Air-Ice-Ocean Interaction: Turbulent Ocean Boundary Layer Exchange Processes



This is a well-written book about the upper boundary layer of the ice-covered ocean. It combines a presentation of the physics and associated equations governing the structure of and mixing within the ice-ocean boundary layer (IOBL) with illustrative examples from fi eldwork carried out during the author's career. The examples and good graphics do much to solidify the understanding the reader develops about these matters. Together with short summary glossaries of key quantities and parameters at the end of many chapters, the author's approach of weaving theory and observations together has resulted in an excellent text.
