9780120887590: Introduction to Geophysical Fluid Dynamics (International Geophysics)

This book provides an introductory-level exploration of geophysical fluid dynamics (GFD), the principles governing air and water flows on large terrestrial scales. Physical principles are illustrated with the aid of the simplest existing models, and the computer methods are shown in juxtaposition with the equations to which they apply. It explores contemporary topics of climate dynamics and equatorial dynamics including the Greenhouse Effect, global warming, and the El Nino Southern Oscillation.

*long-awaited second edition of the classic text
*combines both physical and numerical aspects of geophysical fluid dynamics into a single affordable volume
*includes CD-ROM with MatLab codes
*explores contemporary topics such as the Greenhouse Effect, global warming and the El Nino Southern Oscillation

Review:

"This book.is one of the best books introducing the subject matter. The physics underlying the different phenomena of interest to geophysical fluid dynamics is concisely explained.Several problems, questions and exercises are given at the end of each chapter. I highly recommend this to undergraduate students, however, graduate students will also benefit from the material presented."--Contemporary Physics, January 29, 2013 ".Introduction to Geophysical Fluid Dynamics is one of the best books introducing the subject matter.
