- Springer New York 2008; US$ 152.41
This book draws on extensive observations as well as theory to develop a concise description of the impact of stress, rotation, and buoyancy on the turbulence scales that control exchanges between the atmosphere and underlying ocean when sea ice is present. more...
- Oxford University Press 1994; US$ 299.99 US$ 257.99
With both the growing importance of integrating studies of air-sea interaction and the interest in the general problem of global warming, the appearance of the second edition of this popular text is especially welcome. Thoroughly updated and revised, the authors have retained the accessible, comprehensive expository style that distinguished the earlier... more...

The recent increase in levels of population and human development in coastal areas has led to a greater importance of understanding atmosphere-ocean interactions. Human activities that depend on the oceans require improvements in operational forecasts for marine weather and ocean conditions, and associated marine climate. This second volume on atmosphere-ocean... more...
- Birkhäuser Basel 2008; US$ 76.20
Understanding, modeling and prediction of mesoscale processes in the atmosphere, ocean and environmental systems, have gained importance in the last decade or so. This is because of the availability of more sophisticated observational systems, provided by technological innovations and more realistic simulations using advanced dynamical models. This... more...
- Elsevier Science 1985; US$ 72.95
The exchange of momentum, heat, moisture, gases (such as CO 2 and O 2 ) and salt between the atmosphere and the ocean is a phenomenon of paramount importance for the dynamics of the atmosphere and the ocean. With the pressing need for reliable climate forecast (e.g. to deal with severe food and energy problems) interactive ocean-atmosphere models... more...

We are familiar with the periodic impact of El Nino on the earth's weather. Now Arnold Taylor unravels the much wider story of the connection between the world's atmosphere and oceans, demonstrating the scale and importance of this vast coupling, and its profound effect on the biosphere. more...
- Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 76.20
This book contributes to the current discussion on global environmental changes by discussing modifications in marine ecosystems related to global climate changes. In marine ecosystems, rising atmospheric CO2 and climate changes are associated with shifts in temperature, circulation, stratification, nutrient input, oxygen concentration and ocean acidification,... more...
- Elsevier Science 1982; US$ 78.95
A systematic, unifying approach to the dynamics of the ocean and atmosphere is given in this book, with emphasis on the larger-scale motions (from a few kilometers to global scale). The foundations of the subject (the equations of state and dynamical equations) are covered in some detail, so that students with training in mathematics should find it... more...
