Marine Turbulence by Helmut Z. Baumert

Book Description

This 2005 book gives a comprehensive overview of measurement techniques and theories for marine turbulence and mixing processes. It describes the processes which 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 centrally important for regional to global ecosystem dynamics. The publication also contains source codes of turbulence models and models of the upper-ocean mixing layer (COHERENS and GOTM), and observational data sets of turbulence characteristics or corresponding proxies of waters from all over the world. These can be found at www.cambridge.org/9780521153720. Written by a team of 53 world-leading experts, it represents a rich source of data and methods for students and scientists in oceanography, hydrology, limnology, and meteorology, as well as marine, naval and civil engineers.

Author Biography - Helmut Z. Baumert

Helmut Baumert (Dipl.-Phys., PhD and DSc at the Technical University of Dresden) started his work on turbulence as a Research Fellow in Siberia, with special emphasis on hydrophysico-ecological coupling in natural waters. He is author/co-author of 85 publications. As a Professor of Physical Oceanography and Theoretical Physics he taught at University of Oldenburg, Germany. He supervised more than 15 PhD theses; acts as a reviewer for journals such as Nature, Journal of Physical Oceanography and Journal of Geophysical Research, and for scientific bodies like NSF (USA), NERC (UK) and CFCAS (Canada). John Simpson (BA, Oxon, PhD and DSc in Liverpool) has made significant contributions to the study of buoyancy, tidal stirring and mixing fronts as well as to turbulent energy dissipation and vertical mixing in shelf seas and estuaries. He is author or co-author of 120 scientific papers, has served as a member of the UK Natural Environment Council, as Chairman of the NERC North Sea Community Project and the Shelf Edge component of the LOIS Programme, as Head of the School of Ocean Sciences at the University of Wales, Bangor, and as President of the Challenger Society for Marine Science. He has undertaken reviews of marine science in Canada, Sweden and Denmark and serves as a member of the editorial boards of four international journals. Jurgen Sundermann (Dipl.- Math., PhD and DSc) was Assistant Professor at University of Hannover and later Full Professor at University of Hamburg where he directed the Institute of Oceanography and later the Center of Marine and Climate Research. He is a member of the Polish Academy of Sciences, and editor of the books Oceanography, Landoldt-Bornstein Series, and Circulation and Contaminant Fluxes in the North Sea.
