    Springer 2010; US$ 29.95

    One of the greatest scientific and technological achievements of the 21st century will be to cast a light on the eternal darkness of the deep ocean and this book identifies the key determinants of life or death in its extreme environment. Dr. Erik Seedhouse examines how individuals survive free dives to 200m, how humans adapt to breathing exotic gas... more...

  • DEEP WATERby National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Dril

    Perseus Distribution Digital 2011; US$ 15.95

    On April 20, 2010, the Macondo well blew out, costing the lives of 11 men, and beginning a catastrophe that sank the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig and spilled nearly 5 million barrels of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico. The spill disrupted an entire region's economy, damaged fisheries and critical habitats, and brought vividly to light the risks... more...

  • Remote Sensing of the Changing Oceansby DanLing Tang

    Springer 2011; US$ 209.00

    Remote Sensing of the Changing Oceans is a comprehensive account of the basic con cepts, theories, methods and applications used in ocean satellite remote sensing. The book provides a synthesis of various new ideas and theories and discusses a series of key research topics in oceanic manifestation of global changes as viewed from space. A variety of... more...

  • Chemical Marine Monitoringby Philippe P. Quevauviller; Patrick Roose; Gert Verreet

    Wiley 2011; US$ 180.00

    Wide- scale chemical monitoring programmes are required by international conventions and European Union policies such as the Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EC) and the new EU Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD). This entails all waters, including transitional and coastal waters, sediments and biota. The final volume in the Water Quality... more...

  • TIDAL BORES, AEGIR, EAGRE, MASCARET, POROROCAby Hubert Chanson

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 134.00

    A tidal bore is a series of waves propagating upstream as the tidal flow turns to rising. It forms during spring tide conditions when the tidal range exceeds 4 to 6 m and the flood tide is confined to a narrow funnelled estuary. Its existence is based upon a fragile hydrodynamic balance between the tidal amplitude, the freshwater river flow conditions... more...

  • Oceanography from Spaceby Vittorio Barale; J.F.R. Gower; L. Alberotanza

    Springer 2010; US$ 179.00

    This Volume collects a series of key-note lectures delivered at the fourth "Oceans from Space" Symposium, held in Venice, Italy, in 2010. The revisited postscript in the title identifies it as the ideal follow-up of the legendary Oceanography from Space, edited by J.F.R. Gower and published in 1980, following the very first edition of "Oceans... more...

  • Advanced Ocean Modellingby Jochen Kämpf

    Springer 2010; US$ 159.00

    This book introduces the reader to advanced methods used in the computer-based modelling of fluid processes. This includes nonhydrostatic processes such as breaking internal waves and density-driven convection, but the model code is also used to simulate an El-Nino event! The book contains 25 practical exercises, using freely available Open-Source... more...

  • Carbon and Nutrient Fluxes in Continental Marginsby Kon-Kee Liu; Larry Atkinson; Renato Quiñones

    Springer 2010; US$ 279.00

    The book provides best estimates of carbon and nutrient fluxes in seven types of continental margins. In each type, these fluxes are reported in detail individually for 3-7 representative geographic regions, each of which is characterized by concise descriptions of the physical and biogeochemical settings. Drawn from the regional synthesis, a global... more...

  • Arctic Science, International Law and Climate Changeby Susanne Wasum-Rainer; Ingo Winkelmann; Katrin Tiroch

    Springer 2012; US$ 119.00

    Developments in the Arctic region are increasingly part of international discussion. The book contains a comprehensive and interdisciplinary analysis of the current problems around marine scientific research in the Arctic region. It combines scientific, legal and policy aspects. The main questions addressed are: ongoing and future Arctic marine research,... more...

  • Quasi-Geostrophic Theory of Oceans and Atmosphereby Fabio Cavallini; Fulvio Crisciani

    Springer 2012; US$ 129.00

    Large-scale winds and currents tend to balance Coriolis and pressure gradient forces. The time evolution of these winds and currents is the subject of the quasi-geostrophic theory. Chapter 1 presents concepts and equations of classical inertial fluid mechanics. Chapter 2 deals with the equations of thermodynamics that close the governing equations... more...
