numerical Modellingby J. Noye

    Elsevier Science 1987; US$ 72.95

    The thirteen papers presented in this book are based on talks given at the workshop on Numerical Modelling of Marine Systems held at the University of Adelaide, South Australia in February 1986. Several of the articles are a direct outcome of two special sessions held on modelling of Open Boundary Conditions and on the Transport of Pollutants. Other... more...

  • Numerical Modelling of Marine Hydrodynamicsby H.-G. Ramming; Z. Kowalik

    Elsevier Science 1980; US$ 72.95

  • Ocean Hydrodynamics of the Japan and East China Seasby T. Ichiye

    Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 310.00

    The Japan and East China seas are both marginal seas, but have different oceanographical features: the former is a deep basin filled with polar water but a jet-like current in the upper layer, and the latter is a wide continental shelf with two large rivers. This book provides the first synthesis of information on the circulation, hydrography, coastal... 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...

  • Small-Scale Turbulence and Mixing in the Oceanby J.C.J. Nihoul; B.M. Jamart

    Elsevier Science 1988; US$ 72.95

    This volume contains the proceedings of the 19th International Liège Colloquium on Ocean Hydrodynamics, the programme of which focused on the relationships between small-scale mixing and large-scale features, transports and processes. The presentation of papers on various methods of parameterization of small-scale turbulent mixing for numerical ocean... more...

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

    Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 310.00
