Description

Consists of refereed papers by the world's leading authorities on tidal hydrodynamics. Its forty-four papers, including nine review papers, cover all aspects of the subject and present, for the first time in one place, state of the art treatments of recent advances including tidal detection from satellite altimetry, global tide modeling, nonlinear tidal interactions and internal tidal phenomena.
