Its selection of articles—all written by experts in their field—focuses on ocean physics, air-sea transfers, waves, mixing, ice, and the processes of transfer of properties such as heat, salinity, momentum and dissolved gases, within and into the ocean.

Elements of Physical Oceanography serves as an ideal reference for topical research. Elements of Physical Oceanography is a derivative of the Encyclopedia of Ocean Sciences, 2nd Edition and serves as an important reference on current physical oceanography knowledge and expertise in one convenient and accessible source.

Its selection of articles—all written by experts in their field—focuses on ocean physics, air-sea transfers, waves, mixing, ice, and the. Topics covered include the physical properties of seawater, heat and salt budgets, instrumentation, data analysis methods, introductory dynamics, oceanography and climate variability of each of the oceans and of the global ocean, and brief introductions to the physical setting, waves, and coastal oceanography.

Upwelling occurs on several coasts of the world, but it has mostly been studied on eastern ocean boundaries. We investigated upwelling on a western ocean boundary for Author: Robert H Stewart. A recent set of oceanographic measurements in the western equatorial Pacific has revealed the existence of previously undescribed major ocean currents and upper-ocean mixed-layer structure.

The measurements also confirm a year-old hypothesis on the water-mass origins of the Equatorial Undercurrent in the Pacific by: The Pacific Ocean Fig. Topography of the Pacific Ocean. The, and m isobaths are shown, and regions less than m deep are shaded.

The inter-oceanic ridge system divides the Atlantic and Indian Oceans into compartments of roughly equal size. In the Pacific Ocean it runs close to the eastern boundary, producing. Areas of Student Research. Circulation and Climate - The planetary-scale ocean circulation is the keystone of physical, chemical and biological oceanography and an important part of the Earth's climate system.

Coastal and Estuarine Processes - Polluted runoff and sewage, overfishing, and even global climate change, are affecting these regions far more rapidly and extensively than the deep sea. The subsurface, equatorward flowing current in Vitiaz Strait is remarkably strong (>1 m/s) and persistent throughout major seasonal wind shifts.

Mass transport estimates through Vitiaz Strait of 8–14 Sverdrup are discussed. George’s Channel mass transport is smaller (perhaps half) of that in Vitiaz by:   Purchase Regional Oceanography - 1st Edition. Print Book & E-Book. ISBNBook Edition: 1.

Publisher Summary. This chapter discusses the history of physical oceanography. While the ocean has been the object of many ancient science applications, the science of oceanography is fairly young. Its origins are in a great variety of earlier studies including some of the earliest applications of physics and mathematics to Earth processes.

Written by a respected scholar in the field, this comprehensive, contemporary introduction to physical oceanography strikes a balance between mathematical rigor and description so that it can be used with a fairly wide range of mathematical competence.

Covers fundamental topics of interest to biologists, chemists, geologists, and physical oceanographers. Physical Oceanography of the tropical Pacific - chapter for Geography of the Pacific Islands (M. Rapaport, editor. Bess Press, Honolulu, HI) Lynne D. Talley, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla CA Gerard Fryer, University of Hawaii at Manoa, Honolulu, HI Physical oceanography may be subdivided into descriptive and dynamical physical oceanography.

Descriptive physical oceanography seeks to research the ocean through observations and complex numerical models, which describe the fluid motions as precisely as possible. Dynamical physical oceanography focuses primarily upon the processes that govern the motion of fluids with emphasis.
