The printed edition from Daya Publishing House is in black and white. A colour version is offered online for free download in pdf format.* Check the version history before you download and verify which chapters have been updated recently.

In the interest of the environment we recommend that you print the book double-sided. This page gives you a choice to achieve that:

The figures have a resolution of 600 bpi. As a result most files are in the 1 - 3 Mb range and will not fit on floppy disks. The high resolution has two advantages:

  1. The text and figures can be magnified on the screen without loss of quality, which makes it possible to use the illustrations for teaching in a classroom, using a computer projector.
  2. In most situations the print quality of the book is limited only by the printer resolution. Colour laser printers will produce output that comes very close to true book quality.

To keep file sizes down for modem downloads each chapter has to be downloaded separately. Pagination is continuous, with each chapter commencing with an odd page, so you can print out chapters individually.

As a guide for the download, below is an overview of the content. A more detailed contents list is included in the Title and Preface chapter.

Chapters 1 - 5: Introduction and general principles (geostrophy, Ekman layer, Sverdrup balance)
Chapters 6 - 7: Antarctic and Arctic oceanography
Chapters 8 - 10: The Pacific Ocean
Chapters 11 - 13: The Indian Ocean
