With an emphasis on both theory and experiment, this text describes the behaviour of homogeneous and density-stratified fluids over and around topography. In examining the similarities between the flow of a river over a barrier or weir and the flow of the atmosphere over a mountain range, this book presents a comprehensive synthesis of this topic in terms suitable for scientists, engineers, teachers and students of fluid dynamics. With this book, Professor Baines makes a notable contribution to the fields of fluid mechanics and geophysical fluid dynamics. The text will be a great asset to graduate and advanced undergraduate students, as well as to research professionals.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... this book represents a remarkable synthesis of a large body of work into a very readable and understandable form wtih ample references to the original research papers ... An excellent book ... it would be a very useful addition to the library of anyone working in wave theory or interested in the effects of topography on a fluid in areas ranging from oceanography to climate modelling.' Proceedings of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society
'There is no comparable book ... it is a worthy addition to the series of Cambridge Monographs on Mechanics, which will be of lasting usefulness for research workers on airflow over mountains and on currents over sea mounts.' P. G. Drazin, Journal of Fluid Mechanics
' ... seems destined to be a major reference for any worker interested in fluid flow over topography.' Richard Kerswell, Mathematics Today
'... this book represents a remarkable synthesis of a large body of work into a very readable and understandable form with ample reference to the orginal research papers ... an excellent book and is well produced by Cambridge University Press. It would be a very useful addition to the library of anyone working in wave theory or interested in the effects of topography on a fluid in areas ranging from oceanography to climate modelling.' N. F. Smyth, Proceedings of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society
'Professor Baines deserves praise for his well-informed overview of an important and active field.' A. D. D. Craik, The Mathematical Gazette
' ... highly valuable ... it will surely find its place on the bookshelf of many students, scientists, practitioners and academic teachers ...' H. Baumert, ZAMM 7S
