Atmosphere, Ocean and Climate Dynamics: An Introductory Text

Year: 2008
Language: english
Author: John Marshall, R. Alan Plumb
Genre: Manual
Publisher: Elsevier
ISBN: 978-0-12-558691-7
Format: PDF
Quality: eBook
Pages count: 345
Description: This book is an introductory text on the circulation of the atmosphere and ocean, with a particular emphasis on global scales phaenomena. It is aimed to undergraduate students or operators with little or no prior knowledge of meteorology and oceanography, nor trained in fluid mechanics. The book is roughly divided into three parts. The first one (Chapters 1 to 5) deals with the atmosphere characteristics and his vertical structure, energy balance, and convection. A second part (Chapter 6, 7 and 8) lays the foundation for solid knowledge in fluid dynamics and discusses the general circulation of the atmosphere. The last part (Chapters 9 to 12) is on the ocean and its role in climate. The structure of the book allows the reader to use it in different ways, focusing on atmosphere if interested primarily in it. Those who are interested in the ocean can begin at Chapter 9, referring back as necessary to the dynamical Chapters 6 and 7.
