Written by a group of international experts in their fields, this book is a review of Lagrangian observation, analysis, and assimilation methods in physical and biological oceanography. In recent years a large number of floating and drifting research buoys have been deployed in the global oceans to study the state of the ocean and its variation in terms of water mass properties. Circulation and heat transport Lagrangian techniques are required to analyze the data from these buoys.
This multidisciplinary text contains observations, theory, numerical simulations, and analysis techniques. It presents new results on nonlinear analysis of Lagrangian dynamics, the prediction of particle trajectories, and Lagrangian stochastic models. It includes chapters on floats and drifters; Lagrangian-based analysis methods and models in marine biology: the statistics of particle trajectories in the ocean, numerical simulations and their relationship with classical turbulence results; and nonlinear Lagrangian-based theory for studying ocean transport and particle trajectories. The book contains historical information, up-to-date developments, and speculation on future developments in Lagrangian-based observations, analysis, and modeling of physical and biological systems.
This book will be of interest to researchers and graduate students looking for both practical applications and information on the theory of transport and dispersion in physical systems, biological modeling, and data assimilation.
