This is a study of the dynamics of incompressible flow with particular emphasis on empirical information. The aim of the book is to help readers understand the behaviour of fluids in motion and the equations of motion are analyzed. The work includes a non-mathematical introduction to three particular flow configurations and consideration of topics of geophysical importance. Photographs illustrate the phenomena discussed and the concluding chapter demonstrates, through description and illustration, the wide applicability of fluid mechanics. New topics in this second edition include double diffusive convection and modern ideas about dynamical chaos - mainly in relation to transition to turbulence. The discussion of instabilities has been restructured and the treatments of separation and of convection in horizontal layers has been extended.
