Ocean Circulation and Climate: Observing and Modelling the Global Ocean
Gerold Siedler, John Church, John Gould, W. J. Gould
Academic Press, 2001 - Science - 715 pages
The book represents all the knowledge we currently have on ocean circulation.
It presents an up-to-date summary of the state of the science relating to the role of the oceans in the physical climate system.
The book is structured to guide the reader through the wide range of World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE) science in a consistent way. Cross-references between contributors have been added, and the book has a comprehensive index and unified reference list.
The book is simple to read, at the undergraduate level. It was written by the best scientists in the world who have collaborated to carry out years of experiments to better understand ocean circulation.
