From the Publisher"Bühler's well-organized textbook is excellent in all the most important ways. The author is well known in the field for applications of the GLM formulation to real-world problems, and his book will likely become the authoritative resource on the subject. Waves and Mean Flows presents its readers with a clearly written text that is comfortable to read. As a logically laid-out, internally consistent, and self-contained work, it will be useful both as a textbook and as a handy reference for researchers."
Steve K. Lamoreaux, Yale University for Physics Today
"For anyone wishing to work seriously with the GLM approach, Waves and Mean Flows is indispensable."
"...this text is, to my knowledge, the best existing source for a comprehensive introduction to the GLM theory. Many important concepts, such as the development of Lagrangian-mean divergence in divergence-free Eulerian flows, are explained with clarity, often through the use of elegant examples. ... Its intentionally provocative deviation from habitual Eulerian-mean thinking is certain to prove valuable and stimulating, and will no doubt have the desired long-term mean effect of raising the scientific community’s conceptual center of gravity in this important field of inquiry."
Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society
"The book is written in a very unpretentious, direct style. This book is an excellent investment for atmospheric and oceanic dynamicists and many environmental and mechanical engineers. Applied mathematicians who want to understand geophysical waves deeply and/or ray tracing will like this book, too."
