Transport and Mixing in Geophysical Flows

Overview

Transports in fluids can be approached from two complementary perspectives. In the Eulerian view of mixing, the focus is on the concentration field. In the Langrangian view, fluid parcels are followed around as they move with the flow, experiencing chaotic or shastic motion. This book examines both pictures, presenting a number of theoretical and experimental lectures on various aspects of transport and mixing of active and passive particles in geophysical flows.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"The book contains original research articles by many of the world’s leading researchers in geophysical fluid dynamics. … I have read this book with great interest and pleasure. The style of presentation is clear and readable. … this book will definitely help those who know the subject and who are interested in theoretical approaches, with a direct preference for the geophysical fluid dynamics. Graduate students of geophysics and applied mathematics interested in environmental fluid mechanics should also reference it." (Andrzej Icha, Pure and Applied Geophysics, Vol. 166, 2009)
