This monograph creates a systematic interpretation of the theoretical and the most actual experimental aspects of the internal wave dynamics in the ocean. Firstly, it draws attention to the important physical effects from an oceanographical point of view which are presented in mathematical descriptions. Secondly, the book serves as an introduction to the range of modern ideas and the methods in the study of wave processes in dispersive media.
The book is meant for specialists in physics of the ocean, oceanography, geophysics, hydroacoustics.

`This is a book that oceanographers (and meteorologists) concerned with internal waves will like to have on their bookshelves. It would also be valuable as a text for a graduate course, or for researcher wishing to start in this field....I enjoyed reading this text, and will continue to use it.'
Journal of Geophysical, Astrophysical and Fluid Dynamics, 96:1 (2002)
'It is probable that here we may have a new classic in the field... Dynamics of Internal gravity Waves in the Ocean should be in the library of every fluid dynamicist and dynamical oceanographer or meteorologist.'
