Description for Ocean Circulation: Wind-Driven and Thermohaline Processes hardcover. Covers two important aspects of large-scale ocean circulation - wind-driven circulation, and thermohaline-driven circulation caused by changes in water density. Num Pages: 806 pages, 32 colour illus. 23 tables. BIC Classification: RBKC. Category: (U) Tertiary Education (US: College). Dimension: 252 x 182 x 25. Weight in Grams: 1778.
The interaction between ocean circulation and climate change has been an active research frontier in Earth sciences in recent years. Ocean circulation, and its related geophysical fluid dynamical principles, are now taught at graduate level in many Earth and atmospheric science departments. This is the first advanced textbook to discuss both wind-driven and thermohaline-driven processes – two important aspects of large-scale ocean circulation. It provides a concise introduction to the dynamics and thermodynamics of oceanic general circulation. This includes sea water thermodynamics and the energetics of the ocean circulation; an exhaustive theory of wind-driven circulation; thermohaline circulation with discussions on ... Read more
