Summary Major reference work, edited by John H. Steele, Karl K. Turekian, and Steve A. Thorpe, covering "the physical processes that drive the oceans and the chemical, biological, and geological disciplines" of marine research. It "also covers ancillary topics such as ocean technology, law of the oceans, global programs, marine policy, the use of the oceans for food and energy, and the impact of pollution and climate changes. The many different methods used to study the oceans are covered, from ship-based systems to satellite remote sensing."
