About The Product

Published by means of the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Coastal and Estuarine Sciences Series.

The AGU Monograph sequence on Coastal and Estuarine Regimes presents well timed summaries and studies of significant technique and nearby reviews, either observational and theoretical, and of theoretical and numerical versions. It grew out of an IAPSO/SCOR/ECOR operating workforce initiative numerous years in the past meant to reinforce clinical communications in this subject. The sequence' authors and editors are drawn from the foreign neighborhood. the last word objective is to stimulate bringing the speculation, observations, and modeling of coastal and estuarine regimes jointly at the international scale.

Environmental Stratified Flows (Topics in Environmental Fluid Mechanics)

The dynamics of flows in density-stratified fluids are an vital subject for clinical enquiry. Flows come up in lots of contexts, starting from commercial settings to the oceanic and atmospheric environments. either the sea and surroundings are characterised by way of the simple vertical density stratification, and this selection can impact the dynamics on all scales starting from the micro-scale to the planetary scale.

Interhemispheric Water Exchange in the Atlantic Ocean

Contemporary effects from modeling and observational experiences exhibit that the tropical Atlantic is a severe quarter for techniques that hold the meridional overturning movement, reminiscent of cross-equatorial exchanges, and for sea floor temperature variability that affects on weather variability of the coupled tropical ocean/atmosphere process.

Shifting Baselines: The Past and the Future of Ocean Fisheries

Moving Baselines explores the real-world implications of a groundbreaking notion: we needs to comprehend the oceans of the previous to guard the oceans of the long run. In 1995, acclaimed marine biologist Daniel Pauly coined the time period "shifting baselines" to explain a phenomenon of decreased expectancies, during which every one iteration regards a steadily poorer flora and fauna as common.

Quasi-Geostrophic Theory of Oceans and Atmosphere: Topics in the Dynamics and Thermodynamics of the Fluid Earth

Large-scale winds and currents are likely to stability Coriolis and strain gradient forces. The time evolution of those winds and currents is the topic of the quasi-geostrophic thought. bankruptcy 1 offers innovations and equations of classical inertial fluid mechanics. bankruptcy 2 offers with the equations of thermodynamics that shut the governing equations of the fluids.
