By Eric Chassignet,Claudia Cenedese,Jacques Verron

Buoyancy is likely one of the major forces riding flows on our planet, specially within the oceans and surroundings. those flows diversity from buoyant coastal currents to dense overflows within the ocean, and from avalanches to volcanic pyroclastic flows at the Earth's floor. This booklet brings jointly contributions via top international scientists to summarize our current theoretical, observational, experimental and modeling figuring out of buoyancy-driven flows. Buoyancy-driven currents play a key function within the international ocean move and in weather variability via their effect on deep-water formation. Buoyancy-driven currents also are essentially liable for the redistribution of unpolluted water through the world's oceans. This booklet is a useful source for complex scholars and researchers in oceanography, geophysical fluid dynamics, atmospheric technological know-how and the broader Earth sciences who desire a state of the art reference on buoyancy-driven flows.
