Numerical ocean models play an important role in increasing our ability to comprehend oceanic processes, monitor the state of the oceans, and to a limited extent, even predict their future state. This book surveys this field and brings together a discussion of salient oceanic dynamics and processes, numerical solution methods, and ocean models.
