This volume collects numerous recent advances in the study of stratified fluids. It includes analytical and experimental work from a wide range of fields, including meteorology, limnology, oceanography, and the study of estuarine processes. It also includes fundamental research on stratified and rotating fluid dynamics. A compendium of current work, the book is an ideal starting point for future research.
