    Oceanography itself involves the full spectrum of physical, biological, and earth sciences in their formal, empirical, and applied contributors to “Oceanographic History: The Pacific and Beyond” undertake the interdisciplinary task of telling the story of oceanography’s past, drawing on diverse methodologies. Oceanography, scientific discipline concerned with all aspects of the world’s oceans and seas, including their physical and chemical properties, their origin and geologic framework, and the life forms that inhabit the marine environment.

    The book covers just physical oceanography, so if you're interested in marine ecology, chemical oceanography, or marine geology, you'd best look elsewhere. Overall, it's fascinating to learn how small differences in salinity, temperature, and density drive so much of the dynamics of the Earth's oceans.4/5.

Evolution of Physical Oceanography was created to mark the career of Henry M. Stommel, the leading physical oceanographer of the 20th Century and a longtime MIT faculty member. The authors of the different chapters were asked to describe the evolution of their subject over the history of physical oceanography, and to provide a survey of the state-of-the-art of their subject as of Evolution of Physical Oceanography by Bruce A.

Thus, most of these chapters differ from conventional review articles both in their histor-ical sweep and in their depth of coverage. The book looks both backward and forward in time. A substantial fraction of physical oceanography isFile Size: KB.

The influence of Henry Stommel on the development of physical oceanography over the past four decades has been immense. Although he is best known as a major generator of modern concepts of ocean circulation, his research interests have encompassed much of physical oceanography, and the colleagues he influenced have explored every ocean, literally and : Hardcover.

This book is written for upper-division undergraduates and new graduate studentsin meteorology, ocean engineering, and oceanography. Topics covered includes: Voyage of Discovery, The Physical Setting, Atmospheric Influences, The Oceanic Heat Budget, Temperature, Salinity, and Density, The Equations of Motion, Equations of Motion With Viscosity, Geostrophic Currents, Wind Driven Ocean.
