During the ensuing 2400 years, myriad theo- tional Mechanics, ISBN 1-85312-351-X). This book, ries, beliefs, and references were made to the sun's a volume in the series Advances in Fluid Mechanics, variations and the influence on the earth's climate. explores gravity waves at the surface of a fluid of non- This book approaches the sun-climate connection link uniform depth. The seven chapters of the book were as an ongoing journey. In three parts, the authors written by 11 experts who research bottom topogra- present material on solar activity, development of phy and related topics.
