    Reviews & endorsements

    "In summary, I found this book very informative and easy to read. As both a coastal scientist and a university teacher, I found its style excellent. I am sure this book will have strong appeal as a text for a number of undergraduate disciplinary programs." Oceanography, Nick Harvey, Professor and head, Geography and Environmental Studies, The University of Adelaide, South Australia

    "The book is well written, extremely topical, and appropriate for nonmathematical scientists.... Undoubtedly, it will be useful for students and postgraduates in a broad range of disciplines. It would also be helpful for many specialists working in adjecent disciplines."
    Alexander Rabinovich, Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society
