About this book

This monograph is the first book on the oceanography of the Adriatic Sea. It is a synthesis between the physical oceanography of the Adriatic Sea, its water masses, overall circulation and regional dynamics as well as its connection to the rest of the Mediterranean Sea. Topical coverage ranges from historical surveys to contemporary methods of investigation and simulation. A final chapter identifies topics in need of further inquiry. This reference book should be an aid to all scientists and policy makers with an interest in the Adriatic Sea.
