The monograph gives the first unified and comprehensive account of the theory of rotating fluids. The mathematical development focuses on fundamental principles as revealed through the systematic study of simply constructed experiments, many of which are described for the first time. Special features of the book include a separate chapter devoted to non-linear processes and methods of solution, several sections reporting the results of previously unpublished research, and the identification of important unsolved problems. The discussion of basic concepts also allows for a wide range of engineering applications and a chapter is devoted to the laboratory simulation of large-scale oceanic circulations. The book will be of direct use to many applied mathematicians, engineers and physical oceanographers. (Author)
