This text is intended to be a general but comprehensive overview on physical phenomena associated with the marine environment. The author provides his own perspective on this field from his particular experiences and training.

The first three chapters provide basic background on the theory of characteristics and shock waves. The main content is an entirely new presentation. It is on water waves, with special emphasis on old and new results for waves on a sloping beach.
The wave is a physical phenomenon that is found in a variety of contexts. The purpose of this text is to describe the kinematics of waves, i.e., to provide tools for describing the form and motion of all waves irrespective of their mechanisms.

The subjects covered vary from speech and hearing research to flow control and active control systems, from bubble oscillations to cavitation structures, from ordering phenomena in liquids and solids to complex dynamics of chaotic nonlinear systems.
