Beschreibungen


This book presents a global hydrographic description of the thermohaline circulation, an introduction to the theoretical aspects of this phenomenon, and observational evidence for the theory. The hydrographic description and the observational evidence are based on data sources available via internet, mainly from the World Oceanographic Experiment (WOCE). The book also offers an introduction to hydrographic analysis and interpretation.

The ocean basins.- Pressure, temperature, salinity, and some thermohaline dynamics.- Water mass and tracer analysis of the deep flow in the Atlantic Ocean.- The deep flow in the Southern, Indian, and Pacific oceans.- The upper branch of the THC.- Formation and descent of water masses.- Dynamics of the THC.- Deep upwelling and mixing.- Energetics of the THC.- Simple models, boundary conditions, and feedbacks.- The THC and different climates.
 Dr. Hendrik van Aken has been an observational oceanographer for over 25 years. He mainly deals with regional oceanography. He headed the Dutch contribution ot the WOCE Hydrographic Program (WHP), and is presently active in CLIVAR projects. Dr. Van Aken has done extensive research in the fields of climate hydrographic variability and aspects of the global thermohaline  circulation.
First book to specifically and thoroughly describe thermohaline circulation, a crucial element in the climate system
