About this book

This second edition of the widely acclaimed Geophysical Fluid Dynamics by Joseph Pedlosky offers the reader a high-level, unified treatment of the theory of the dynamics of large-scale motions of the oceans and atmosphere. Revised and updated, it includes expanded discussions of * the fundamentals of geostrophic turbulence * the theory of wave-mean flow interaction * thermocline theory * finite amplitude barocline instability.


Contents

Fundamentals; inviscid shallow water theory; friction and viscous flow; homogeneous models of the wind-driven oceanic circulation; quasigeostrophic motion of a stratified fluid on a sphere; instability theory; ageostrophic motion.
