Abstract: This volume contains the edited and refereed proceedings of the Third International Symposium on Stratified Flows, convened on February 3-5, 1987 in Pasadena, California. It consists of papers on such topics as internal waves and their stability, blocking and intrusion, topographic effects, rotating stratified flows, turbulent stratified shear flows, mixed-layer dynamics and convection, frontal phenomena and gravity currents, plumes, thermals, and direct numerical simulation of the Navier-Stokes equation. Thus, anyone who is interested in the topic of stratified flow dynamics including oceanographers, atmospheric scientists, environmental and hydraulic engineers, mechanical and chemical engineers, and applied mathematicians will find this proceeding a useful guide.
