Dynamics of the ocean

Most popular at the top

  • Lagrangian Analysis and Prediction of Coastal and Ocean Dynamicsby Annalisa Griffa; A. D. Jr. Kirwan; Arthur J. Mariano; Tamay Özgökmen; H. Thomas Rossby

    Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 194.00

    Review of Lagrangian techniques for researchers and graduate students in physical systems and biological modelling. more...

  • The Indian Ocean Tsunamiby Tad S. Murty; U. Aswathanarayana; Niru Nirupama

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 262.00

    The Indian Ocean tsunami of December 2004 is considered to have been one of the worst natural disasters in history, affecting twelve countries, from Indonesia to Somalia. 175,000 people are believed to have lost their lives, almost 50,000 were registered as missing and 1.7 million people were displaced. As well as this horrendous toll on human life,... more...

  • Ocean Circulation and Climateby Gerold Siedler; John Gould; John A. Church

    Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 136.00

    Ocean circulation is a key determinant of climate and climate change; therefore the topic is extremely hot. As a moderator and initiator of climatic variability and change and as an economic resource, the global ocean is vital to life on earth. Quantifying the ocean's role in climate has become a matter of urgency as society attempts to gauge how... more...

  • Wind Generated Ocean Wavesby I.R. Young

    Elsevier Science 1999; US$ 180.00

    The goals of wind wave research are relatively well defined: to be able to predict the wind wave field and its effect on the environment. That environment could be natural (beaches, the atmosphere etc.) or imposed by human endeavour (ports, harbours, coastal settlements etc.). Although the goals are similar, the specific requirements of these various... more...

  • Hurricane Generated Seasby Michel Ochi

    Elsevier Science 2003; US$ 190.00

    Hurricanes are one of the most adverse aspects of the ocean environment, with the potential to cause a disastrous event for marine systems in the ocean. This is an invaluable reference for all involved in the field of naval, ocean and coastal engineering. The work clarifies hurricane generated sea conditions necessary for the design and operation... more...

  • Physical Oceanography of the Frontal Zones in Sub-Arctic Seasby A.G. Kostianoy; J.C.J. Nihoul; V.B. Rodionov

    Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 185.00

    This title presents the systematization and description of accumulated knowledge on oceanic fronts of the Norwegian, Greenland, Barents and Bering Seas. The main fronts of the Norwegian, Greenland and Barents Seas are part of the climatic North Polar Frontal Zone (NPFZ). The work is based on numerous observational data, collected by the authors during... more...

  • An Introduction to the Dynamics of El Nino & the Southern Oscillationby Allan J. Clarke

    Elsevier Science 2008; US$ 137.00

    Many scientists either working on the El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) problem or its many applications have not been trained in both the equatorial ocean and atmospheric dynamics necessary to understand it. This book seeks to overcome this difficulty by providing a step by step introduction to ENSO, helping the upper level graduate student or research... more...

  • Radar Imaging of the Ocean Wavesby Mikhail B. Kanevsky

    Elsevier Science 2008; US$ 126.00

    This book is dedicated to studying the ocean with radar tools, in particular, with space radars. Being intended mainly for the scientists preoccupied with the problem (as well as senior course students), it concentrates and generalizes the knowledge scattered over specialized journals. The significant part of the book contains the results obtained... more...

  • Physical Oceanography of Coastal and Shelf Seasby B. Johns

    Elsevier Science 1983; US$ 72.95

    This book provides a thorough treatment of both theoretical and observational aspects of the interaction between the sea-floor and the near-sea-floor dynamics; the effect this has on the distribution of internal and seabed stress; and the relevance of the associated dynamics to sedimentation processes. The theoretical work described involved both... more...

  • Deep Ocean Circulationby T. Teramoto

    Elsevier Science 1993; US$ 72.95

    This volume comprises the final report of the research project entitled the Dynamics of the Deep Ocean Circulation. The layered structure of the subsurface circulation, which had been predicted in the hypothetical model proposed prior to the research, is verified through Eulerian and Lagrangian measurements of current. By the use of the numerical model,... more...
