Understanding wind stress (drag) over the ocean is central to many facets of air-sea interaction, which in turn is vital for models of weather prediction and climate modelling. Wind Stress over the Ocean, first published in 2001, brings together thirty of the world's leading experts in air-sea interaction, under the auspices of the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research. Wind Stress over the Ocean provides a thorough re-examination of the physical processes that transfer momentum between the atmosphere and the ocean. As well as describing the established fundamentals, the book also explores active areas of research and controversy. The book will form a comprehensive guide and reference for researchers and graduate students in physical oceanography, meteorology, fluid dynamics and coastal engineering.
