About this book

Air-Sea Interaction: Laws and Mechanisms, first published in 2001, provides a comprehensive account of how the atmosphere and the ocean interact to control the global climate, what physical laws govern this interaction, and its prominent mechanisms. In the early twenty-first century air-sea interaction emerged as a subject in its own right, encompassing small-scale and large-scale processes in both air and sea. By developing its subject from basic physical (thermodynamic) principles, Air-Sea Interaction: Laws and Mechanisms is broadly accessible to a wide audience. It is mainly directed towards graduate students and research scientists in meteorology, oceanography, and environmental engineering. Air-Sea Interaction: Laws and Mechanisms will be of value on entry level courses in meteorology and oceanography, and also to the broader physics community interested in the treatment of transfer laws, and thermodynamics of the atmosphere and ocean.

"[...] [This book] provides a new and long-needed perspective on air-sea interaction [...] Csanady provides an excellent synthesis of approaches and results."
