'! helpful and handy for people who want timely, authoritative information about the different processes that affect the wind stress over the sea.' EOS '! a very useful book ! It will be much referenced.' Grant Bigg, Weather ' ! this publication is an essential reference text owing to the rapidly changing nature of scientific progress. It will be a general guide and reference document for researchers and graduates in physical oceanography, meteorology, fluid dynamics and coastal engineering. Many who read this book will be inspired to carry out research in those areas which still have many specific problems to be solved.' Bulletin
