[Henk A Dijkstra] -- "This graduate and research-level book applies the methodology of dynamical systems theory to investigate the physics of the global ocean circulation, e.g.
the dynamics of the Gulf Stream separation. “‘Dynamical Oceanography’ is a textbook that introduces the reader to the subject by using a mathematically oriented approach that integrates elements of physical oceanography and geophysical fluid dynamics.
Hence, the book is very attractive for students and researchers with a background in mathematics and physics and with an interest in 3/5(1).
The topics of smoothing and filtering, commonly referred to as “data assimilation” in the oceanographic and meteorological literature, have attracted a great deal of attention of late. This emphasis on the combination of statistical with dynamical methods, relatively new to oceanography, arises.

Physical oceanography is the study of physical conditions and physical processes within the ocean, especially the motions and physical properties of ocean waters. Physical oceanography is one of several sub-domains into which oceanography is divided.
Others include biological, chemical and geological oceanography. Physical oceanography may be subdivided into descriptive and dynamical.

Physical Oceanography is the study of physical properties and dynamics of the ocean. The primary interests are the interaction of the ocean with the atmosphere, the oceanic heat budget, water mass formation, currents, and coastal dynamics.
Physical Oceanography is considered by many to be a subdiscipline of geophysics. Nonlinear optics (NLO) is the branch of optics that describes the behaviour of light in nonlinear media, that is, media in which the polarization density P responds non-linearly to the electric field E of the light.
The non-linearity is typically observed only at very high light intensities (values of atomic electric fields, typically 10 8 V/m) such as those provided by lasers. Nonlinear and Surface Waves. Climate, Atmospheric Science & Physical Oceanography (CASPO) Marine Physical Laboratory (MPL) Contact Us.
