About this book

Presents the systematization and description of accumulated knowledge on oceanic fronts of the Norwegian, Greenland, Barentsd and Bering Seas. It contains general information on the oceanic fronts of these Subarctic Seas, brief history of their investigation, state of the knowledge, as well as detailed description of thermohaline structure of all frontal zones in the seas and of neigbouring fronts of Arctic and coastal origin.

A lot of figures, satellite images, schemes and tables with the results of the observations and calculations provide a good support to the vivid language of the book, making it easy to understand. -Mikhail Emelianov, in SCIENTIA MARINA "Anyone interested in the subarctic seas of the Atlantic and Pacific will find this book useful, and it is written at a level that can be understood by the non-specialist."
