BOOK REVIEW • Atmosphere-Ocean Interactions (Volume 1)

Kristina B. Katsaros
First Paragraph

This book is a valuable review of the field of atmosphere-ocean interactions, particularly as it relates to tropical cyclones and other marine storm systems. It presents a survey of several key mechanisms that are important for marine storms and their development. The book has nine chapters covering three topical areas including: basic considerations of marine storms regarding the interface, atmosphere, and the ocean (chapters 1-3); coupled models, including oceanwave models (chapters 4-6); and, in chapters 7-9, issues of longer time scales and climate change in relation to marine storms.
