Student problems and exercises are included at the end of each chapter atmospheric and oceanic fluid dynamics fundamentals and large scale circulation will be an invaluable graduate textbook on advanced courses in gfd meteorology atmospheric science and oceanography and an excellent review volume for researchers. Atmospheric and oceanic fluid dynamics geoffrey k vallis this book contains material on four general topics i fundamentals of gfd including equations of motion effects of stratification and rotation etc ii waves instabilities and turbulence including wave mean flow interaction and geostrophic turbulence iii the general circulation of the atmosphere theory of hadley and . Reviews of the first edition geoff vallis atmospheric and oceanic fluid dynamics will become the standard text on modern large scale atmosphere and ocean dynamicsit covers the field from the equations of motion to modern developments such as wave mean flow interaction theory and theories for the global scale circulations of atmospheres and oceans. Atmospheric and oceanic fluid mechanics fundamentals and large scale circulation 2nd edition is a book that as its title suggests goes from the basics of gfd to current theories of the general circulation of the atmosphere and ocean it is written to be useful both to students and practicing scientists. Fluid dynamics is fundamental to our understanding of the atmosphere and oceans although many of the same principles of fluid dynamics apply to both the atmosphere and oceans textbooks tend to concentrate on the atmosphere the ocean or the theory of geophysical fluid dynamics gfd
