    Reviews & endorsements

    'Herman Medwin died in January 2006 at the age of 85. This book acts magnificently as a memorial to him … The ascribed multiple authorship of this volume … stands as a telling testament to this influence … it is clearly written, and each chapter is provided with a range of problems which may be used to assess how well the presented material has been assimilated … a useful introduction to non-linear effects such as parametric generation, acoustic streaming and the characteristics of explosive sources … This is a magnificent book, a worthy occupant of shelf space in any oceanographic library.' The Magazine of the Challenger Society for Marine Science
