The phenomena treated in this book all depend on the action of
gravity on small density differences in a non-rotating fluid. The
author gives a connected account of the various motions which can
be driven or influenced by buoyancy forces in a stratified fluid,
including internal waves, turbulent shear flows and buoyant
convection. This excellent introduction to a rapidly developing
field, first published in 1973, can be used as the basis of
graduate courses in university departments of meteorology,
oceanography and various branches of engineering. This edition is
reprinted with corrections, and extra references have been added to
allow readers to bring themselves up to date on specific topics.
Professor Turner is a physicist with a special interest in
laboratory modelling of small-scale geophysical processes. An
important feature is the superb illustration of the text with many
fine photographs of laboratory experiments and natural phenomena.
