Devoted to assessing the resources, technology and ecology of the world's oceans, the Ocean Yearbook provides this information to its worldwide audience in one convenient, easy-to-use resource.
As in previous editions, each article in Ocean Yearbook 20 provides a unique perspective and case study written by an expert in the field, allowing readers to learn from specialists without having to decipher field-specific jargon. Each new volume contains key international documents and an annually updated global directory of ocean-related organizations.
In addition to appendices featuring the Report of the International Ocean Institute, 2004 and other selected documents and proceedings, topics covered in Ocean Yearbook 20 include:
Environment and Coastal Management
Maritime Transport and Security
Education and Training
Ocean Yearbook is a collaborative initiative of the International Ocean Institute and the Marine and Environmental Law Programme at Dalhousie University Law School, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.
For me, this is the essential and definitive book to understand the complex issue of Marine Scientific Research from a legal point of view.

It provides a comprehensive foundation for the entire subject and has been very helpful to us in assessing the various issues we are forced to face with respect to scientific ocean drilling."
