Small Scale Processes in Geophysical Fluid Flows (International Geophysics Series, Vol. 67)
|von L. H. Kantha|
From Book News, Inc. Kantha (U. of Colorado-Boulder) and Clayson (Purdue U.) compile information from scattered journal articles detailing the various mixing processes operating within and between the ocean and its boundaries with the atmosphere and ocean floor. In a logical arrangement, they describe the relationships between mixing processes and the physical, chemical, and biological processes governing the interactions within and between the atmospheric and oceanic environments. Their intention was that newcomers to oceanography with the necessary background in mathematics and physics can find introductions to the various research topics without having to wade through the deluge of literature.Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR
Kurzbeschreibung While ocean waves are the most visible example of oceanic mixing processes, this macroscale mixing process represents but one end of the spectrum of mixing processes operating in the ocean. At the scale of a typical phytoplanktoic diatom or larval fish inhabiting these seas, the most important mixing processes occur on the molecular scale - at the scale of turbulence. Physical-biological interactions at this scale are of paramount importance to the productivity of the seas (fisheries) and the...
