Overview

The subject of the book, considering the study of the interactions between atmospheric forces, water masses, and living resources in the Southern Oceans, is not only of scientific interest but also of practical importance, especially for the management of the resources and the protection of the Antarctic marine ecosystem. What is known on the variability in the Antarctic ocean circulation and what are possible causes for such variations? To what extent and how does this variability influence primary productivity, zooplankton, and in particular, the distribution and abundance of krill? What are the subsequent effects on krill predators, such as seals, penguins, fishes and squid? The book reviews present knowledge and encourages further work in this field.
