Product description


"Ocean acidification, or more correctly ocean carbonation as the opening chapter in this excellent book reminds us, is the by now well known effect of the massive on-going transfer of fossil fuel CO2 from the atmosphere to the ocean. I liked this book and will dip into it often. These are the best and the brightest giving the state-of-the-art in 2011." -- Limnology and Oceanography Bulletin

"Overall, Ocean Acidification provides an excellent summary of the current key knowledge of ocean acidification and will prove to be a very good reference for current researchers of the subject, and a must for those in the science community who have a keen interest in finding out more about this fascinating and important subject." -- Clare Green, School of Ocean Sciences, Bangor University, GEO: The Quarterly Newsletter of The European Geosciences Union

About the Author

Jean-Pierre Gattuso is CNRS Research Professor at the Laboratoire d'Océanographie de Villefranche, CNRS and Université Pierre et Marie Curie-Paris 6. His main research activity relates to the cycling of carbon and carbonate in coastal ecosystems. More recently, he focused on the response of marine organisms and ecosystems to ocean acidification and published his first paper on this topic in 1998. He is the Scientific Coordinator of the FP7 large-scale integrated project EPOCA (European Project on Ocean Acidification). Jean-Pierre Gattuso is co-editor of the "Guide to Best Practices in Ocean Acidification Research and Data Reporting" published by the European Publications Office in 2010. He is also the Founding President of the Biogeosciences Division of the European Geosciences Union (2001-2005) and the Founding editor-in-chief of the journal Biogeosciences (2004-2009). More information is available at: http://www.obs-vlfr.fr/~gattuso and http://epoca-project.eu. Lina Hansson has a Master of Science in Biotechnology Engineering and is the project manager of EPOCA - the European Project on Ocean Acidification. She co-edited the "Guide to Best Practices in Ocean Acidification Research and Data Reporting", a guidance document for the ocean acidification research community covering seawater carbonate chemistry, experimental design of perturbation experiments, measurements of CO2-sensitive processes and data reporting and usage. The guide was published in 2010 and is freely available from http://www.epoca-project.eu/index.php/Home/Guide-to-OA-Research/. Lina Hansson is the co-author of several articles on the EPOCA project in the newsletters of IMBER, SOLAS, LOICZ and The Eggs and in a special issue of Oceanography magazine on ocean acidification published in 2009.

Rick (reviewer below) is clearly mistaken and referring to another book in his review. Gattuso's book is excellent, and increasingly recognised as the standard text for students studying ocean acidification. Gattuso is thorough, highly original, and has already sparked a great deal of new research activity in this new field.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent service. Received as expected 8 Jun. 2016
By flygirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent service. Received as expected; in good condition and timely. Great book on a hot topic about which everyone in the world would want to be aware. Our climate change is affecting our oceans. The implications are significant. Recommend both this company and the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another opinion 5 Mar. 2013
By Largh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I think Rick refers to this [...] I agree with Jean-Pierre Gattuso that Rick's review, and especially the one star, is very subjective, narrow and badly explained. Hey, if you want to get free material, the internet is full of that nowadays and you can replace pretty much any book with a collection of well written free pdfs and open source articles. However, Ocean Acidification is exceptionally well written, concise and, the figures (which are my absolute favorite part of the book) are very illustrative, creative and nice looking. If you want to buy a book on ocean acidification, to learn more about the topic, to have a concise collection of references, or just for a quick reference, this book is highly recommended. If you know everything about OA, you prefer free material or you just don't need books, this book (nor any other) is not for you. Because same content is free somewhere else (which it is not, at least not in one place) is not a reason enough to condemn the book. The guide to best practices for OA research is a guide, as it says. This book explains OA from a more general point of view.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original material 7 April 2012
By Jean-Pierre Gattuso - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The previous reviewer is mistaken. "Ocean acidification" by Gattuso and Hansson is an original book. The controversial book that the reviewer has in mind is likely: Guide to Best Practices for Ocean Acidification Research: The Carbon Dioxide System in Seawater: Equilibrium Chemistry and Measurements

2.0 out of 5 stars How does the book reflect the actual instrumental time series data of global ocean pH? 20 Dec. 2014
By Michael G Wallace - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Since the author is participating in the discussion, I have an important question before I would purchase: Does the book include a candid coverage of the 80 years of ocean pH data prior to 1989 comprising over 2 million records? Or, as is the typical case now, does the book disregard that information? No offense is intended, but it has been hard to find any author on this crucial topic who appears to be willing to address this epic data omission.

1.0 out of 5 stars Free 23 Mar. 2012
By Rick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While the book is useful the contents have been simply been extracted from a freely available publication- Ocean acidification guide to best practice. I strongly encourage interested readers to go get the free version and not spend their money on this book.
