By X. Le Pichon, M. Melguen, J. C. Sibuet (auth.), Henry Charnock, Sir George Deacon (eds.)

The papers on the basic Symposia of the Joint Oceanographic meeting have been offered via authors who were invited to house themes of large interdisciplinary curiosity. jointly they gave a useful account of the current kingdom of marine examine, its proQlems and capability. There turns out benefit in publishing them in a single quantity and we're thankful to the authors who kindly agreed to arrange their papers for book. This has taken a while (and now not all authors discovered it attainable) yet we are hoping the ensuing quantity remains to be indicative of developments in glossy oceanography. quite obvious is the best way the utilized points are starting to play a extra very important half even with concerns concerning the results of the legislation of the ocean on our freedom to make observations. we're in particular thankful to the 4 authors who agreed to offer lectures summarising the paintings of their personal box which used to be stated on the meeting. We additionally desire to thank the opposite authors, in addition to all eager about the meeting and with the creation of this volume.

Twentieth-century Marine Science: Decade by Decade

From Swedish hydrographer Otto Pettersson and the institution of the foreign Council for the Exploration of the ocean to Wallace Broecker's leap forward realizing of the oceanic conveyor belt, this quantity highlights the development of the Marine technological know-how.

Darwin, Geodynamics and Extreme Waves

This booklet examines the explanations at the back of the resonant amplification of seismic and ocean waves that experience the capability to spoil towns and ocean-going vessels. utilizing Charles Darwin’s vital geophysical examine as a place to begin, it offers insights into the interplay among earthquakes with volcanoes, seaquake, and tsunami formation.

The Gulf of Mexico Basin

The aim of The Geology of North the USA sequence of volumes has been to supply a accomplished precis or synthesis of the present geological and geophysical wisdom of the areas or matters lined by means of all the volumes. The volumes are meant no longer quite a bit for these such a lot accustomed to the area or topic, yet for a broader viewers of earth scientists— geologists and geophysicists from anyplace on the earth who are looking to tell themselves in regards to the geological and geophysical configuration of the North American Plate and its surrounding areas.
