Oceanography

  • Abyssal Channels in the Atlantic Oceanby Eugene G. Morozov; Alexander N. Demidov; Roman Y. Tarakanov; Walter Zenk

    Springer 2010; US$ 129.00

    This book is dedicated to the study of structure and transport of deep and bottom waters through underwater channels of the Atlantic Ocean. The study is based on recent observations, analysis of historical data, and literature review. A strong flow of Antarctic Bottom Water from the Argentine Basin to the Brazil Basin through the Vema Channel (32iCdegree-27iCdegree... more...

  • Accretionary Prisms and Convergent Margin Tectonics in the Northwest Pacific Basinby Yujiro Ogawa; Ryo Anma; Yildirim Dilek

    Springer 2011; US$ 179.00

    Accretionary prisms in convergent margins are natural laboratories for exploring initial orogenic processes and mountain building episodes. They are also an important component of continental growth both vertically and laterally. Accretionary prisms are seismically highly active and their internal deformation via megathrusting and out-of-sequence faulting... more...

  • Advanced Numerical Models for Simulating Tsunami Waves and Runupby Philip L.F. Liu; Harry Yeh; Costas E. Synolakis

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 153.00

    This review volume is divided into two parts. The first part includes five review papers on various numerical models. Pedersen provides a brief but thorough review of the theoretical background for depth-integrated wave equations, which are employed to simulate tsunami runup. LeVeque and George describe high-resolution finite volume methods for solving... more...

  • Advanced Ocean Modellingby Jochen Kämpf

    Springer 2010; US$ 159.00

    This book introduces the reader to advanced methods used in the computer-based modelling of fluid processes. This includes nonhydrostatic processes such as breaking internal waves and density-driven convection, but the model code is also used to simulate an El-Nino event! The book contains 25 practical exercises, using freely available Open-Source... more...

  • Advances in Coastal Modelingby V.C. Lakhan

    Elsevier Science 2003; US$ 275.00

    This book unifies and enhances the accessibility of contemporary scholarly research on advances in coastal modeling. A comprehensive spectrum of innovative models addresses the wide diversity and multifaceted aspects of coastal research on the complex natural processes, dynamics, interactions and responses of the coastal supersystem and its associated... more...

  • Advances in Coastal and Ocean Engineering, Vol 1by Philip L.F. Liu

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1995; US$ 179.00

    The aim of this review series is to present critical commentaries on knowledge in the field of coastal and ocean engineering. Each article will review and illuminate the development of the scientific understanding of a specific engineering topic. Critical reviews on engineering designs and practices in different countries will also be included. The... more...

  • Advances in Coastal and Ocean Engineering, Vol 3by Philip L.F. Liu

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 132.00

    This review volume, the third in the series, presents the latest topics for discussion, which provides invaluable information to coastal and ocean engineers around the world. In the first paper of this volume, entitled “Internal Solitary Waves”, Grimshaw reviews the basic theory of weakly nonlinear waves in an incompressible density-stratified... more...

  • Advances in Coastal and Ocean Engineering, Vol 7by Philip L. F. Liu

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 187.00

    This invaluable volume consists of five articles covering a wide range of topics in coastal oceanographic engineering. The reader can find an article discussing the modern bubble measurement techniques applied to field studies of bubble dynamics in coastal shallow water. A comprehensive review paper on nonlinear modulation of water waves provides readers... more...

  • Advances in Coastal and Ocean Engineering, Vol 8by D.H. Peregrine; Philip L.F. Liu; M. Brocchini

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2002; US$ 98.00

    This book is a useful source of ideas and information for scientists whose work involves understanding and modelling turbulent flows with free surfaces. It has the following merits: (1) It provides a framework for developing the analysis of this field, which, although important, has received only limited study; (2) It recognizes the importance of the... more...

  • Advances in Geophysicsby Renata Dmowska

    Elsevier Science 1999; US$ 220.00

    This series provides a venue for longer reviews of current advances in geophysics. Written at a level accessible to graduate students, the articles serve to broaden knowledge of various fields and may be useful in courses and seminars. more...
