This 2006 book provides a detailed and comprehensive analytical development of the Lagrangian formulation of fluid dynamics. The emergence of observing systems such as acoustically-tracked floats in the deep ocean, and surface drifters navigating by satellite has seen renewed interest in Lagrangian fluid dynamics. Starting from the foundations of elementary kinematics and assuming some familiarity of Eulerian fluid dynamics, this book reviews the classical and new exact solutions of the Lagrangian framework, and then addresses the general solvability of the resulting general equations of motion. A unified account of turbulent diffusion and dispersion is offered, with applications among others to plankton patchiness in the ocean. • Author: Andrew Bennett • ISBN:9780521853101 • Format:Hardcover • Publication Date:2006-09-03
