This textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate students
presents a multidisciplinary approach to understanding ocean
circulation and how it drives and controls marine biogeochemistry
and biological productivity at a global scale. Background chapters
on ocean physics, chemistry and biology provide students with the
tools to examine the range of large-scale physical and dynamic
phenomena that control the ocean carbon cycle and its interaction
with the atmosphere. Throughout the text observational data is
integrated with basic physical theory to address cutting-edge
research questions in ocean biogeochemistry. Simple theoretical
models, data plots and schematic illustrations summarise key
results and connect the physical theory to real observations.
Advanced mathematics is provided in boxes and appendices where it
can be drawn on to assist with the worked examples and homework
exercises available online. Further reading lists for each chapter
and a comprehensive glossary provide students and instructors with
a complete learning package.
