Orange and green paper card covers have a bent front top corner, some corner wear elsewhere, interior obviously read but clean and nice. Good copy. The increasing exploitation of coastal waters as well as the increasing discharge of domestic and industrial effluents into them underscore the need for a quantitative understanding of the basic circulation of such waters and for a predictive capability for major contingencies likely to occur. This volume considers an extensive complex of waters contained between Vancouver Island and the mainland coasts of British Columbia and the State of Washington, the site of two major ports and a region of intense activity and development. It presents the reader with a broad overview ranging from tidal and estuarine circulation, including the dynamical simulation of a major river plume and influences propagating in from the open boundaries, to the effects of storm surges and tsunamis. ; Xv + 471 pp. References, indexes.
