Presents material that spans a broad spectrum of issues critical for modern ocean climate models. Topics are organized into parts consisting of related chapters, with each part largely self-contained. Early chapters focus on the basic equations arising from classical mechanics and thermodynamics used to rationalize ocean fluid dynamics. It moves on to focus on the parameterization of phenomena occurring at scales unresolved by the ocean model, which represents a large part of modern oceanographic research.
Stephen Griffie's book ... will be found open on the desks of those who develop ocean models for years to come... This is a unique and useful work. -- Matthew Hecht Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society
