"This book...draws from many sources and an extensive background and experience in modeling to provide an understandable teaching tool and guide for research."
From the Foreword by Kirk Bryan, --Andrzej Icha, Polish Academy of Science
"...a tremendous source and time saver to numerical modelers...unhesitatingly recommended to anyone interested in numerical modeling."
--Applied Mechanics Reviews, Volume 54 (1), Jan 2001
"When reading the book, because of my own area of research I had a particular interest in seeing how well it covered the different Arakawa grids, the three main types of deep-ocean model, the theory of tides, the representation of sea-ice, isopycnal mixing and open boundary conditions. I was pleased to find that they were all included, which must be a first, and that the sections concerned were often excellent introductions to the subjects."
