  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Earth and Life Processes Discovered from Subseafloor Environmentsby Ruediger Stein; Donna Blackman; Fumio Inagaki; Hans-Christian Larsen

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 140.00

    The Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP: 2000-2013) has provided crucial records of past and present processes and interactions within and between the biosphere, cryosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere and geosphere. Research in IODP encompasses a wide range of fundamental and applied issues that affect society, such as global climate change, biodiversity,... more...

  • Marine Ecological Geographyby Dmitry Ya Fashchuk

    Springer 2011; US$ 239.00

    In Chapter 1 the methodological principles of systemization and visualization of multidimensional ecological information for its operational dissemination among potential users are stated. Their realization results in creation of the geographic-and ecologic model of marine basin as an information base for diagnosis of the marine ecosystem state, estimation... more...

  • Subseafloor Biosphere Linked to Hydrothermal Systemsby Jun-ichiro Ishibashi; Kyoko Okino; Michinari Sunamura

    Springer Japan 2015; Not Available

    This book is the comprehensive volume of the TAIGA (?a great river ? in Japanese) project. Supported by the Japanese government, the project examined the hypothesis that the subseafloor fluid advection system (subseafloor TAIGA)   can be categorized into four types, TAIGAs of sulfur, hydrogen, carbon (methane), and iron, according to the most dominant... more...

  • Oceans and the Atmospheric Carbon Contentby Pedro Duarte; J. Magdalena Santana-Casiano

    Springer 2010; US$ 159.00

    "Oceans and the Atmospheric Carbon Content," presents an interdisciplinary overview of the role of the oceans as a carbon sink and its relation with pH increasing trends and climate change. This volume discusses topics such as: climate variability during the last deglaciation, based on a high-resolution pollen analysis; the potential impact... more...
