Promotional Information

A reference on the tachocline for researchers and graduates in astrophysics, heliospheric physics, and fluid and plasma dynamics.

Reviews

'Many of the challenging problems discussed will probably be with us for decades, so the book will become a valuable source, both for established workers and graduate students. It should certainly be in the library of every university with research schools in stellar astrophysics, geophysics, and in basic hydrodynamics and plasma physics.' The Observatory
'...the book will be the standard reference on the subject.' Geophysical and Astrophysical Fluid Dynamics
"This book represents the best overall summary of what we know about the techocline. It is intended as a reference for researchers and graduate students in astro and heliospheric physics." Publisher Review
