From the reviews: "The book presents a systematisation and description of the knowledge accumulated today, based on numerous observational data, collected by the authors of the chapters during sea and shore expeditions ! . This book addresses the specialists working in various fields of physical oceanography, marine chemistry, pollution studies, and biology and studying a cascade of problems ! . It may also be useful to students and post-graduates specialising in oceanographic research, as many unique processes occur in this extremely interesting basin."
