Ocean Mixing: Drivers, Mechanisms and Impacts contains a broad perspective on the causes of ocean mixing, with a perspective on the implications, in terms of governing ocean circulation, climate, biogeochemistry and the marine ecosystem. Included in this edited volume are key future questions relating to ocean mixing, and emerging ideas/activities to address them, including innovative technology developments and advances in methodology.Ocean Mixing is a key reference for those entering the field, and for those seeking a comprehensive overview of how the key current issues are being addressed, and the priorities for future research. It will be used by those seeking specific information on sub-topics (with comprehensive referencing enabling more detailed follow-ups), as well as those seeking a broad synopsis of current understanding. It will be useful ammunition for those seeking funding for specific future research campaigns, by being an authoritative source concerning key scientific goals in the short, medium and long terms. It will contain bespoke and informative graphics that can be used in teaching to convey complex concepts and phenomena in easily-accessible ways.
- Presents a coherent overview of state-of-the-art research concerning ocean mixing
- Provides an in-depth discussion of how ocean mixing impacts all scales of the planetary system
- Includes elucidation of the grand challenges in ocean mixing, and how they might be addressed

Professor Mike Meredith is an oceanographer and Science Leader at the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) in Cambridge, UK. He is head of the Polar Oceans team at BAS, which has research foci on determining the role of the polar oceans on global climate, the ice sheets, and the interdisciplinary ocean system. He holds an honorary Chair at UHI, is a fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society, and a NERC Individual Merit Promotion (Band 3) scientist. He has published over 200 research papers in international journals, with an h-index in excess of 50. He led the design and delivery of the multi-institute, £10M ORCHESTRA programme, which is unravelling the role of the Southern Ocean in controlling global climate. He is currently Coordinating Lead Author for the IPCC Special Report on Oceans and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate. In 2018, Mike was awarded the Tinker-Muse Prize for Science and Policy in Antarctica, in recognition of his contributions to the study of the Southern Ocean and its global impacts. He was also awarded the 2018 Challenger Medal, for exceptional contributions to Marine Science.

Alberto Naveira Garabato is a Professor of Physical Oceanography at the University of Southampton, and Director of the NEXUSS Centre of Doctoral Training in the Smart and Autonomous Observation of the Environment. Alberto is interested in the processes shaping the ocean circulation and its role in the global climate system and biogeochemical cycles. He leads a research group focusing on the development and application of diverse observational technologies and analytical techniques to address problems in ocean dynamics across all scales. He has authored papers in a range of areas of ocean circulation, marine biogeochemical cycling, and the role of the polar oceans in climatic change. Alberto’s research has been recognized by several awards, including the EGU Outstanding Young Scientist Award (2008), a Philip Leverhulme Prize (2010) and a Wolfson Research Merit Award (2014).
