The distinguished physical oceanographer Henry Stommel provides a lucid account of the ocean's circulation-a subject that has seldom if ever been explained for the many general readers who are interested in the study of the oceans.From Library Journal:
In this book for the lay reader, an eminent oceanographer who has contributed much to modern concepts of ocean circulation focuses on circulation of the upper ocean. A dialogue between an oceanographer and a research vessel's chief engineer shows how theoretical models of ocean circulation can be applied to data collected to explain ocean circulation phenomena. Major topics include gravity and pressure, earth's rotation, Coriolis force, density field measurements, geostrophic velocity, and wind-driven models. An appendix lists nine pc-based programs that graphically illustrate the book's concepts. General readers with some scientific background will gain insight to oceanographers' research methods and problems in this complicated field. Kendra Peterson St. Aubin, Sippican Inc.
