Written by a respected scholar in the field, this comprehensive, contemporary introduction to physical oceanography strikes a balance between mathematical rigor and description so that it can be used with a fairly wide range of mathematical competence. Covers fundamental topics of interest to biologists, chemists, geologists, and physical oceanographers. Features all new material on The Coastal Ocean and Semi Enclosed Seas (Chapter 11). Extensively updated with new content in each chapter (e.g.: long waves (Chapter 10), the equation of state (Chapter 2), and examples of what can be learned from satellite observations (Chapters 8 and 12)).
