Advances in Oceanography by X. Le Pichon, M. Melguen, J. C. Sibuet (auth.), Henry

By X. Le Pichon, M. Melguen, J. C. Sibuet (auth.), Henry Charnock, Sir George Deacon (eds.)

The papers on the common Symposia of the Joint Oceanographic meeting have been provided via authors who have been invited to house themes of huge interdisciplinary curiosity. jointly they gave a worthwhile account of the current country of marine study, its proQlems and strength. There turns out advantage in publishing them in a single quantity and we're thankful to the authors who kindly agreed to arrange their papers for ebook. This has taken your time (and now not all authors stumbled on it attainable) yet we are hoping the ensuing quantity continues to be indicative of tendencies in smooth oceanography. fairly obvious is the way the utilized features are starting to play a extra vital half despite concerns in regards to the results of the legislation of the ocean on our freedom to make observations. we're specially thankful to the 4 authors who agreed to offer lectures summarising the paintings of their personal box which was once mentioned on the meeting. We additionally desire to thank the opposite authors, in addition to all interested by the meeting and with the creation of this volume.

Reef-Platform Coral Boulders: Evidence for High-Energy Marine Inundation Events on Tropical Coastlines

The first aim this is to provide a treatise at the value and price of coarse clastic carbonate sediments (i. e. huge coral boulders) on tropical coastlines for realizing either glossy and pre-historical (Holocene) high-magnitude marine inundation occasions. there was a speedy groundswell of curiosity in huge carbonate blocks on tropical coasts over the past decade, but it isn't extensively preferred that such beneficial properties have been saw and recorded again within the early explorations of Matthew Flinders at the nice Barrier Reef within the 1800s.

Design of Coastal Structures and Sea Defenses

Coastal constructions are an immense part in any coastal defense scheme. They at once keep an eye on wave and typhoon surge motion or to stabilize a seashore which supplies security to the coast. This publication presents the main updated technical advances at the layout and development of coastal constructions and sea defenses.

Ray and Wave Chaos in Ocean Acoustics - Chaos in Waveguides

A scientific research of chaotic ray dynamics in underwater acoustic waveguides begun within the mid-1990s whilst it was once learned that this issue performs an important function in long-range sound propagation within the ocean. The phenomenon of ray chaos and its manifestation at a finite wavelength -- wave chaos -- were investigated via combining tools from the speculation of wave propagation and the idea of dynamical and quantum chaos.

Oceanography: An Invitation to Marine Science

Built in partnership with the nationwide Geographic Society, market-leading OCEANOGRAPHY: a call for participation TO MARINE technological know-how, 9e provides a uncomplicated figuring out of the medical questions, complexities, and uncertainties fascinated by ocean use-as good because the function and value of the sea in nurturing and maintaining existence on the earth.
