  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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. ...

  • Marine Corrosion in Tropical Environments

  • The State of the Marine Environment : Trends and Processes

    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 ...

  • Voluntary Initiatives for the Protection of the Marine Environment (GPA No.2)

    The present report compiles lessons learned in the application of voluntary initiatives of relevance to the GPA, based on existing case-studies as well as questionnaires and interviews with a limited number of international experts from private sector ...

  • 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 ...

  • Ecology and Conservation of Southeast Asian Marine and Freshwater Environments including Wetlands

    A major concern among ecologists in and outside the ASEAN region is the degradation of the environment, and the overexploitation of freshwater and marine resources. There is as yet no indication that freshwater and marine resources are being managed on a sustainable basis, and loss of wetlands, whether freshwater swamps or mangrove swamps, is ...

The book has been specifically designed to bridge the gap between the rapidly advancing marine ...

  • Chemistry of Marine Water and Sediments

    The book deals with the processes in marine environment with particular emphasis on the interface processes (sediments- water and atmosphere-water) regarding organic matter and energy fluxes, carbon dioxide intake and transformation. Particular analytical methodologies concerning biosensors for analysis in situ are ...

  • Marine Science Frontiers for Europe

    Europe is a continent with a high coast-to-surface ratio, and European seas encompass a broad range of settings and regimes. The sustainable development of living and non-living marine resources, the protection of the marine environment and the provision of marine-based services are critical to economic prosperity and to the quality of life of ...

  • Strategic Management of Marine Ecosystems

    The demand for advanced management methods and tools for marine ecosystems is increasing worldwide. Today, many marine ecosystems are significantly affected by disastrous pollution from industrial, agricultural, municipal, transportation, and other anthropogenic sources. The issues of environmental integrity are especially acute in the ...

  • Introduction to Marine Genomics

    Marine biology has always played an important role in biological research, being at the origin of many key advances. To a certain extent, the influence of marine biology on the biological sciences was overshadowed over a period of several years by the remarkable advances that were made using powerful model organisms from terrestrial environments. ...
