The Physical Oceanography of the Arctic Mediterranean Sea: Explorations, Observations, Interpretations (Paperback)
(This item is non-returnable and must be pre-paid.)
The Physical Oceanography of the Arctic Mediterranean Sea describes the circulation and the processes in the Arctic Mediterranean, how our present knowledge has developed, and presents recent changes caused by a gradually warmer global climate.
The Arctic Mediterranean Sea has been intensively studied in recent years, especially during the fourth International Polar Year, 2007-09, and we have become increasingly aware of the changes presently taking place. This book collects and presents newly acquired knowledge and sets it in perspective to previous studies. Authored by a world-renowned leader in the field, this book explores the role of this small but important sea in the global oceanic circulation and climate-a must-read for researchers and students in the fields of oceanography and climate science.
- Relates observed features to active processes and provides sufficient background information to understand the theoretical explanations
- Presents the Arctic Mediterranean Sea in the context of global ocean circulation and climate
- Presents a modern, comprehensive, and coherent treatment of Arctic (and subarctic) physical oceanography
