ocean information Books

  • Ocean Forecasting

    The book gives a first consistent overview of methods and applications of ocean forecasting around the world. This sector of marine science and technology is developing rapidly due to the increasing need for reliable, multidisciplinary information about the marine system, allowing the sustainable usage of coastal resources and the mitigation of ...

  • Ocean Biogeochemistry

    Oceans account for 50% of the anthropogenic CO2 released into the atmosphere. During the past 15 years an international programme, the Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS), has been studying the ocean carbon cycle to quantify and model the biological and physical processes whereby CO2 is pumped from the ocean's surface to the depths of the ocean, ...

  • Oceanic Basalts

    Oceanic basalts are the most abundant rock type found at the earth's surface, and as such they have been the subject of considerable research, particularly since the concept of sea-floor spreading became widely accepted. This book provides a review of these rocks, first dicussing how we sample the ocean floor and what we know about the structure ...

  • Ocean Pulse

    Aquaculture of the World Oceans-Is the Future at Our Doorstep? Fish as a Foodstuff-a Catch 22: IS Aquaculture a Solution? R.B. Abel. Underwater Technology Applications to Ocean Exploration: The Impact of Armed Forces on the Development of Marine Technology: A Look Back-A Look Ahead; D.R. Chandler. Precise Target Strength Pattern Measurement ...

  • Oceans and Health:

    The release of non-disinfected wastewaters into the marine environment is a common worldwide practice, in under-developed as well as in highly developed countries. Consequently, the seas are constantly infused with wastewater bacteria, among them highly pathogenic ones.In view of the public health significance of this phenomenon, it is surprising ...

  • Oceanic Migration

    Oceanic Migration studies the prehistoric peopling of the Pacific. It uses science and mathematics to expand the research base of Pacific prehistory and casts new light on this final human expansion. It explores the fundamental roles of oceanography and of global climate change in determining the paths, sequence, timing and range of Spice ...

  • Oceanic and Anthropogenic Controls of Life in the Pacific Ocean

    This volume presents a collection of original, multidisciplinary papers written by leading scientists from the various countries of the Pacific rim. The major topics covered are the origins of life in the marine environment; the changing distribution of biological parameters; hydrophysical and hydrochemical processes; and the exploitation of ...

  • Ocean Weather Forecasting

    The field of physical oceanography has matured to a point where it is now conceivable to combine numerical models and observations via data assimilation in order to provide ocean prediction products on various spatial and time scales. As a result, many nations have begun large-scale efforts to provide routine products to the oceanographic ...

  • Adrift: Tales of Ocean Fragility

    This book is a product of the Marine Conservation Sub-Committee, an advisory body on marine species issues within IUCN. The book features twelve stories of different ocean animals that highlight the latest issues in marine conservation. The tales in this exquisitely illustrated book are testament not only to the eccentricity of life in our oceans, ...

  • The Indian Ocean Tsunami

    Drawing on information gathered from a study of the Indian Ocean Tsunami of December 26, 2004, this book explores the development of methodologies for predicting and preparing for tsunamis. The volume provides a state-of-the-art review of tsunami science and indicates thrust areas which have the potential to improve temporal and spatial resolution ...

  • Ocean Modelling for Beginners

    The book gives an introduction to computer-based modelling of oceanic processes. It is the first of its kind and contains over twenty practical exercises, using freely available Open-Source software, and covers a wide range of topics from long surface waves, geostrophic flows, through to the general wind-driven circulation including western ...

  • High Frequency Ocean Acoustics

    All papers were peer-reviewed. Sound in the ocean is as fundamental as light in theatmosphere. The high-frequency acoustic band has been little studied in the past; however, new applications such as mine hunting, marine mammal tracking, and communications (the undersea internet) have generated tremendous interest. These peer-reviewed proceedings ...

  • Waves in the Ocean and Atmosphere

    Waves in the Ocean and Atmosphere presents a study of the fundamental theory of waves appropriate for first year graduate students in oceanography, meteorology and associated sciences. Starting with an elementary overview of the basic wave concept, specific wave phenomena are then examined, including: surface gravity waves, internal gravity waves, ...
