Written by a group of international experts in their field, this book is a review of Lagrangian observation, analysis and assimilation methods in physical and biological oceanography. This multidisciplinary text presents new results on nonlinear analysis of Lagrangian dynamics, the prediction of particle trajectories, and Lagrangian stochastic models. It includes historical information, up-to-date developments, and speculation on future developments in Lagrangian-based observations, analysis, and modeling of physical and biological systems. Containing contributions from experimentalists, theoreticians, and modellers in the fields of physical oceanography, marine biology, mathematics, and meteorology, this book will be of great interest to researchers and graduate students looking for both practical applications and information on the theory of transport and dispersion in physical systems, biological modelling, and data assimilation.

'Because of the significance of the subject matter and the clarity of the exposition, this book likely will become a standard reference in the near future.' Book Review '... a substantial collection of well-written articles...' Eos, Transactions, American Geophysical Union 'We found the book very interesting reading and strongly recommend it as an encyclopedia on trajectory-related methods, as well as an historical expose over the dynamic development of a relatively new and viable branch of contemporary oceanography - a development that Joseph Luis Lagrange himself would have been delighted to see.'
