This book examines the general principles governing ocean phenomena in regions of shallow water near land. It emphasizes physical process such as tested effects, global sea level changes, and sediment transport.A system of three hydrological zones exists over the western shelf that is somewhat analogous to that found on the eastern ... These hydrological zones, coastal, transitional and oceanic, are easily distinguished in TS diagrams (Khen, in press). The coastal zone has low-salinity (alt;3 1 .0) surface water and a strong pycnocline (Brunt-Vaisala frequency always agt;0.015 ... Coachman ( 1 986) integrated all these physical features and processes into dynamical regimes separated by fronts.
