About this book

This book introduces the reader to advanced methods used in the computer-based modelling of fluid processes. This includes nonhydrostatic processes such as breaking internal waves and density-driven convection, but the model code is also used to simulate an El-Niño event! The book contains 25 practical exercises, using freely available Open-Source software suites, which are widely used by the scientific community. In this book, the art of hydrodynamic modelling is made available and transparent to a wider readership. An attractive byproduct of the book is that results are animations rather than still images. Model codes and animation scripts for all exercises are supplied on a website. The reader can adopt model codes for own independent studies

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Advanced Ocean Modelling is a combination of a textbook and a workbook including 25 computer-based exercises, written in Fortran 95. … The book is clearly written in an interesting manner, and is addressed to anyone wanting to learn what it takes to solve problems in ocean dynamics and needs to find effective methods to apply to them. This is an accessible textbook for undergraduate and graduate students in marine physics, physical oceanography and ocean modelling. Experienced researchers will welcome this book as a stimulating source.”­­­ (Andrzej Icha, Pure and Applied Geophysics, Vol. 168, 2011)
