The current release of the work by Lynne Talley was published to provide some introduction to this subject for graduate/undergraduate-level students. The emphasis has been made by the author one the large scale oceanography, mainly in observations; the content of this volume also includes several topics brought from wave oceanography and also coastal oceanography.

The list of topics covered within this title includes seawater properties, salt and heat budgets, applied instruments, various methods of data analysis, introductory dynamics, variability of the climate as applied to each ocean and global ocean in general, plus brief general introductions to the coastal oceanography, waves and physical setting. The body of the document has been expanded to include the descriptions of the ocean basin and to emphasize the dynamical context, several completely new chapters have been added dealing with the ocean dynamics and circulation.

Moreover, this revised edition of the title contains additional supplemental changes and numerous useful practical exercises included to analyze a global ocean data by means of the Java Ocean Atlas. Definitely recommended title for all professionals/enthusiasts of marine science and oceanography.
