"Most well known structures in planetary atmospheres and the Earth's oceans are jets or fronts and vortices, interacting with each other on a wide range of scales. The transition from one state to another such as in unbalanced or adjustment flows invloves the generation of waves, as well as the interaction of coherent structures with these waves." "This book introduces and presents a fluid mechanics perspective, the dynamics of fronts, vortices and theil interaction with waves in geophysical flows. It provides a basic physical background for modeling on advanced topics such as spontaneous wave emission and wavemomentum transfer in geophysical flows." "Based on a set of lectures by leading specialists, this short course is tarteted at graduate students, researchers and engineers in geophysics and environmental fluid mechanics."--Jacket.
