Presents theory and physical concepts necessary to follow exciting new developments in the fields of rotating fluids and vorticity. Includes nine chapters devoted to specific engineering and earth science applications, such as centrifuges, wings,turbomachinery, liquids in spacecraft, river meandering, and atmospheric and oceanic flows. Useful in many engineering and science curricula and for practising engineers and scientists in a wide variety of industrial and research settings.
