Descriptive Physical Oceanography: An Introduction / Lynne D. Talley,

The sixth edition of Descriptive Physical Oceanography provides an introduction to descriptive physical oceanography for advanced undergraduates and graduate students. The emphasis is on large-scale oceanography, based mainly in observations, with some topics from waves and coastal oceanography also included. Topics include the physical properties of seawater, heat and salt budgets, instrumentation, data analysis methods, introductory dynamics, oceanography and climate variability of each of the oceans and of the global ocean, and brief introductions to the physical setting, waves, and coastal oceanography.

  • Expanded ocean basin descriptions, including ocean climate variability, emphasizing dynamical context.
  • New chapters on global ocean circulation and introductory ocean dynamics.
  • Companion Web site containing PowerPoint figures, supplemental chapters, and practical exercises for analyzing a global ocean data set using Java OceanAtlas.
