What People are Saying About This
"..this book is actually quite engaging. The writing style is clear, direct, and informal..Anyone interested in continental- to global-scale particle and dissolved fluxes from the continents to the world ocean will benefit from having this material close at hand.." - Chris Paola, Oceanography Journal
"For university libraries and many research institutions dealing with global and regional change, this reference work is indispensable. To the best of my knowledge, this is the only public global reference database on river discharge to the coastal ocean. The authors who must have put an incredible amount of time and dedication into this work deserve great respect and thanks." - Environmental Earth Science Journal
