This is the first and only introductory level text available on geophysical fluid dynamics. Emphasis is placed on physics, not mathematics and simple and complex laboratory demonstrations are featured in most chapters. Special contemporary topics, of climate dynamics and equatorial dynamics, including the greenhouse effect, global warming and southern oscillation are covered.3/5(1). Book Description Oxford Elsevier LTD Dez , Buch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - Introduction to Geophysical Fluid Dynamics provides an introductory-level exploration of geophysical fluid dynamics (GFD), the principles governing air /5(10).

Geophysical fluid dynamics examines the dynamics of stratified and turbulent motion of fluids in the ocean and outer core, and of gases in the atmosphere. This book explains key notions and fundamental processes of the dynamics of large- and medium-scale atmospheric and oceanic motions from the unifying viewpoint of the rotating shallow water model. Geophysical Fluid Dynamics In this book we will address a variety of topics that, taken together, comprise an introduction to geophysical uid dynamics (GFD). The discussion is intended to be more about the concepts and methods of the subject than speci c formulae or observed phenomena. I hope they will be of both presentFile Size: 7MB.

Geophysical fluid dynamics, in its broadest meaning, refers to the fluid dynamics of naturally occurring flows, such as lava flows, oceans, and planetary atmospheres, on Earth and other planets. Two physical features that are common to many of the phenomena studied in geophysical fluid dynamics are rotation of the fluid due to the planetary rotation and.
