    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 140.00

    Aquacultural, oceanographic, and fisheries engineering, as well as other disciplines, require gas solubility data to compute the equilibrium concentration.

The beginning of the new millennium marks a major, long-term turning point in the historical development of Britain's maritime interest discernible by continued... more...

  • Marine Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functioningby Martin Solan; Rebecca J. Aspden; David M. Paterson

    Oxford University Press 2012; US$ 59.99

    The biological composition and richness of most of the Earth's major ecosystems are being dramatically and irreversibly transformed by anthropogenic activity. Yet, despite the vast areal extent of our oceans, the mainstay of research to-date in the biodiversity-ecosystem functioning arena has been weighted towards ecological observations and experimentation... more...
