  • Chemistry in the Marine Environment

    The oceans cover more than 70% of the earth's surface to an average depth of almost 4000 metres. It is therefore not surprising that exchanges that occur between ocean and atmosphere exert major influences on the global climate. In addition, there is great variety within the expanses of the ocean, including large temperature differences, and ...

  • Marine Corrosion in Tropical Environments

  • Chemical Processes in Marine Environments

    This book discusses recent developments in the study of chemical processes and equilibria in the marine environment and in the air/water and water/sediment interfaces. The chemical cycle of carbon as well as the effect of organic substances on the speciation and distribution of inorganic and organometallic substances are extensively discussed. ...

  • Cratering in Marine Environments and on Ice

    Despite their global importance, little is known about the few existing examples of impacts into marine environments and icy targets. They are among the least understood and studied parts of impact crater geology. The icy impacts are also of great importance in understanding the developments of the outer planets and their satellites such as Mars ...

    This report provides an overview of the current state of the coastal and marine environment in relation to the nine catagories of threats outlined by the ...

  • Marine Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation

    Despite the potential benefits that PSSA designation can deliver, recent practice both within the IMO and by individual member States, has considerably undermined confidence in this emerging concept. The focus of this book is on the events within the IMO that have led to this lack of confidence arising. In doing so, this book presents an ...

  • Deeper than Plastic: Issues for the Marine Environment

    With the return of David Attenborough's Blue Planet, the Earth's seas and oceans have been at the forefront of the public agenda in 2018. This edition of the environmental SCIENTIST takes a look beneath the surface, uncovering issues faced by the marine environment. Join us, as we dive into topics such as the changing habitats of cetacean species, ...

  • Marine Radioactivity

    This book on Marine Radioactivity sets out to cover most of the aspects of marine radioactivity which have been the focus of scientific study in recent decades. The authors and their reviews divide into topic areas which have defined the field over its history. They cover the suite of natural radioisotopes which have been present in the oceans ...

  • Marine Chemistry

    This book introduces the general principles of reaction equilibria and kinetics involved in marine geochemical cycles. The major electrolytes dramatically affect the rates and equilibria of the chemical reactions in the sea. In order to understand these interactions, it is necessary to have a detailed knowledge of the major, minor and trace ...
