Ocean in the Earth System

by Patrick Prouzet & André Monaco

Complexity is an intrinsic property of natural systems. In the oceanic system, it is linked to many interactions with the atmosphere, geosphere and biosphere with which it exchanges energy and matter.

Complexity...


Marine Coastal and Water Pollutions

by Frédéric Muttin

Identifying efficient solutions to protect coastal regions from marine pollution requires expertise from a range of specialties and strategic approaches. This book gathers information on the impact of oil spills...


Papa Topside: The Sealab Chronicles of Capt. George F. Bond, USN

by Helen A. Siiteri

A pioneer in the field of deep-sea diving, George F. Bond helped develop the theory of saturation diving and the techniques and dive tables used by divers around the world. In this edited journal—made public...


An Introduction to Hydraulics of Fine Sediment Transport

by Ashish J Mehta

This book presents observations on the phenomena of fine sediment transport and their explanations under process-related divisions such as flocculation, erosion, and deposition.

The text is a compilation of the...


Ocean Surface Waves: Their Physics and Prediction

by STANISLAW R MASSEL

The book is an extended and updated edition of the book published in 1996 under the same title (World Scientific, ISBN 9810216866). It contains a very comprehensive and extensive study on surface ocean waves...


Coastal Dynamics

by Willem T Bakker

Our world is constantly changing, governed by continuity, dynamic interactions and boundary conditions. For many coasts, the common denominators contributing to these changes are sand, waves, tides, salt gradients,...


Theory and Applications of Ocean Surface Waves: Part 1: Linear AspectsPart 2: Nonlinear Aspects

by C Mei Chiang & Michael Stiassnie

This book is an expanded version of The Applied Dynamics of Ocean Surface Waves. It presents theoretical topics on ocean wave dynamics, including basic principles and applications in coastal and offshore engineering...


Water Wave Mechanics for Engineers and Scientists

by Robert G Dean & Robert A Dalrymple

This book is intended as an introduction to classical water wave theory for the college senior or first year graduate student. The material is self-contained; almost all mathematical and engineering concepts...


Mechanics of Coastal Sediment Transport

by Jørgen Fredsøe & Rolf Deigaard

This book treats the subject of sediment transport in the marine environment, covering transport of noncohesive sediment by waves and currents in- and outside the surf zone. It can be read independently, but...


Numerical Modeling of Ocean Dynamics

by ZYGMUNT KOWALIK & T S MURTY

While there are several excellent books dealing with numerical analysis and analytical theory, one has to practically sift through hundreds of references. This monograph is an attempt to partly rectify this...


Beyond the Moon: A Conversational, Common Sense Guide to Understanding the Tides

by JAMES GREIG MCCULLY

Finally, someone has written a comprehensive, easily readable explanation of the tides on earth that is both simple enough for students and solid enough for their professors. Step by step, by analogy and illustration,...


In Kon-Tiki's Wake

by Pete J Capelotti

It was the original Survivor series, only without the omnipresent cameras, paramedics, and faux tribal rituals. Between the spring of 1947 and the summer of the year 2006, more than forty expeditions sought...


Thermodynamics of Atmospheres and Oceans

by Judith A. Curry & Peter J. Webster

Atmospheric and climatological studies are becoming more and more important in day-to-day living. Winds and ocean current owe their existence to the thermodynamic imbalances that arise from the differential...


Identifying Marine Phytoplankton

by Carmelo R. Tomas

Identifying Marine Phytoplankton is an accurate and authoritative guide to the identification of marine diatoms and dinoflagellates, meant to be used with tools as simple as a light microscope. The book compiles...


Dynamical Paleoclimatology: Generalized Theory of Global Climate Change

by Barry Saltzman

The book discusses the ideas and creates a framework for building toward a theory of paleoclimate. Using the rich and mounting array of observational evidence of climatic changes from geology, geochemistry,...


Marine Mammals of the World: A Comprehensive Guide to Their Identification: A Comprehensive Guide to Their Identification

by Thomas A. Jefferson, Marc A. Webber & Robert L. Pitman

With coverage on all the marine mammals of the world, authors Jefferson, Webber, and Pitman have created a user-friendly guide to identify marine mammals alive in nature (at sea or on the beach), dead specimens...


The Beach Book: Science of the Shore

by Carl H Hobbs

For those with a curiosity about shores or a desire to better understand them, The Beach Book shares the basic science behind waves, tides, sea level, sand dunes, salt marshes, and beach erosion. It tells sunbathers...


General Circulation Model Development: Past, Present, and Future

by David A. Randall

General Circulation Models (GCMs) are rapidly assuming widespread use as powerful tools for predicting global events on time scales of months to decades, such as the onset of EL Nino, monsoons, soil moisture...


Small Scale Processes in Geophysical Fluid Flows

by Lakshmi H. Kantha & Carol Anne Clayson

While ocean waves are the most visible example of oceanic mixing processes, this macroscale mixing process represents but one end of the spectrum of mixing processes operating in the ocean. At the scale of a...
