Editorial Reviews

"May this new book help to give new impulse to this exciting technique, which should play a key role in forthcoming ocean-climate programs observing programs within the context of the Climate Variability and Predictability Study (CLIVAR) and the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS)." Friedrich Schott, Science
