Waves and flows are pervasive on and within Earth. This book presents a unified physical and mathematical approach to waves and flows in the atmosphere, oceans, rivers, volcanoes and the mantle, emphasizing the common physical principles and mathematical methods that apply to a variety of phenomena and disciplines. It is organized into seven parts: introductory material; kinematics, dynamics and rheology; waves in non-rotating fluids; waves in rotating fluids; non-rotating flows; rotating flows; and silicate flows. The chapters are supplemented by 47 'fundaments', containing knowledge that is fundamental to the material presented in the main text, organized into seven appendices: mathematics; dimensions and units; kinematics; dynamics; thermodynamics; waves; and flows. This book is an ideal reference for graduate students and researchers seeking an introduction to the mathematics of waves and flows in the Earth system, and will serve as a supplementary textbook for a number of courses in geophysical fluid dynamics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'At last! An applied mathematician who ably explains complicated geophysical phenomena thoroughly and transparently. Read, enjoy and learn! I have.' Paul Roberts, University of California, Los Angeles
'This is a feast for mathematically literate oceanographers and atmospheric scientists and a crucial reference for established mathematicians who may be embarking on research in one of these disciplines. The amazing array of types of wave and flow is systematically analyzed by presenting them as examples of fundamental principles with shared mathematical features. The comprehensive coverage of the subject ensures both immediate usefulness and an extended life as a reference work.' Frank Stacey, formerly of CSIRO
'... a unique book ... The holistic approach - of including the history, basic properties, relevance and modern usage of waves in the diverse areas of geophysics - makes the book an ideal companion for every geophysicist and a valuable resource in every library.' Ibrahim Eltayeb, Sultan Qaboos University, Oman
