Owen Phillips is a Fellow of the Royal Society and a member of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering. He has held academic posts at Cambridge University and the Johns Hopkins University. He was awarded the Sverdrup Gold Medal of the American Meteorological Society for his contributions to oceanography, and a fellowship in the American Geophysical Union for his contributions to geological fluid dynamics. His Last Chance Energy Book, published in 1979, anticipated the first global energy crisis of the 1980s, while his recent research has been on subsurface aquifer flows, the dispersal of contaminants and flow-controlled reactions in rocks. He has two other publications with Cambridge University Press – The Dynamics of the Upper Ocean (1966), which was awarded the Adams Prize from Cambridge University, and Flow and Reactions in Permeable Rocks (1991).
'… Phillips' prose is lucid and graceful and the book is a pleasure to read … a hallmark of Dr Phillips' approach is simple physically insightful, and often analytically tractable mathematical descriptions. His arguments for relatively simple models are clearly expressed … It will definitely find a prominent place on my bookshelf as a useful guide to first-order quantitative approaches.'
