Book Title: The Applied Dynamics of Ocean Surface Waves

Author: Chiang C. Mei

Book Description:

My adviser's adviser was Dr. Mei, so perhaps it is no surprise that this text was so central to my doctoral research. Expansive in scope and simultaneously meticulous in detail, this text is an indispensible reference to anyone with an interest in water wave mechanics and coastal engineering. Elegant mathematical formulations set the stage for discussions of numerous important engineering applications, such as breaking waves, sediment transport, and fluid-seabed interactions. Perhaps the highest compliment I can pay Dr. Mei is to note that my copy of his text is one of the most beat-up, dog-eared, and abused texts on my shelves.
