Physics of Lakes
The three volumes on the Physics of Lakes provide an encyclopedic overview of fundamental physical limnology. The first volume includes simple to complex model descriptions of how to develop understanding of the physical dynamics of lakes using only basic calculus. It presents classical physical laws of mass balance, momentum, angular momentum and energy at a beginner’s level. The second volume deals with barotropic and baroclinic waves in homogeneous and stratified lakes on the rotating Earth. It presents a classification of rotating shallow-water waves and describes Kelvin-type and Poincaré-type waves. The third volume is an ideal resource for graduate courses in physical oceanography and limnology. It provides in-depth information on theoretical and experimental (laboratory and field) techniques for investigating water and sediment motion in lakes.
