This research monograph deals with the study of wave phenomena caused by winds in the world's oceans. Particular attention is paid to modern developments that take into account the propagation of ocean waves at global distances and their interaction with the sea bottom, ocean currents and the ice cover. With this book the author provides the first methodical presentation of the generation, evolution and propagation of wind-induced ocean waves.
Mathematical Applications in Earth Sciences This is the first monographical account on wind-wave coupling that extends current models to a non-uniform ocean. At the same time the book represents a synthesis of "western" and "eastern" theoretical work on t
