Introduction to the Physical and Biological Oceanography of Shelf Seas

Introduction to the Physical and Biological Oceanography of Shelf Seas

Written for undergraduate and graduate students, this book brings together the fundamental physics and biology of shelf sea processes. The book uses an integrated approach to oceanography that helps build a clear understanding of how shelf sea physics underpins key biological processes in these environmentally sensitive regions. Topics include physical forcing of the shelf seas, waves, turbulent motions and mixing, life in the shelf seas, and tidal mixing fronts.
