From the reviews:
"This book holds a unique place in the genre of ocean-atmosphere interaction texts in that it has a distinct ocean bias, providing a fresh look at the problem from an ocean perspective. ... I would recommend this text for researchers interested in an overview of the dynamics of ocean-atmosphere interactions, or as a supplementary text for advanced students." (Yolande Serra, Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, March, 2005)
"Ocean-atmosphere interactions contains contributions from several Japanese authors covering ... the physical interactions of the ocean and the atmosphere ... . The modelling of mixing is usefully reviewed, followed by examples of ocean-profile observations interpreted in terms of water masses. ... In general, this book is nicely presented, well edited and adequately indexed." (C. J. Merchant, The Holocene, June, 2005)
This book presents an up-to-date analysis of ocean-atmosphere interaction. Well known experts examine diverse subjects such as ocean surface waves, air-sea exchange processes, ocean surface mixed layer, water-mass formation, as well as general circulation of the oceans, El Nino and Southern Oscillation (ENSO), and the deep-ocean circulation. Other areas described are basic dynamics, data analysis techniques, numerical modelling, and remote sensing.
This book is primarily aimed at graduate and senior undergraduate courses in the area of ocean-atmosphere research.
