Dynamics of the ocean

Most popular at the top

  • Tsunamisby Kenji Satake

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 212.60

    This book contains 20 papers reflecting the state-of-the-art tsunami research. Most of them were presented at the two international meetings held in 2003: the 21st International Tsunami Symposium, held on July 9 and 10th as a part of IUGG general assembly in Sapporo, Japan, and an International Workshop on Tsunamis in the South Pacific, held on September... more...

  • The Agulhas Currentby Johann R.E. Lutjeharms

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 224.42

    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 the... more...

  • Interhemispheric Water Exchange in the Atlantic Oceanby G. J. Goni; P. M. Rizzoli

    Elsevier Science 2003; US$ 270.00

    Recent results from modeling and observational studies demonstrate that the tropical Atlantic is a critical region for processes that maintain the meridional overturning circulation, such as cross-equatorial exchanges, and for sea surface temperature variability that impacts on climate variability of the coupled tropical ocean/atmosphere system. ... more...

  • Wind Generated Ocean Wavesby I. R. Young

    Elsevier Science 1999; US$ 180.00

    The goals of wind wave research are relatively well defined: to be able to predict the wind wave field and its effect on the environment. That environment could be natural (beaches, the atmosphere etc.) or imposed by human endeavour (ports, harbours, coastal settlements etc.). Although the goals are similar, the specific requirements of these various... more...

  • Physical Oceanography of the Frontal Zones in Sub-Arctic Seasby A. G. Kostianoy; J. C. J. Nihoul; V. B. Rodionov

    Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 190.00

    This title presents the systematization and description of accumulated knowledge on oceanic fronts of the Norwegian, Greenland, Barents and Bering Seas. The main fronts of the Norwegian, Greenland and Barents Seas are part of the climatic North Polar Frontal Zone (NPFZ). The work is based on numerous observational data, collected by the authors during... more...

  • An Introduction to the Dynamics of El Nino and the Southern Oscillationby Allan J. Clarke

    Elsevier Science 2008; US$ 137.00

    Many scientists either working on the El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) problem or its many applications have not been trained in both the equatorial ocean and atmospheric dynamics necessary to understand it. This book seeks to overcome this difficulty by providing a step by step introduction to ENSO, helping the upper level graduate student or... more...

  • Nonlinear Physical Oceanographyby Henk A. Dijkstra

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 100.85

    In the ?rst edition of this book (publishedby Kluwer Academic in November 2000) the methodology of dynamical systems theory was introduced and appli- ˜ cations of this theory to the large-scale ocean circulation and El Nino were p- vided. Surprisedby the favorable reactions, I decided to make a second edition of the book which could be more easily... more...

  • Breaking Ocean Wavesby Eugene A. Sharkov

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 177.17

    Eugene Sharkov, of the Space Research Institute in Moscow, has here put together the most comprehensive description of the physical findings of an investigation into the spatio-temporal characteristics of the gravity of breaking waves. He’s also described the foam activity in the open sea using methods and instruments of optical and microwave remote... more...

  • Tsunamiby Edward Bryant

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 200.79

    In the last three years, there have been three large tsunamis in the Indian Ocean, most notably the notorious one which struck on 26 December 2004 and killed more than 238,000 people. It was generated by one of the largest recorded earthquakes in the last 100 years. Such events occur about four times per century, mainly in the Pacific Ocean. Few scientists... more...

  • Radar Imaging of the Ocean Wavesby Mikhail B. Kanevsky

    Elsevier Science 2008; US$ 126.00

    This book is dedicated to studying the ocean with radar tools, in particular, with space radars. Being intended mainly for the scientists preoccupied with the problem (as well as senior course students), it concentrates and generalizes the knowledge scattered over specialized journals. The significant part of the book contains the results obtained... more...
