Description

Marine Physics guides different disciplines regarding the study of the sea and provides basic understanding of the fundamental theories and premises of the other disciplines. This book is comprised of eight chapters, beginning with some concepts regarding movement of the sea, such as the density currents, diffusion processes, and wind currents in deep water. These occurrences in the sea are thoroughly discussed and explained through theories and concepts behind them. The next three chapters deal more closely on the broad topic of oceanography. Some of the topics include qualitative physical characteristics, waves in both deep and shallow water, and the tides. The last two chapters discuss optics and acoustics as they are applied in the study of marine science.
This book aims to be of use to students in various disciplines involved in not just marine science, but also in engineering, biology, and physics.
