Notable advances of the last quarter-century have deepened our
appreciation of the three-dimensional nature of the ocean's
large-scale circulation. This circulation has important
implications for ocean chemistry and biology, atmospheric science,
and climate. Ocean Circulation in Three Dimensions surveys both
observations and theories of the time-mean circulation, enabling
readers to see the relevance and limitations of leading theories,
as well as the patterns linking the behavior of different oceans.
The book covers "classical" topics of horizontal circulation, and
expands them to include shallow wind-driven overturning, the deep
global "conveyer belt", high latitudes, the role of eddies, and the
ocean's role in heat transport. Solutions to exercises are
available online for instructor use. This textbook is ideal for
students of physical oceanography, chemical oceanography and
climate. It is also suitable for readers from related fields as it
includes a summary of introductory topics.
