Record #165707:

The oceans and climate / Grant Bigg.

Title: The oceans and climate / Grant Bigg.
Author(s): Bigg, Grant.
Date: 2003.
Publisher: Cambridge: Cambridge University Press
Abstract: Undergraduate textbook covering all aspects (physical, chemical, biochemical) of interactions between atmosphere and oceans. Includes ice-ocean interaction in section on Quaternary glaciation and elsewhere. Focuses particularly on role of oceans in relation to climatic change. Modelling has greater prominence in new edition. New sections reflect importance of abrupt climate change triggered by freshwater changes to ocean surface and interaction between ocean's thermohaline circulation and climate on millenial timescales. Incorporates views on ocean's role in climate change expressed by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change since first edition.
