An excellent background text for most oceonographic studies
on 11 October 2001
This book has been written as a basic text for those interested in, and more particularly, those studying oceanography and marine science.
The text book covers a wide range of topics, from phyical characteristics of seawater to applications of modern oceanographic study techniques. The revision questions and exercises throughout the book allow the reader to test their knowledge and understanding of each section within the text, whilst detailed worked examples and explanations to questions provide a valuable revision tool.
This book is very clearly written, with accompanying diagrams and examples throughout. It is an excellent book to own, in order to form a basis for marine studies, or to act as a research and guidance tool for all levels of interest and ability.
