Editorial Reviews

"This book provides deep insights to the underlying physical problems and elegant mathematical treatments of some important geophysical fluid dynamical problems. This is a textbook in geophysical fluid dynamics, written for first-year graduate students in physical oceanography as the authorstates in the preface. Also, it is certainly an excellent textbook for a graduate course in applied mathematics, and a good reference book for anyone who is interested in geophysical fluid dynamics."--Mathematical Reviews
