Atmosphere-ocean dynamics / Adrian E. Gill.

Title: Atmosphere-ocean dynamics / Adrian E. Gill.
Author(s): Gill, Adrian E.
Date: 1982.
Publisher: London: Academic Press
Abstract: Graduate/undergraduate text adopting systematic unifying approach to dynamics of ocean and atmosphere. Emphasizes larger-scale motions, from few kilometres to global scale. Covers: how ocean-atmosphere system is driven; transfer of properties between atmosphere and ocean; properties of fluid at rest; equations of motion, adjustment under gravity and effects of density-stratification and rotation; gravity waves in rotating fluid; forced motion and effects of side boundaries; instabilities, fronts and general circulation. Devotes individual chapters to tropics and mid-latitudes. Appendices cover properties of seawater and moist air.
