The dynamics of flows in density-stratified fluids has been and is still now a tremendous subject for medical enquiry. Such flows come up in lots of contexts, starting from commercial settings to the oceanic and atmospheric environments. it's the latter subject that is the point of interest of this booklet. either the sea and surroundings are characterized through the elemental vertical density stratification, and this option can have an effect on the dynamics on all scales starting from the micro-scale to the planetary scale. the purpose of this e-book is to supply a “state-of-the-art” account of stratified flows as they're proper to the sea and surroundings with a main concentrate on meso-scale phenomena; that's, on phenomena whose time and house scales are such that the density stratification is a dominant influence, in order that frictional and diffusive results at the one hand and the results of the earth’s rotation nevertheless may be considered as of much less value. This in flip ends up in an emphasis on inner waves.
