Lectures on Geophysical Fluid Dynamics offers an introduction to several topics in geophysical fluid dynamics, including the theory of large-scale ocean circulation, geostrophic turbulence, and Hamiltonian fluid dynamics. Since each chapter is a self-contained introduction to its particular topic, the book will be useful to students and researchers in diverse scientific fields.

About the Author:

Richard L. Salmon is at University of California, San Diego.

Review:


"Salmon's [book] is a refreshing and original treatment of large-scale dynamics of fluids with rotation and stratification, using Hamilton's principle as an organizing point. It is the first such monograph to discuss geostrophic eddy motions and statistical turbulence theory in the context of oceans and atmospheres. ... Salmon's scope ... narrows the focus to the point where the material is nicely linked. As a student said to me, 'After reading a chapter, you know where you have been.' There is a deductive flow that is very appealing. ... Salmon has provided a monograph in the classic style, and a textbook for those excited by the rigor and fundamental approach of physics. Theory is the process by which complex events in nature are simplified, encapsulated, organized, generalized, remembered, and transmitted to future generations. This volume will help it to survive the digital-numerical world."--Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society

Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 1998. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Lectures on Geophysical Fluid Dynamics offers an introduction to several topics in theoretical geophysical fluid dynamics, including the theory of large-scale ocean circulation, geostrophic turbulence, and Hamiltonian fluid dynamics. The book is based on an introductory course in dynamical oceanography offered to first-year graduate students at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Each chapter is a self-contained introduction ti its particular subject, andmakes few specific references to other chapters. Chapters 1 examines the relationship between the molecular and continuum models of the fluid, and between the Eulerian and Lagrangian descriptions of the latter. Ch.2 is a broad introduction to the fluid dynamics of rotating, stratified flows. Ch.3 adddresseslarge-scale ocean circulation. Chs.4,5 and 6 discuss the theory of turbulence, including elementary ideas based on vorticity laws (Ch.4), statistical turbulence theory (Ch.5), and the applications of these ideas to quasigeostrophic flows in the Earth's oceans and atmosphere (Ch.6). Ch.7 surveys Hamiltonoian fluid dynamics, including the interaction between waves and currents, and "balanced" approximations to nearly geostrophic flow. Overall, the emphasis is on physical ideas rather thanmathematical techniques. Readers are assumed to have had an elementary introduction to fluid mechanics, to know advanced calculus through partial differential equations, and to be familiar with the elementary ideas about linear waves, including the concept of group velocity.
