marine survey Books

  • Marine Mammals

    The field of marine mammal science has made enormous strides in the last ten years as well as attracting a large amount of interest, due no doubt to the public appeal of whales, dolphins, and seals, which are never out of media attention. The purpose of this book is to review key topics through chapters on the major disciplines from invited ...

  • Status of marine protected areas in the Mediterranean sea

    The main aim of this report is to assess progress towards a network of ecologically representative and effectively managed MPAs that meets international obligations for conservation of the Mediterranean Sea. Specifically, results of this survey were used to measure Mediterranean progress towards the CBD targets of establishing a coherent network ...

  • Sample-based fishery surveys. A technical handbook (En)

    Series: FAO Fisheries Technical PapersThe purpose of this handbook is to summarize experience gained over recent years in fishery statistical development by the Fishery Information, Data and Statistics Unit (FIDI) of FAO, and provide planners and users of fishery surveys with simple and step-by-step guidance for developing and implementing ...

  • Marine Science & Technology in China: A Roadmap to 2050

    As one of the eighteen field-specific reports comprising the comprehensive scope of the strategic general report of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, this sub-report addresses long-range planning for developing science and technology in the field of marine science. They each craft a roadmap for their sphere of development to 2050. In their ...

  • Survey reports of the R/V DR. FRIDTJOF NANSEN 1975-89 (CD-ROM) (En)

    The research vessel DR. FRIDTJOF NANSEN operated for 18 years (1975 to 1993), surveying shelves and slopes of tropical and subtropical regions. The main objective was to provide developing countries with relevant information on their fishery resources, including distribution and biomass estimates that could be used for estimating stock potentials. ...

  • Guidelines for acoustic surveys in the northwest African region - Directives pour les campagnes acoustiques dans la région de l'Afrique du Nord-Ouest

    This manual provides a guide to the survey routines that should be followed during hydro- acoustic fish abundance surveys in the northwest African region for a harmonized coverage. The guidelines could, however, also be useful for other regions with similar environmental characteristics and marine resources. The manual covers topics such as survey ...

  • Oceanic and Anthropogenic Controls of Life in the Pacific Ocean

    This volume presents a collection of original, multidisciplinary papers written by leading scientists from the various countries of the Pacific rim. The major topics covered are the origins of life in the marine environment; the changing distribution of biological parameters; hydrophysical and hydrochemical processes; and the exploitation of ...

  • High Frequency Ocean Acoustics

    All papers were peer-reviewed. Sound in the ocean is as fundamental as light in theatmosphere. The high-frequency acoustic band has been little studied in the past; however, new applications such as mine hunting, marine mammal tracking, and communications (the undersea internet) have generated tremendous interest. These peer-reviewed proceedings ...

  • 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 ...

  • The Handbook of Sidescan Sonar

    Seafloor surveying with acoustic remote sensing has become a powerful tool for researchers and professionals seeking knowledge about the structure and behavior of the seafloor. In particular, sidescan sonar is proving to be the preeminent technique, but its data is often difficult to interpret due to the physics of acoustic remote sensing, and to ...

  • 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 ...

  • Tsunamis

    Twenty papers comprise a timely review of state-of-the-art tsunami research. Various approaches are taken to study tsunamis: field-surveys of recent tsunamis; analysis of tide-gauge records; numerical simulations of tsunami generation and propagation, tank experiments, and geological studies of tsunami deposits. The papers are also divided into ...

  • Sampling Rare or Elusive Species: Concepts, Designs, and Techniques for Estimating Population Parameters

    Information regarding population status and abundance of rare species plays a key role in resource management decisions. Ideally, data should be collected using statistically sound sampling methods, but by their very nature, rare or elusive species pose a difficult sampling challenge.Sampling Rare or Elusive Species describes the latest sampling ...
