Data Analysis Methods in Physical Oceanography, Third Edition is a practical reference to established and modern data analysis techniques in earth and ocean sciences. Its five major sections address data acquisition and recording, data processing and presentation, statistical methods and error handling, analysis of spatial data fields, and time series analysis methods. The revised Third Edition updates the instrumentation used to collect and analyze physical oceanic data and adds new techniques including Kalman Filtering. Additionally, the sections covering spectral, wavelet, and harmonic analysis techniques are completely revised since these techniques have attracted significant attention over the past decade as more accurate and efficient data gathering and analysis methods. * Completely updated and revised to reflect new filtering techniques and major updating of the instrumentation used to collect and analyze data* Co-authored by scientists from academe and industry, both of whom have more than 30 years of experience in oceanographic research and field work* Significant revision of sections covering spectral, wavelet, and harmonic analysis techniques* Examples address typical data analysis problems yet provide the reader with formulaic "recipes for working with their own data* Significant expansion to 350 figures, illustrations, diagrams and photos.

"Data Analysis Methods in Physical Oceanography" is a practical reference guide to established and modern data analysis techniques in earth and ocean sciences. This second and revised edition is even more comprehensive with numerous updates, and an additional appendix on 'Convolution and Fourier transforms'. Intended for both students and established scientists, the five major chapters of the book cover data acquisition and recording, data processing and presentation, statistical methods and error handling, analysis of spatial data fields, and time series analysis methods. Chapter 5 on time series analysis is a book in itself, spanning a wide diversity of topics from stochastic processes and stationarity, coherence functions, Fourier analysis, tidal harmonic analysis, spectral and cross-spectral analysis, wavelet and other related methods for processing nonstationary data series, digital filters, and fractals. The seven appendices include unit conversions, approximation methods and nondimensional numbers used in geophysical fluid dynamics, presentations on convolution, statistical terminology, and distribution functions, and a number of important statistical tables. Twenty pages are devoted to references. The book features: an in-depth presentation of modern techniques for the analysis of temporal and spatial data sets collected in oceanography, geophysics, and other disciplines in earth and ocean sciences; a detailed overview of oceanographic instrumentation and sensors - old and new - used to collect oceanographic data; and, seven appendices especially applicable to earth and ocean sciences ranging from conversion of units, through statistical tables, to terminology and non-dimensional parameters. In praise of the first edition: 'This is a very practical guide to the various statistical analysis methods used for obtaining information from geophysical data, with particular reference to oceanography...The book provides both a text for advanced students of the geophysical sciences and a useful reference volume for researchers' - "Aslib Book Guide Volume 63, Number 9, 1998. '...This is an excellent book that I recommend highly and will definitely use for my own research and teaching' - EOS Transactions, D.A. Jay, 1999. '...In summary, this book is the most comprehensive and practical source of information on data analysis methods available to the physical oceanographer. The reader gets the benefit of extremely broad coverage and an excellent set of examples drawn from geographical observations' - "Oceanography, Volume 12, Number 3, A. Plueddemann, 1999. '..."Data Analysis Methods in Physical Oceanography" is highly recommended for a wide range of readers, from the relative novice to the experienced researcher. It would be appropriate for academic and special libraries' - "E-Streams, Volume 2, Number 8, P. Mofjelf, August 1999.

Completely revised and updated for its second edition, this volume belongs to the "Open University" series on oceanography. It is designed so that it can be read on its own or studied as part of the Open University third-level course, S330 Oceanography. The book begins by describing the characteristics of waves and tides, and their behaviour in shallow water. After outlining the sources of sediment supply to the oceans, some theoretical aspects of sediment movement and deposition by currents are considered. After looking at wave action in the littoral zone, the interplay of tidal currents, river flow and wave action in estuaries and deltas are explored. The final chapter provides an overview of shelf processes. This is a vital book for all oceanography undergraduate students worldwide. With easy to use question and answer format, it features full colour illustrations throughout. It is 35-40 per cent revised and extended from 1st edition.

This book is an outgrowth of research contributions and teaching experiences by all the authors in applying modern fluid mechanics to problems of pollutant transport and mixing in the water environment. It should be suitable for use in first year graduate level courses for engineering and science students, although more material is contained than can reasonably be taught in a one-year course, and most instructors will probably wish to cover only selected potions. The book should also be useful as a reference for practicing hydraulic and environmental engineers, as well as anyone involved in engineering studies for disposal of wastes into the environment. The practicing consulting or design engineer will find a thorough explanation of the fundamental processes, as well as many references to the current technical literature, the student should gain a deep enough understanding of basics to be able to read with understanding the future technical literature evolving in this evolving field.
