About this book

Provides an overview of current developments in theoretical aspects of atmosphere-ocean interactions. These include the fundamental influence of the ocean surface on the atmospheric dynamics and also the impact of atmospheric phenomena on the upper ocean.

...a highly readable summary of the state of the science in atmosphere-ocean interactions...a valuable contribution and a worthy addition to the library of both the generalist and specialist in air-sea interaction. - BULLETIN OF THE AMERICAN METEOROLOGICAL SOCIETY


Contents

A review of the sea spray generation function for the open ocean; The extratropical transformation: a scientific challenge; Tropical cyclone-ocean interactions; Storm simulations using a regional coupled atmosphere-ocean modeling system; Impact and feedback of ocean waves on the atmosphere; Regional atmosphere-wave-ocean impacts; Boundary layer models for the ocean and the atmosphere; The influence of air-sea interaction on tropical cyclones; Impact of climate change on tropical cyclones.
