About this book

Marine science captured world attention again this year as dramatic events in the Gulf of Mexico focused attention on the role and resiliency of the oceans. Annual Review of Marine Science, Volume 3 examines accumulating knowledge on a diverse set of topics, such as the use of tracers to track ocean circulation, employing turbidite deposits to trace paleoseismic activity, examining various pools of inorganic and organic compounds and their contribution to marine biogeochemistry, and deciphering various physiological strategies used by marine microbes to sequester carbon and nitrogen. In keeping with the times, much of the emphasis in these chapters is placed in the context of a changing environment and the utilization of new technologies to explore these topics. Poignant perspective is provided in this year's prefatory chapter by Wolfgang Berger, reflecting on a career of paleoceanography and paleoclimatology research.
