Apr 01, Kem White rated it really liked it. Though I’m not an oceanographer, I found Knauss’s introduction to the topic to be excellent.
The book covers just physical oceanography, so if you’re interested in marine ecology, chemical oceanography, or marine geology, you’d best look elsewhere. Overall, it’s fascinating to learn how small differences in salinity, temperature, and density drive so much of the dynamics of the Earth’s oceans.
Knauss does a good job with his derivations. The chapters discussing heat transfer, the conservation eq Though I’m not an knxuss, I found Knauss’s introductkon to the topic to be excellent.
The chapters discussing heat transfer, the conservation equations, and the equations of motion are excellent and illustrative. His discussion of waves is also good.
Owing to the complexity of the topics, his discussion of tides and sound is weakest. But anyone looking for an accessible and readable text on physical oceanography with many useful derivations can start here.
