  • Materials Performance and the Deep Sea

    The Symposium on Materials Performance and the Deep Sea was presented during the Seventy-first Annual Meeting of the Society held in San Francisco, Calif., 23—29 June 1968. The symposium was sponsored by Committees G01 on Corrosion of Metals and G03 on Deterioration of Nonmetallic Materials in cooperation with the Marine Technology Society, ...

  • Deep-water Coral Reefs

    Deep-water coral reefs are found along large sections of the outer continental shelves and slopes of Europe, from North Cape to the Gulf of Cadiz, and because they also occur along the Atlantic seaboard of USA, the Gulf of Mexico, off Brazil, in the Mediterranean, and off New Zealand, they are currently being targeted by international groups of ...

  • Deep Structure of the Swiss Alps

    The novel tectonic model of the deep crustal structure of the Alpine collision zone is the result of an integration of seismic reflection and refraction data and structural data. Besides data gathered from the crust/mantle boundary, significant new insight was gained from the shallower structures. This includes 3D, subsurface mapping of Alpine ...

  • Jan Mayen Island in Scientific Focus

    Jan Mayen is a volcanic island surrounded by the deep Greenland, Iceland and Norwegian Seas. There, atmospheric and oceanic processes unleash potential energy that forces very dynamic interactions between sea and air. This unique geophysical focal point generates climatic variability in northern Europe, and supports marine biological production ...

  • European Margin Sediment Dynamics

    The book provides acoustic images about sedimentary systems of the shelf edge, slope and deep-sea-floor. The knowledge gained can be used by both academia and hydrocarbon industry in a better understanding of continental margins and the processes shaping them. It is also of interest to colleagues in earth sciences involved in margin surveys for ...

  • Crayfishes, Lobsters and Crabs of Europe

    Fishermen, marine aquarists, biologists studying seashore and coastal waters, and those involved in trading shellfish and even restaurateurs are aware of the great diversity of crustaceans inhabiting the seas around the British Isles, Northern Europe and the Mediterranean. Crayfishes, Lobsters and Crabs of Europe will enable the reader to ...

  • Ocean Processes in Climate Dynamics: Global and Mediterranean Examples

    One of the most crucial but still very poorly understood topics of oceanographic science is the role of ocean processes in contributing to the dynamics of climate and global change. This book presents a series of high level lectures on the major categories of ocean/atmosphere processes. Three of these major issues are the focus of the ...

  • Meiobenthology

    Meiobenthology is the science of the tiny animals that live in huge numbers in all aquatic sediments. This fully revised and enlarged second edition emphasizes new discoveries and developments in this field. Major progress has been made in three general areas: - Systematics, diversity and distribution, - Ecology, food webs, and energy flow, - ...

  • Current Developments in Bioerosion

    A little more than forty years has past since the concept of bioerosion was formally recognised as the biological erosion of hard materials. In that time, it has become apparent from the literature that bioerosional processes affect a wide range of biological and geological systems that cross many disciplines among the sciences. This book is ...
