This e-book originated from our curiosity in sea floor temperature variability. Our preliminary, although fullyyt pragmatic, objective was once to derive enough mathemat­ ical instruments for dealing with definite oceanographic difficulties. ultimately, although, those concerns went some distance past oceanographic functions in part simply because one of many authors is a mathematician. We stumbled on that many theoretical problems with turbulent delivery difficulties have been many times mentioned in fields of hy­ drodynamics, plasma and reliable subject physics, and arithmetic itself. There are few monographs fascinated about turbulent diffusion within the ocean (Csanady 1973, Okubo 1980, Monin and Ozmidov 1988). whereas choosing fabric for this ebook we concentrated, first, on theoretical matters which may be valuable for figuring out mix approaches within the ocean, and, sec­ ond, on our personal contribution to the matter. Mathematically the entire matters addressed during this publication are targeted round a unmarried linear equation: the stochastic advection-diffusion equation. there is not any try to derive common statistics for turbulent stream. as a substitute, the focal point is on a statistical description of a passive scalar (tracer) below given speed information. As for functions, this booklet addresses just one phenomenon: shipping of sea floor temperature anomalies. confidently, besides the fact that, our major ways are acceptable to different subjects.

Nevertheless, this case is very important for applications in hydrodynamics and oceanography. Here we only give a particular example of separation (E) and a detailed discussion is given in chapter 4.

This problem is very important in oceanography, due to the wide use of Lagrangian devices (Davis 1991, Niiller 1995). 10) was also derived by Roberts (1961) via the Direct Interaction Approach (DIA) developed by Kraichnan (1959).
