Baroclinic Processes on Continental Shelves by Christopher N. K. Mooers

By Christopher N. K. Mooers

About The Product

Published via the yankee Geophysical Union as a part of the Coastal and Estuarine Sciences Series.

The AGU Monograph sequence on Coastal and Estuarine Regimes offers well timed summaries and experiences of significant procedure and nearby reports, either observational and theoretical, and of theoretical and numerical types. It grew out of an IAPSO/SCOR/ECOR operating workforce initiative numerous years in the past meant to reinforce medical communications in this subject. The sequence' authors and editors are drawn from the foreign neighborhood. the last word target is to stimulate bringing the idea, observations, and modeling of coastal and estuarine regimes jointly at the worldwide scale.

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

The first target this is to provide a treatise at the importance and cost of coarse clastic carbonate sediments (i. e. huge coral boulders) on tropical coastlines for figuring out either smooth and pre-historical (Holocene) high-magnitude marine inundation occasions. there was a quick groundswell of curiosity in huge carbonate blocks on tropical coasts during the last decade, but it isn't commonly liked that such positive factors 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 buildings are an enormous part in any coastal defense scheme. They without delay keep an eye on wave and typhoon surge motion or to stabilize a seashore which gives defense to the coast. This publication offers the main updated technical advances at the layout and development of coastal buildings and sea defenses.

Ray and Wave Chaos in Ocean Acoustics - Chaos in Waveguides

A scientific learn of chaotic ray dynamics in underwater acoustic waveguides started within the mid-1990s whilst it used to be discovered that this issue performs a vital position in long-range sound propagation within the ocean. The phenomenon of ray chaos and its manifestation at a finite wavelength -- wave chaos -- were investigated through combining equipment from the idea of wave propagation and the idea of dynamical and quantum chaos.

Oceanography: An Invitation to Marine Science

Constructed in partnership with the nationwide Geographic Society, market-leading OCEANOGRAPHY: a call for participation TO MARINE technological know-how, 9e can provide a easy realizing of the clinical questions, complexities, and uncertainties inquisitive about ocean use-as good because the function and significance of the sea in nurturing and maintaining lifestyles on the earth.
