Practical Handbook of Marine Science, Third Edition

Buy
This third edition of Practical Handbook of Marine Science provides the most comprehensive contemporary reference material on the physical, chemical, and biological aspects of the marine realm. Since the publication of the second edition of this book 5 years ago, there have been significant advances in nearly all areas of marine science. It is the focus of this volume to examine these developments and to amass significant new data that will have appeal and utility for practicing marine scientists and students engaged in investigations in oceanography and related disciplines. Because of its broad coverage of the field, this volume will be valuable as a supplemental text for undergraduate and graduate marine science courses. In addition, administrators and other professionals dealing in some way with the management of marine resources and various problems pertaining to the sea will find the book useful.

Much of this third edition consists of updated material as evidenced by the large number of recent references (1995 to 1999) cited in the text. This edition contains a systematic collection of selective physical, chemical, and biological reference data on estuarine and oceanic ecosystems. It is comprised of six chapters: Physiography, Marine Chemistry, Physical Oceanography, Marine Geology, Marine Biology, and Marine Pollution and Other Anthropogenic Impacts. Each chapter is arranged in a multisectional format, with information presented in expository, illustrative, and tabular formats.

The main purpose of this handbook is the same as the two previous editions: to serve the multidisciplinary research needs of contemporary marine biologists, marine chemists, marine geologists, and physical oceanographers. It is also hoped that the publication will serve the academic needs of a new generation of marine science students.

I wish to acknowledge my colleagues who have been instrumental in enabling me to gain new insights into the complex and fascinating world of marine science. In particular, in the Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences at Rutgers University I am thankful to Kenneth W. Able, Michael P. DeLuca, Richard A. Lutz, J. Frederick Grassle, John N. Kraeuter, and Norbert P. Psuty. I also express my deep appreciation to the editorial staff of CRC Press, especially John B. Sulzycki, who supervised all editorial and production activities on the book, and Christine Andreasen, who provided technical editing support on the volume. Finally, I am most appreciative of my wife, Jo-Ann, and sons, Shawn and Michael, for recognizing the importance of my commitment to complete this volume and for providing love and support during its preparation.

Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise (UCCE) (Networking Technology: IP Communications)

With all the fantastic Cisco documentation available online, why does the world of UCCE need this book? UCCE is such a big topic that it would be easy to think that it is possible to try and cover absolutely everything. Unfortunately, this would turn this book into nothing more than a product reference manual that could potentially be...

Robots, Reasoning, and Reification
Robots, Reasoning, and Reification
Robots, Reasoning, and Reification focuses on a critical obstacle that is preventing the development of intelligent, autonomous robots: the gap between the ability to reason about the world and the ability to sense the world and translate that sensory data into a symbolic model.

This ability is what enables living systems to look at the world...

Understanding IPv6: Your Essential Guide to IPv6 on Windows Networks
When Joe first asked me to write a foreword for this latest edition of Understanding IPv6, I looked to forewords from previous editions as well as other networking books, hoping to draw some inspiration. As will become increasingly obvious, my writing skills are not as honed as Joe’s.

Using OpenCL: Programming Massively Parallel Computers (Advances in Parallel Computing)

In 2011 many computer users were exploring the opportunities and the benefits of the massive parallelism offered by heterogeneous computing. In 2000 the Khronos Group, a not-for-profit industry consortium, was founded to create standard open APIs for parallel computing, graphics and dynamic media. Among them has been OpenCL, an open system...
