Introduction to Geophysical Fluid Dynamics: Physical and Numerical Aspects
Introduction to Geophysical Fluid Dynamics provides an introductory-level exploration of geophysical fluid dynamics (GFD), the principles governing air and water flows on large terrestrial scales. Physical principles are illustrated with the aid of the simplest existing models, and the computer methods are shown in juxtaposition with the equations to which they apply. It explores contemporary topics of climate dynamics and equatorial dynamics, including the Greenhouse Effect, global warming, and the El Nino Southern Oscillation.

Perfect GFD book for beginner or advanced user! The Matlab functions associated allow us to quickly visualize and "play" with the physical principles developed throughout the book. A must have for students, instructors, or anyone interested in understanding Geophysical fluid Dynamics
Book much appreciated for beginners and experts in GFD and numerics
