Item description for Waves in the Ocean and Atmosphere: Introduction to Wave Dynamics by Joseph Pedlosky...

Waves in the Ocean and Atmosphere presents a study of the fundamental theory of waves appropriate for first year graduate students in oceanography, meteorology and associated sciences. Starting with an elementary overview of the basic wave concept, specific wave phenomena are then examined, including: surface gravity waves, internal gravity waves, lee waves, waves in the presence of rotation, geostrophic adjustment, quasi-geostrophic waves and potential vorticity, wave-mean flow interaction and unstable waves. Each wave topic is used to introduce either a new technique or concept in general wave theory. Emphasis is placed on connectivity between the various subjects and on the physical interpretation of the mathematical results. The book contains numerous exercises at the end of the respective chapters.

Reviews - What do customers think about Waves in the Ocean and Atmosphere: Introduction to Wave Dynamics?

all of the essential of waves in the atmosphere and ocean   Mar 10, 2007
in meteorology and oceanography, there is no escape from the need to know waves well. even if you are not a dynamicist, you may find that you need to be familiar with many kinds of waves. fortunately, Pedlosky has put in one small-ish book a systematic introduction to waves. after studying this book, you will be more comfortable and confident with many things about waves. although you should probably know even more, because to know waves well cannot be overestimated in our fields.
