Editorial Reviews

As a collaboration of The Explorers Club and the US National Park Service, these 18 presentations intended for the canceled Ocean Pulse I International Conference (Istanbul) are organized into five sections: aquaculture of the world oceans (is the future at our doorstep?), underwater technology applications to ocean exploration, advances in practical applications of underwater technology, new biotechnological applications to fisheries' aquaculture, and underwater archeological applications/advances. The concluding title proclaims the results of a 1996 US survey on exploration funding priorities: the "ocean beats out space, four to one!" Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
