The book is written to meets the needs of post graduate students who opt special subjects of ocean and atmospheric sciences and oceanography, ocean engineering. These students have different back grieved, require self study like physical and basic dynamic ocean back ground and this aspect fully meets – First seven chapters are dealt with physical oceanography and the remainder deals with dynamics of ocean.
