5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect resource for GFD 8 Jun 2001
By Michael G McGauley - Published on
As someone who just spent a year preparing for my graduate qualifying exams in atmospheric science, this book quickly became my favorite. It is a short book, but is packed with a lot of the fundamentals of GFD. The derivations are not too complicated, and the explanations do a very good job making sense of it all. I did notice, however, that there were several typos throughout the book, an incorrect equation and paths to the wrong figures, but they weren't big enough to distract me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for students or as a refresher 28 July 2007
By Kathleen A. Edwards - Published on
It is very helpful to have a book geared toward one's first introduction to GFD concepts, since there are several offerings at more advanced levels.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good introduction 2 Feb 2005
By Miguel Canals - Published on
It is an introductory text, yet still calls to draw upon a lot of mathematical skills. Much easier to go through than Pedlosky, and has many exercises at the end of each chapter. It is esentially a book for the reader more interested in the dynamics and applications like myself than on a rigorous theoretical treatment of GFD.

This book represents the first stage to anyone who wants to know how does the ocean (and atmosfear)work and make it easily. It's simply great!. Thanks Mr.Cushman!
