* Quasigeostrophic Motion of a Stratified Fluid on a Sphere
* Instability Theory
* Ageostrophic Motion


From the reviews
"The author has done a masterful job in presenting the theory with the necessary mathematical foundation, while keeping the physical aspects in clear view ... it is an outstanding introduction to a complex and important subject." (GEOPHYSICS)
