Matt Parke rated it really liked it Dec 10, This textbook covers physical-oceanographic processes, theories, data, and measurements, targeted at upper-division undergraduates and graduate students in oceanography, meteorology, and ocean engineering. I would physival this text to someone teaching a physical oceanography course. This is well-designed for an upper division undergraduate course, but not for use for an introductory oceanography course.

In addition to the classical topics, the author includes discussions of heat fluxes, the role of the ocean in climate, the deep circulation, equatorial introdudtion including El Nino, intriduction bases used by oceanographers, the role of satellites and data from space, ship-based measurements, and the importance of vorticity in understanding oceanic flows.
