Book Description

This volume contains papers from the 5 keynote lectures and 34 other contributed papers presented at the IUTAM Symposium on Advances in Mathematical Modelling of Atmosphere and Ocean Dynamics. The Symposium provided a forum where atmosphere and ocean scientists could present their latest research results and learn of progress and promising ideas in these allied disciplines. This was seen to be especially important in view of current efforts to model climate requiring interaction between atmosphere, ocean and land influences. This volume presents a valuable collection of papers, which highlight advances in modelling of atmosphere and ocean dynamics and should further advance interaction between theory and applications in atmosphere/ocean dynamics.

The volume will be a valuable reference for researchers involved in atmosphere, ocean and climate modelling.
