  • Ocean Modeling in an Eddying Regimeby Matthew W. Hecht; Hiroyasu Hasumi

    Wiley 2013; US$ 128.00

    Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume 177. This monograph is the first to survey progress in realistic simulation in a strongly eddying regime made possible by recent increases in computational capability. Its contributors comprise the leading researchers in this important and constantly evolving... more...

  • Ocean Circulationby Andreas Schmittner; John C. H. Chiang; Sidney R. Hemming

    Wiley 2013; US$ 124.00

    Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume 173. The ocean's meridional overturning circulation (MOC) is a key factor in climate change. The Atlantic MOC, in particular, is believed to play an active role in the regional and global climate variability. It is associated with the recent debate on... more...

  • The Mediterranean Seaby Gianluca Eusebi Borzelli; Miroslav Gacic; Piero Lionello; Paola Malanotte-Rizzoli

    Wiley 2014; US$ 129.95

    Surface, intermediate, and deep-water processes and their interaction in time and space drive the major ocean circulation of the Mediterranean Sea. All major forcing mechanisms, such as surface wind forcing, buoyancy fluxes, lateral mass exchange, and deep convection determining the global oceanic circulation are present in this body of water. Deep... more...

  • Seven-Tenthsby David Fisichella

    Leapfrog Press 2010; US$ 15.95

    A disillusioned man and a blind oceanographer find love and adventure while studying the world's oceans. more...

  • Case Studies in Oceanography and Marine Affairsby Joan Brown; Gerry Bearman

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    This is the last volume in the six-volume Open University set. Each volume is required by students as a relevant part of the Open University course but designed so that it can equally be used as an individual textbook. This volume differs from the others in the series in that it does not draw specifically upon traditional scientific disciplines. The... more...

  • Waves, Tides and Shallow-Water Processesby Joan Brown; Gerry Bearman

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 31.95

    The text begins by describing waves, their measurement and characteristics, their behaviour in shallow water, and unusual waves. Next, mainly theoretical aspects are considered of sediment movement and deposition by currents, before discussing wave action in the littoral zone, tidal current action on tidal flat and in estuaries, and the interaction... more...

  • Ocean Circulationby Joan Brown

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    The first two chapters outline the causes of circulation patterns in the atmosphere and oceans, emphasizing the interactions between them. Chapter 3 deals with the surface circulation (including mesoscale eddies), using a minimum of mathematics. Chapter 4 reviews the history of ideas about ocean circulation (with special reference to the North Atlantic... more...

  • Principles of Ocean Physicsby John R. Apel; William L. Donn

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 93.95

    In recent years, significant advances in both the theoretical and observational sides of physical oceanography have allowed the ocean's physical behavior to be described more quantitatively. This book discusses the physical mechanisms and processes of the sea, and will be valuable not only to oceanographers but also physicists, graduate students,... more...

  • Oceanography And Marine Biology: Volume 20by Harold Barnes

    Routledge 1982; US$ 148.00

    Once again it has not been possible to enclose all the manuscripts offered for the present volume. Such enthusiasm to obtain publication in the Annual Reviews is greatly appreciated and must be the best indication of their value to marine scientists. The congenial relations with the contributors and the care of the publishers have again made the... more...

  • Oceanography And Marine Biology: Volume 22by Harold Barnes

    Routledge 1984; US$ 160.00

    Manuscripts continue to be submitted to this series of Annual Reviews. The desire to publish in it must reflect its importance and value to marine scientists in general. Many experts are still willing, and even anxious, to accept invitations to contribute articles. This is all very gratifying to me as the editor and to the publishers; it ensures... more...
