Introduction to fluid dynamics
T.J. Pedley

The basic equations of fluid mechanics are stated, with enough derivation to make them plausible but without rigour. The physical meanings of the terms in the equations are explained. Again, the behaviour of fluids in real situations is made plausible, in the light of the fundamental equations, and explained in physical terms. Some applications relevant to life in the ocean are given.
