'Herman Medwin died in January 2006 at the age of 85. This book acts magnificently as a memorial to him ! The ascribed multiple authorship of this volume ! stands as a telling testament to this influence ! it is clearly written, and each chapter is provided with a range of problems which may be used to assess how well the presentted material has been assimilated ! a useful introduction to non-linear effects such as parametric generation, acoustic streaming and the characteristics of explosive sources ! This is a magnificent book, a worthy occupant of shelf space in any oceanographic library.' The Magazine of the Challenger Society for Marine Science
