Review:

'... This is an excellent book, maintaining and improving on the high standard of previous editions..' Ocean Challenge 1991

'...the book is a bargain. I have owned a copy of the first edition since 1968; however I intend having a copy of the fourth edition for my personal collection; I recommend that others follow suit.'
Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences

I have just finished teaching an introductory undergraduate survey course in physical oceanography using the new edition of Pickard's splendid book. Although I am not unprejudiced (since I have used the first edition for about four years), both editions have been a joy to use.'

'Any person wanting an introduction to the subject would do well to read this book.'
