Tremendous progress has been made in the geological understanding of the Korean seas with the advances in sophisticated exploration techniques, specifically in the areas of marine geophysics, sedimentology, geochemistry, and palaeoceanography, since "Marine Geology of Korean Seas" was first published in 1983. This book gives a comprehensive overview of the marine geology of these unique seas, including physiography, sedimentary facies and depositional processes of surface sediments, sequence stratigraphy, geologic structures, and basin evolution. In this edition, new results and interpretations have been incorporated that help to formulate geological models on the evolution of the Korean seas in relation to the adjacent continents.
J. Jackson, Portland, OR, USA A major strength of this volume is the references to 260 Korean publications. This is a very useful introduction to this part of Asia, and it belongs in the libraries of companies and institutions with interests in the region. AAPG Bulletin Wyss W.-S. Yim, Hong Kong ...It is a useful summary, particularly for the first-time reader who would like to find out more about the marine geology of the region. ...it is a welcome addition to the slowly growing amount of published information on continental margins/marginal seas.
