About the Course

The course provides a basic introduction to the principles that govern the flow in the sea at different scales from the smallest turbulent vortices to the large-scale circulation in the oceans.

A major emphasis is on describing various physical phenomena using a quantitative mathematical expression. The course deals with the following elements: Basic properties of a fluid including the driving equations for mass conservation, momentum and energy, coordinate systems and effects of Earth rotation and the derivation of simplified sets of equation describing large-scale oceanic flows.
