BOOK REVIEW • Baroclinic Tides: Theoretical Modeling and Observational Evidence

Peter Müller
First Paragraph

This is a timely book. Baroclinic tides have emerged at the forefront of research in physical oceanography as they might provide a link between large-scale circulation and small-scale mixing. This book summarizes the theories, numerical models, and observations that form the basis of our current understanding of the generation and evolution of baroclinic tides. It is required reading for anyone who wants to get involved in this exciting field of research.
