'This is an excellent book, indespensable reading for anyone (with some background in mathematics and fluid mechanics) interested in understanding and modelling the dynamics of ocean waves ... One gets the sense of a very lively, enthusiastic and dedicated scientific grouping that must have been great fun.' Lucy Wyatt, Ocean Challenge '... the principal authors have done an admirable job of assembling a coherent whole and of providing a firm base for the exploration of the many challenging problems to come.' John Miles, Science 'The book contains both detailed aspects for modelling specialists or engineers but also indispensable rudiments for students of physics, oceanography or meteorology or for users interested in knowing the achievements and possibilities of wave modelling ...'. World Meteorological Organization Bulletin
