About this book

The Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS) is the first multidisciplinary programme to directly address the interactions between biology, chemistry and the physics of marine systems, with emphasis on the transport and transformations of carbon within the ocean and across its boundaries. This book provides a synthesis of JGOFS science and its achievements to date, so will appeal to all those seeking a recent overview of the role of ocean processes in Earth system science and their wider implications on climate change.

Provides insights into how the global atmosphere is regulated, and how if affects ecosystems worldwide. Well-done! Northeastern Naturalist 2001
