Filling an important gap in the geophysical literature at specialist level, this monograph is the only uptodate title to provide a link between the Earths rotation and its atmo and hydrosphere, including the ice masses. Starting with the Earths motions, the text goes on to look at irregularities and the effect of atmospheric processes on the Earths spin. Tides and seasons occupy the following sections before a discussion of the Earthoceanatmosphere system and the mechanical action of the atmosphere on the Earths rotation. The whole is rounded off by an index of abbreviations and appendices with sections on related physics for better readability, plus a comprehensive bibliography for further reading. A must for geophysicists, oceanographers, glaciologists, climatologists and meteorologists alike.
