About this book

Includes analysis, interpretation, modelling and synthesis of all data gathered during the ongoing World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE), providing the basis for development of the models that scientists use for understanding ocean and climate variability and projecting climate change.

Media reviews

"Ocean Circulation and Climate is the culmination of a multi-national, multi-decadal program designed to observe the global ocean. [...] a voluminous book, unique in that there is no other single volume to which one can turn as a source for the cutting edge of knowledge of the large-scale circulation and properties of the ocean. [...] lays the foundation for the daunting challenge of understanding the future of the world oceans and their role in climate change."
- Episodes, Journal Of International Geoscience

" [...] excellent editing and production quality plus hundreds of diagrams and dozens of color plates. It will be essential for ocean and climate scientists for years to come."
– New Scientist, October 2001

"This compilation addresses such topics as the role of the oceans in climate, ocean-atmosphere coupling, water mass formation, and the transport of momentum, heat, and freshwater throughout the global ocean. Interwoven into the narrative is a rich history of the development of modern oceanography, and beautiful color plates [...] This volume will serve as a resource for graduate students in oceanography and climatology and as a reference for researchers and professionals, including meteorologists."
Choice, December 2001

"Oceanographers, meteorologists, and climate scientists will find this book to be of particular value."
Northeastern Naturalist, 2005
