Benoit Cushman-Roisin is Professor of Engineering Sciences at Dartmouth College, where he has been on the faculty since 1990. His teaching includes a series of introductory, mid-level, and advanced courses in environmental engineering. He has also developed new courses in sustainable design and industrial ecology. Prof. Cushman-Roisin holds a B.S. in Engineering Physics, Summa Cum Laude, from the University of Liège, Belgium (1978) and a Ph.D. in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics from the Florida State University (1980). He is the author of two books and numerous refereed publications on various aspects of environmental fluid mechanics. In addition to his appointment at Dartmouth College, Prof. Cushman-Roisin maintains an active consultancy in environmental aspects of fluid mechanics and energy efficiency He is co-founder of e2fuel LLC, a startup dedicated to aviation and trucking fuel from clean sources. He is the founding editor of Environmental Fluid Mechanics.

Introduction to Geophysical Fluid Dynamics provides an introductory-level exploration of geophysical fluid dynamics (GFD), the principles governing air and water flows on large terrestrial scales. Physical principles are illustrated with the aid of the simplest existing models, and the computer methods are shown in juxtaposition with the equations to which they apply. It explores contemporary topics of climate dynamics and equatorial dynamics, including the Greenhouse Effect, global warming, and the El Nino Southern Oscillation.
