Climate and the Oceans

Availability: Ready to download

The oceans exert a vital moderating influence on the Earth's climate system. They provide inertia to the global climate, essentially acting as the pacemaker of climate variability and change, and they provide heat to high latitudes, keeping them habitable. Climate and the Oceans offers a short, self-contained introduction to the subject. This illustrated primer begins by b The oceans exert a vital moderating influence on the Earth's climate system. They provide inertia to the global climate, essentially acting as the pacemaker of climate variability and change, and they provide heat to high latitudes, keeping them habitable. Climate and the Oceans offers a short, self-contained introduction to the subject. This illustrated primer begins by briefly describing the world's climate system and ocean circulation and goes on to explain the important ways that the oceans influence climate. Topics covered include the oceans' effects on the seasons, heat transport between equator and pole, climate variability, and global warming. The book also features a glossary of terms, suggestions for further reading, and easy-to-follow mathematical treatments. Climate and the Oceans is the first place to turn to get the essential facts about this crucial aspect of the Earth's climate system. Ideal for students and nonspecialists alike, this primer offers the most concise and up-to-date overview of the subject available. The best primer on the oceans and climate Succinct and self-contained Accessible to students and nonspecialists Serves as a bridge to more advanced material

    Best book to start with study of oceans. Builds motivation to dive deeper in range of topics. Covers only Physical aspect of the oceans. But he has recommended books which cover other interesting aspects.

    Climate and the Oceans paints a remarkable holistic picture, and it is successful because Vallis manages to keep the discussion very clear and yet to express the (beautiful) complexity of ocean dynamics. It is a well written and enjoyable science read.

    This book provides a great introduction to oceanography. Little prior knowledge is required to be able to understand this book. Reader can decide whether he/she wants to dig into the mathematical background, provided in appendices at the end of each chapter.
