    This second edition retains the general structure of the first edition, but
    has been updated in the light of recent oceanographic research, and improved
    as a teaching text on the basis of feedback from past students and other

    Notable additions include new sections addressing the topic of
    numerical modelling, and more discussion of natural oscillations in the
    ocean-atmosphere system (previously confined to the El Niño phenomenon). In
    particular, the Chapter on the North Atlantic now includes a discussion of
    the North Atlantic Oscillation, as well as of the Great Salinity Anomaly. In
    the final Chapter, treatment of water mass formation has been updated to
    reflect recent ideas about the processes involved and how they relate to
    climatic change over different time-scales, from decades to millennia.
