Very educational about types of sea waves
Reviewed in the United States on February 7, 2013
Great little book (5" x 7" x 1" thick) by MIT Press. It has sections about waves, the wind, tides, waves and the shore, extreme waves, and a appendix and glossary of word definitions. The book contains equations, diagrams, and pictures. The book describes earthquake generated waves including the 2011 Japanese tsunami which generated "tidal waves".
One oddity of layout is that a number of pages are black with large white text to emphasize points made in the text. I would have preferred pictures rather than repetition of the text.
All in all, I enjoyed the book.
PS: a great textbook reference is "Wind Waves, their generation and propagation on the ocean surface" by Blair Kinsman, Department of Oceanography, John Hopkins University.
