Lecture Notes in Oceanography

PDF | 123 Pages | English
This lecture note helps students develop an understanding of the unifying principles and processes which are critical in understanding both the evolution and behaviour of the planet Earth, with a particular focus on aspects relating to the atmosphere and the ocean. Topics covered includes: The place of physical oceanography in science, Properties of seawater, The Global Oceanic Heat Budget , Distribution of temperature and salinity with depth; the density stratification, Aspects of Geophysical Fluid Dynamics, Thermohaline processes; water mass formation; the seasonal thermocline, The ocean and climate , Waves , Long Waves, Oceanographic instrumentation.

 
Wave Motion in the Ocean and the Atmosphere

Online | NA Pages | English
This lecture note provides an introduction to basic ideas of geophysical wave motion in rotating, stratified, and rotating-stratified fluids. Subject begins with general wave concepts of phase and group velocity. It also covers the dynamics and kinematics of gravity waves with a focus on dispersion, energy flux, initial value problems, etc.

Evolution of Physical Oceanography

PDF | 623 Pages | English
This is a free, online textbook that is organized in Four Parts, with the ability to download pdf files of each chapter.  According to the authors, "The technical section of this book is divided into four general categories: General Ocean Circulation (chapters 1-7); Physical Processes in Oceanography (chapters 8-13); Techniques of Investigation (chapters 14-16); Ocean and Atmosphere (chapters 17-18). Within each of these categories will be found several chapters, each of which discusses a broad aspect of physical oceanography or its relationship to an allied field.

 
Topics in Oceanography

Online | NA Pages | English
Oceanography is the par excellence interdisciplinary science thanks to its peculiar setting within a fluid environment that makes connections extremely efficient. The oceans connections are well mirrored in the chapters of this book that share a quite explicit multidisciplinary and multi-environmental character. The book provides chapters on very different topics under very different settings, some with a focused angle, others with a broader approach, yet all sharing the idea that we need to understand the small pieces in order to put together the big picture for a much larger mechanism, the functioning of the ocean as a whole

 
Introduction to Oceanography

PDF | 271 Pages | English
This is a 3 credit class, which involves a total of 45 contact hours. These will include both lectures and field activities. The material of the class is divided into 5 sections: geological oceanography, chemical oceanography, physical oceanography, biological oceanography, and humans & the oceans. Besides quizzes and exams on material covered in class, you will also be evaluated on papers and presentations that will allow you to further your knowledge of one given topic related to oceanography, and conduct your own independent research project.

 
Lecture Notes in Oceanography

PDF | 123 Pages | English
These notes represent the topic content for physical oceanography. In addition, two introductory lectures place the atmospheric and oceanographic aspects of the topic in the context of the exact sciences

 
Introduction to Physical Oceanography Lisa Beal

Online | NA Pages | English
Application of the laws of physics to the study of the properties and circulation of the world’s oceans. Physical description of the sea; physical properties of sea water; forcing and the equations of motion; boundary processes; waves; thermohaline circulation; variability; instrumentation and observation.  Prerequisites: the mathematics and physics required for admission to the graduate curriculum at RSMAS, or consent of the instructor. It will be assumed that you know Newton’s 3 Laws, linear and angular momentum conservation, derivatives and partial derivatives, integrals, scalars and vectors, gradient, divergence, and curl.
