THE SEA

Ideas and Observations on Progress in the Study of the Seas

An occasional supplement to the Journal of Marine Research

 

The editors are pleased to announce that the Journal of Marine Research is now publisher of the long-standing and well-respected oceanographic series The Sea.

 

The Sea is a continuing, comprehensive, and timely synthesis of the state of knowledge of ocean science. Topics that have been addressed in this series include physical, biological, and chemical oceanography, marine geology and geophysics, and the interactions of the oceans with the atmosphere, the solid earth, and ice.

 

Access to newly published articles is included in our online Journal of Marine Research subscription through Ingenta Connect.

 

Print-on-demand copies of The Sea supplements are available for direct purchase here.

 

The previously published volumes in this series are available through Harvard University Press.

This volume of The Sea aims to document the current state of the art in all facets of this broad subject of the science of ocean prediction.

 

This supplement is concerned with the systematic development of fundamental knowledge about ocean dynamics in the form of testable ocean models and estimation systems that relate to forecasting the ocean’s evolution. Articles cover the scientific understanding and fundamentals that define and allow the ocean prediction endeavor, as well as the implementation of concepts and methods in predictive system components and their applications to varied oceanographic services.
