Introduction to Physical Oceanography
by Robert H. Stewart
Number of pages: 353
This book is written for upper-division undergraduates and new graduate students in meteorology, ocean engineering, and oceanography. Because these students have a diverse background, I have emphasized ideas and concepts more than mathematical derivations.

Observations of ocean temperature confirm that Earth is absorbing more energy from the sun than it is radiating to space as heat. The energy imbalance provides verification of the dominant role of the human-made greenhouse effect in climate change.

Author wrote this book to describe his experiences in conducting oceanographic experiments at sea. Working at sea is unlike any other endeavor. It has been the author's experience that most people are not properly prepared for their first cruise.

A survey of well-established oceanographic knowledge. The book provides a good deal of factual information, but above all it should be an aid to the beginner and specialist alike in the coordination of the various fields of oceanography.
