About this book

The theme of this book is the inter-hemispheric and inter-gyre exchanges of heat, salt and fresh water. Its goal is to improve knowledge of tropical Atlantic dynamics and how they affect the global ocean.

...this is a fine advanced text covering a topic - the mean and seasonal circulation of the tropical Atalantic Ocean - an increasing interest to climate researchers. -James Carton, in BULLETIN OF THE AMERICAN METEOROLOGICAL SOCEITY A.L. Gordon ...The interhemispheric exchange of the warm water within the upper kilometer of the tropical Atlantic is the main theme of the excellent collection of research papers or chapters composing the book.
