9780122835223: Atmosphere-Ocean Dynamics (International Geophysics Series, Volume 30)

A systematic, unifying approach to the dynamics of the ocean and atmosphere is given in this book, with emphasis on the larger-scale motions (from a few kilometers to global scale). The foundations of the subject (the equations of state and dynamical equations) are covered in some detail, so that students with training in mathematics should find it a self-contained text. Knowledge of fluid mechanics is helpful but not essential. Simple mathematical models are used to demonstrate the fundamental dynamical principles with plentiful illustrations from field and laboratory.

From the Back Cover:

In this important new work, Dr. Gill provides a unified, comprehensive approach to the study of oceanic and atmospheric circulations. He explains how atmospheric and oceanic circulations are ultimately driven by solar energy and covers the study of observed distributions of physical quantities, including temperature. Concise treatments of basic hydrostatics and thermodynamics are also provided.
This instructive work uses simple mathematical models to illustrate fundamental dynamical principles, enabling scholars from diverse disciplines to understand complex theory. Furthermore, the equations of state and dynamical equations are covered in detail, making this a self-contained text for those with advanced mathematical training. The extensive bibliography and index and the historical information included make this volume useful reading for researchers, as well as a valuable text for both undergraduate and graduate students in meteorology, oceanography, and geophysical fluid dynamics.
