Comprehensive survey bringing together a discussion on equatorial, mid-latitude, high latitude, and coastal dynamics from the perspective of a modeler with descriptions on tides, air-sea and ice-ocean coupled models, and different kinds of numerical ocean models and the pre- and post-processing requirements and techniques.
From the Foreword by Kirk Bryan "This book...draws from many sources and an extensive background and experience in modeling to provide an understandable teaching tool and guide for research." "Ideal for a student or researcher who wants to understand the mathematical fundamentals of ocean processes." THE LEADING EDGE "I recommend the book to anyone wanting to obtain a deeper understanding of the many scientific and numerical aspects of oceanic circulation problems. "Numerical Models of Oceans and Oceanic Processes" is an indispensable textbook for graduate courses in geophysical fluid dynamics, applied hydrodynamics, ocean engineering and physical oceanography." --Andrzej Icha, Polish Academy of Science "...a tremendous source and time saver to numerical modelers...unhesitatingly recommended to anyone interested in numerical modeling." --Applied Mechanics Reviews, Volume 54 (1), Jan 2001 "When reading the book, because of my own area of research I had a particular interest in seeing how well it covered the different Arakawa grids, the three main types of deep-ocean model, the theory of tides, the representation of sea-ice, isopycnal mixing and open boundary conditions. I was pleased to find that they were all included, which must be a first, and that the sections concerned were often excellent introductions to the subjects." --D. Webb, Journal of Fluid Mechanics, 2001, Vol. 442.
