The Physical Oceanography of the Arctic Mediterranean Sea: Exploration, Observations, Interpretations describes circulation and processes in the Arctic Mediterranean Sea (AMS), how our present knowledge has come about, likely changes in the AMS, and its role in a future, possibly warmer global climate. Authored by a world-renowned leader in the field, this book explores these questions with a look to the future for this globally important sea. It is a must-read for researchers and students in the fields of oceanography and climate science.
  • Relates observed features to active processes and provides sufficient background information to understand theoretical explanations
  • Presents the Arctic Mediterranean Sea in the context of global ocean circulation and climate
  • Provides a modern, comprehensive and coherent treatment of Arctic (and subarctic) physical oceanography
