Item description for The Near-surface Layer of the Ocean by K. N. Federov...
This work treats the structure and variablity of basic physical fields in a thin near-surface layer which responds quickly to all short-term and local fluctuations of atmosphere forcing and of radiative solar energy flux. It contains information on different phenomena and processes in this layer based on research conducted over the last ten years. Topics covered include: basic types of vertical thermal structure of near-surface layers; anomalous phenomena on the ocan surface; thermal and haline boundary layers, its structures and relations to convection; diurnal thermocline and cycle nature of related processes; effects of precipitation on near-surface salinity and thermal structure; peculiarities of near-surface ocean currents; coherent (organized) forms of non-stationary currents (mushroom currents or vortex dipoles, transversal jets in coastal upwellings, vortices and jets in marginal ice zones); and some aspects of effectiveness of remote sensing of the ocean by aerospace technique. This book should be of interest to oceanographers, physicists, marine meteorologists and researchers in the field of remote sensing of the ocean.
