The Gulf Stream
‘(…) The monograph is written clearly and it is very rich in facts and data. It discusses the role of the Gulf Stream from a very wide perspective on various spatial and temporal scales, from the yearly variation of North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) to the periods of the Milankovich Cycle. The figures illustrating the text are very clear and useful for understanding the author’s arguments.
This book should prove useful to dedicated oceanographers and seamen who share the author’s vision that the role of the Gulf Stream can be fully appreciated only in the broader context of the global oceanic circulation.’
Prof. Dr. Stanislaw R. Massel, Institute of Oceanology, Polish Academy of Sciences, Oceanologia
‘This book is a response to present scientific debates about the impact of global warming upon the Gulf Stream. Voituriez explores in some depth the oceanography of this key feature of the North Atlantic, seeking to examine it and its significance, as well as its future.’
