Today, the problem of ocean turbulence experiences so many different challenges since it is still in the process of development, being a relatively new study. The author of the present title made an effort to provide readers with the detailed and easily understandable description of the fundamental dynamic processes controlling the turbulence distribution as well as the spread of the kinetic energy.

In addition, the major effects that the subject dissipation has on dispersion of the heat and salinity of the ocean water, and many other effects. All of the processes dealt with by the author have been supplemented with the experiments conducted in the lab environment, as well as by the field observations.

All of these eventually resulted in a perfect reference source to be used by the seniors and graduates; however, the information contained herein will be valuable to the researchers who can use the volume for the general overview of the subject. Considering the way in which the material is presented, we could recommend the publication even to the broad readership, i.e. one does not have to be the professional in this field to be able to understand the content clearly and benefit from reading.
