Physical Oceanography
Text Book and Reserved Books Information for Spring 2004


I will use class notes instead of a textbook. The readily available texts are now many years out of date, and the notes provide much more up-to-date information.

  • A new and updated set of class notes is available from Kinko's at 509 University, in College Station. Cost is $17 including tax for the Spring 2004 semester.
  • I will put one copy in the Working Collection in Oceanography and Meteorology Building, Room 1103.

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 Please Note: This version is three years out of date, and I have not had time to revise the web pages.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 since it was posted. The latest version is the PDF version above.
