Overview

Written in a clear and simple style, this textbook for a first course on fluid mechanics gives equal emphasis to both geophysical and engineering fluid mechanics. For physicists, it contains chapters on geophysical fluid mechanics and gravity waves, fo rengineers, it has chapters on aerodynamics and compressible flow. Of common interest are chapters on governing equations, boundary layers, instability, and turbulence. This book also presents topics of recent interest, such as deterministic chaos and double-diffusive instability.
