About this book

Comprehensive presentation of the underlying oceanography and mathematics necessary to understand and develop a practical system of transmitters and receivers to interpret the behaviour of the oceans.

'The authors are the leaders of the field, having worked together over the past two decades to develop it. Munk, as the godfather of tomography, has continuously pushed it to new limits. ! May this excellent book help to give new impulse to this exciting technique.' Science 'The choice of topics gives a complete overview of the theory underlying ocean acoustic tomography ! For scientists and graduate students involved in acoustic tomography, this volume is the definitive reference.' Yves Desaubies, Journal of Fluid Mechanics '! the monograph is remarkable for the clarity in style and the handsome presentation ! it is certainly a 'must' for all those working in the emerging field of acoustical oceanography.' Yves Desaubies, Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology
