The first edition has been thoroughly revised and updated and the new work includes reference to the Practical Salinity Scalethe International Equation of State and the beta-spiral technique for calculating absolute currents from the density distribution. Dynamics of Marine Ecosystems: We hope that the presentation will serve to introduce the field to physicists intending to specialize in physical oceanography, to help oceanographers in other disciplines to learn enough about the physics of the ocean circulation to discuss with the physical oceanographer the aspects which they need to understand for their own work, and to give those in allied fields an appreciation of what the dynamical oceanographer is trying to do in contributing to our overall knowledge of the oceans.

The presentation involves the use of mathematics, as the essence of the dynamical approach is to deduce quantitative information about the move- ments of the ocean from mathematical statements of the basic principles of physics as they apply to the ocean waters.
Non-physical science students should not be disheartened by the mathematics because a course oceangoraphy much of this material has been taken for many years by biological science students, among others, at the University of British Columbia to complement a course in descriptive physical oceanography.

In addition the description of mixed-layer models has been updated and the chapters on Waves and on Tides have been substantially revised and enlarged, with emphasis on internal waves in the Waves chapter.

However, we assume that, when using it as a course text, an instructor will select what is appropriate for his class and will leave the remaining material for later reference or will consider presenting the material in a longer course.

Note that the latter two are each extensive fields and the present treatments, which are more descriptive than analytical, are mainly intended to acquaint the non-specialist reader with some of the essential features.

Sources of Information for the Estimation. Regrettably we cannot fulfill eBook-orders from other countries. For students with little calculus background we emphasize the physical assumptions made in setting up and in solving the equations, so that the limitations inherent will be oceanogralhy, and then we stress the interpretation of the solutions obtained.
Published Amsterdam ; Untroductory, Mass. In preparing the Second Edition we have clarified a number of minor points and have introduced the Practical Salinity Scale as the basic definition of this quantity and the International Equation of State as the most up-to- date statement of the relations between salinity, temperature, pressure and density for sea water.

While the text is self-contained readers are recommended to acquaint themselves with the general aspects of descriptive synoptic oceanography in order to be aware of the character of the ocean which the dynamical oceanographer is attempting to explain by referring to Pickard and Dynwmical ‘Descriptive Physical Oceanography’ 4th edition.
