Download or read book entitled Lagrangian Transport in Geophysical Jets and Waves by author: Roger M. Samelson which was release on 24 November 2006 and published by Springer Science & Business Media with total page 150 pages . This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Written jointly by a specialist in geophysical fluid dynamics and an applied mathematician, this is the first accessible introduction to a new set of methods for analysing Lagrangian motion in geophysical flows. The book opens by establishing context and fundamental mathematical concepts and definitions, exploring simple cases of steady flow, and touching on important topics from the classical theory of Hamiltonian systems. Subsequent chapters examine the elements and methods of Lagrangian transport analysis in time-dependent flows. The concluding chapter offers a brief survey of rapidly evolving research in geophysical fluid dynamics that makes use of this new approach.
