Reviews
From the reviews:
"This book is a must for any fluid dynamicist, physical oceanographer, coastal engineer, or physicist working with fluids. This clear, excellently written, comprehensive volume combines, in one place, all of the fundamental governing equations of fluid flow and ocean circulation. … The clarity of the writing … and the excellent, manageable problem sets at the end of each chapter make this a superb advanced undergraduate or graduatelevel work for anyone working with largescale fluid motion. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upperdivision undergraduate through professional collections." (B. Ransom, CHOICE, Vol. 46 (01), September, 2008)
“This wellorganized and insightful textbook provides a very nice introduction to modern oceanography, especially ocean circulation in various parts of the globe, at a level appropriate to an advanced undergraduate, or introductory graduate course. Each chapter addresses a particular ocean feature of interest. … Each chapter concludes with a summary box, outlining the basic lessons learned, and a set of exercises that add extra detail to some of the model calculations.” (Peter Bernard Weichman, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2011 i)
“‘Dynamical Oceanography’ is a textbook that introduces the reader to the subject by using a mathematically oriented approach that integrates elements of physical oceanography and geophysical fluid dynamics. Hence, the book is very attractive for students and researchers with a background in mathematics and physics and with an interest in ocean circulation. … A large number of figures, many in color, illustrate the material presented.” (Nina Kirchner, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1214, 2011)
