Overview

This book gives a comprehensive presentation of the underlying oceanography and mathematics necessary to understand and develop a practical system of transmitters and receivers to interpret the behavior of the oceans. It covers the forward and inverse tomography problem, as well as numerous models for data interpretation. Also included is an epilogue outlining the history of tomographic techniques. It should prove a valuable resource to oceanographers and climatologists, as well as applied mathematicians and engineers interested in applications of fluid mechanics tools.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The developers of...ocean acoustic tomography have now written a wonderful monograph." G.Z. Forristall, Applied Mechanics Review

"...provides a comprehensive presentation of the oceanography and mathematics necessary to understand and develop a practical system of transmitters and receivers to interpret the behavior of the oceans." Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society

"May this new book help to give new impulse to this exciting technique, which should play a key role in forthcoming ocean-climate programs observing programs within the context of the Climate Variability and Predictability Study (CLIVAR) and the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS)." Friedrich Schott, Science
