Introduction to Physical Oceanography
Text Book Information


I will use my own textbook. Other readily available texts are now many years out of date, and the new book provides much more up-to-date information.

The most recent edition is available from Kinko's at 509 University, in College Station. Cost is about $17.50, which is the cost of making the copy. I get no fees from the sale. I want to keep your cost low!

Introduction to Physical Oceanography Textbook

Text Book PDF Version

The book is also available in Adobe PDF format. Click on the header above to go to the pages. Please don't download and print these files at TAMU, it wastes resources, and is much more expensive than picking up a copy at Kinko's.

Text Book Web Version

A web-based version of an earlier edition of the book is also available. Click on the header above to go to the pages. Please Note: This version is three years out of date, and I have not had time to revise the web pages. I have made many revisions to the PDF version since the html version was posted. The latest version is the PDF version above.
