  • Marine Surface Filmsby Martin Gade; Heinrich Hühnerfuss; Gerald M. Korenowski

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 179.00

    Describes air-sea interaction experiments, and presents remote sensing applications with sea slicks and crude oil spills. This book deals with the research in this field - the influence of marine surface films on mechanisms dominating energy and mass transfer across the ocean/atmosphere interface. It also offers basic chemical insights. more...

  • The Agulhas Currentby J.R.E. Lutjeharms

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 269.00

    The Agulhas Current is one of the major currents of the world ocean. In the network of currents that connect the major ocean basins, it forms a key link. This linkage may be of critical importance in the way the ocean affects the earth's climate and climate change. Based on the research findings of 60 years, the author describes the origins of... more...

  • Modern Approaches to Data Assimilation in Ocean Modelingby P. Malanotte-Rizzoli

    Elsevier Science 1996; US$ 220.00

    The field of oceanographic data assimilation is now well established. The main area of concern of oceanographic data assimilation is the necessity for systematic model improvement and ocean state estimation. In this respect, the book presents the newest, innovative applications combining the most sophisticated assimilation methods with the most complex... more...
