About this book

The present book represents a unique survey of recent Russian research on element cycling in the ocean, with new data on the Aral Sea. It takes the form of a broad-scale review of organic matter cycling in the world's oceans and in particular the working of marginal filters. It offers an up-to-date survey of sediment ecology and key aspects, such as spatial scaling, the effect of nutrients and trawling in benthic systems.
