Reviews

The author has written a well thought-out and readable text, suitable for specialists and non-specialists alike. It includes a particularly fascinating section on the tides and currents in a large estuary, using Chesapeake Bay as an example. Other important geographical areas such as the Gulf coasts of Arabia and Liverpool Bay are used for description of tidal variation with some surprising results. ... a fine book and well worthy of publication., Navigation News
