Book Description:

This book gives a comprehensive presentation of the underlying oceanography and mathematics necessary to understand and develop a practical system of transmitters and receivers to interpret the behavior of the oceans. It covers the forward and inverse tomography problem, as well as numerous models for data interpretation. Also included is an epilogue outlining the history of tomographic techniques. It should prove a valuable resource to oceanographers and climatologists, as well as applied mathematicians and engineers interested in applications of fluid mechanics tools.

Review:

"The developers of...ocean acoustic tomography have now written a wonderful monograph." G.Z. Forristall, Applied Mechanics Review

"...provides a comprehensive presentation of the oceanography and mathematics necessary to understand and develop a practical system of transmitters and receivers to interpret the behavior of the oceans." Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society

"May this new book help to give new impulse to this exciting technique, which should play a key role in forthcoming ocean-climate programs observing programs within the context of the Climate Variability and Predictability Study (CLIVAR) and the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS)." Friedrich Schott, Science

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The problem of ocean acoustic tomography is to infer from precise measurements of travel time, or other properties of acoustic propagation, the state of the ocean traversed by a sound field. Tomography takes advantage of two facts: that travel time and other measurable acoustic parameters are functions of temperature, water velocity, and other parameters of oceanographic interest, and can be interpreted to provide information about the intervening ocean using inverse methods; and that the ocean is virtually transparent to low-frequency sound, so that signals can be transmitted over distances of many thousands of kilometres. It is therefore possible to prepare a practical system of transmitters and receivers to interpret the behaviour of the oceans. This book gives a comprehensive presentation of the underlying oceanography and mathematics necessary to understand and develop such a system. It covers the forward and inverse tomography problem, as well as numerous models for data interpretation. Also included is an epilogue outlining the history of tomographic techniques. It should prove a valuable resource to oceanographers and climatologists, as well as applied mathematicians and engineers interested in applications of fluid mechanics tools.
