'Descriptive Physical Oceanography: An Introduction' 5th edition provides an introduction to descriptive (synoptic) physical oceanography for science undergraduates and early graduate students. There has been an updating of topics such as the heat budget, instruments (particularly the use of satellites), a complete revision of the material on equatorial oceanography, sea-ice physics and distribution and El Nino and information has been added on thermohaline circulation, mixing nad coral reef oceanography.In Section 6.544 will be given more information on the volumes of ocean water within various ranges of temperature and ... i.e. the value of a property may be much the same across the ocean in the east-west direction but may change rapidly in ... to the position of an ocean area in terms of its north-south position even when we do not need to specify the latitude ... Also, along the eastern boundaries of the oceans low surface temperatures often occur due to upwelling of subsurface coolanbsp;...
