Introduction to Geophysical Fluid Dynamics: Physical and by Benoit Cushman-Roisin,Jean-Marie Beckers

By Benoit Cushman-Roisin,Jean-Marie Beckers

This e-book presents an introductory-level exploration of geophysical fluid dynamics (GFD), the foundations governing air and water flows on huge terrestrial scales. actual ideas are illustrated simply by the best present versions, and the pc tools are proven in juxtaposition with the equations to which they observe. It explores modern themes of weather dynamics and equatorial dynamics, together with the Greenhouse influence, international warming, and the El Nino Southern Oscillation.

  • Combines either actual and numerical facets of geophysical fluid dynamics right into a unmarried cheap volume
  • Explores modern themes similar to the Greenhouse influence, international warming and the El Nino Southern Oscillation
  • Biographical and historic notes on the ends of chapters hint the highbrow improvement of the field
  • Recipient of the 2010 Wernaers Prize, presented every year via the nationwide Fund for clinical examine of Belgium (FNR-FNRS).
