Summary "Marine Turbulence: Theories, Observations and Models is the first book to give a comprehensive overview of measurement techniques and theories for marine turbulence and mixing processes. it describes the processes that control the mixing of greenhouse gases, nutrients, trace elements and hazardous substances in our oceans and shelf seas from local to planetary scales. These processes buffer climate changes and are of vital importance for regional and global ecosystem dynamics." "Marine Turbulence represents a rich source of data and methods for students and professionals working on environmental and climate problems. Specifically, it will be valuable for students and scientists in oceanography, hydrology, limnology and meteorology as well as marine, naval and civil engineers."--BOOK JACKET
