Ocean Engineering Mechanics is designed to give an introduction to water waves and wave-structure interactions for fixed and floating bodies. Linear and nonlinear regular waves are thoroughly discussed, and the methods of determining the averaged properties of random waves are presented. With this foundation in wave mechanics, applications to engineering situations in the coastal zone are then presented. This introduction to the coastal engineering aspects of wave mechanics includes an introduction to shore protection. Covered within are also the basics of wave-structure interactions for situations involving ridged structures, compliant structures, and floating bodies in regular and random seas. The final chapters deal with the various analytical methods available for the engineering analyses of wave-induced forces and motions of floating and compliant structures in regular and random seas. An introduction to the soil-structure interactions is also included. The book can be used for both introductory and advanced courses in ocean engineering mechanics.
Oceanography and Marine Biology preserves the basic elements of the physical, chemical, and geological aspects of the marine sciences, and merges those fundamentals into a broader framework of marine biology and ecology. Existing textbooks on oceanography or marine biology address the companion field only cursorily: very few pages in oceanography texts are devoted to marine biology, and vice versa. This new book overcomes that imbalance, bringing these disparate marine science text formats closer together, giving them more equal weight, and introducing more effectively the physical sciences by showing students with everyday examples how such concepts form the foundation upon which to build a better understanding of the marine environment in a changing world. Lecturer supplements will also be available.
Garrison (Orange Coast College) covers the fundamentals of oceanography, including the history of marine science, earth structure and plate tectonics, seawater chemistry, and ocean physics.

Appendixes feature information on measures and conversions, geological time, latitude and longitude, maps and charts, taxonomic classification of marine organisms, careers in marine science, and calculating tide-generating force. Included is a CD-ROM with on-line materials for each chapter and other resources. Annotation c. Book News, Inc. , Portland, OR (booknews. com)
