Overview

Field (zoology, U. of Cape Town, South Africa), Hempel (emeritus, U. of Kiel, Germany), and Summerhayes (Intergovermental Oceanographic Commission) present 12 contributions that collectively assess the state of ocean sciences in the context of the societal questions that oceanic science may be called on to answer. Issues of sustainable development and the ability of scientific, governmental, and private sector communities to respond to these issues are considered. The topics include the coastal zone as an ecosystem, climate change and the ocean, fisheries and fisheries science, ocean studies for offshore industry, marine information for shipping and defense, operational oceanography, oceanographic instrumentation and technologies, and future trends.
