Covering a wide range of techniques, this book describes methods for the solution of partial differential equations which govern wave propagation and are used in modeling atmospheric and oceanic flows. The presentation establishes a concrete link between theory and practice.

SIAM Review

...at its heart, this book is a numerical method text that delivers a clear perspective on how to (and sometimes how not to) approximate the advection equations that are the basis of fluid dynamics...In Numerical Methods for Wave Equations in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics, Durran has produced a thorough and well-organized treatment of numerical methods for nonlinear wave PDE's in fluid dynamics. While remaining true to its geophysical theme, the contents and presentation speak to a wider audience with interests in computational fluid dynamics and wave PDE's.
