Filling an immense hole within the geophysical literature at expert point, this monograph is the single up to date identify to supply a hyperlink among the Earth's rotation and its atmo- and hydrosphere, together with the ice lots.
beginning with the Earth's motions, the textual content is going directly to examine irregularities and the influence of atmospheric methods at the Earth's spin. Tides and seasons occupy the next sections prior to a dialogue of the Earth-ocean-atmosphere method and the mechanical motion of the ambience at the Earth's rotation. the complete is rounded off by means of an index of abbreviations and appendices with sections on similar physics for larger clarity, plus a finished bibliography for extra reading.
A needs to for geophysicists, oceanographers, glaciologists, climatologists and meteorologists alike.
