About this book

A monograph containing the results of research conducted by the Marine Hydrophysical Institute of the Ukraine on the Soviet climate RAZREZY programme. Based on summaries and modelling of the in situ data, the typical seasonal response of the main hydrophysical fields of the tropical Atlantic Ocean to seasonal wind fluctuations is described. The book also contains the kinematic structure of currents, heat and volume transport and characteristics of their seasonal and synoptic variability, as recorded during the trans-Atlantic surveys, and spectral characteristics of the intra-tropical convergence zone variability in the tropical Atlantic Ocean. This study should be of interest to researchers in oceanography and meteorology.
