This book brings together the principal results from the North Sea Project, which were presented at a discussion meeting organized by The Royal Society. The aim was to understand more about the processes of the North Sea, particularly if we are to achieve a degree of rational management in the future as environmental threats increase.
Introduction to the North Sea project, J.H. Simpson; seasonal cycles and their spatial variability, M.J. Howarth, et al; the influence of horizontal circulation on the supply and distribution of tracers, D. Prandle, et al; suspended particulate matter in the North Sea - field observations and model simulations, J. Sundermann; dynamics of tidal mixing fronts in the North Sea, A.E. Hill, et al; circulation, hydrographic structure and mixing at tidal fronts - the view from Georges Bank, J.W. Loder, et al; hydrodynamics and sediment dynamics of North Sea sand waves and sand banks, D.A. Huntley, et al; resuspension processes and seston dynamics, southern North Sea, C.F. Jago, et al; biological consequences of tidal mixing gradients in the North Sea, P.B. Tett, et al; modelling water column processes in the North Sea, G. Radach, et al; seasonal fluxes across the sediment-water interface, and processes within sediments, D.B. Nedwell, et al; trace gases and air-sea exchanges, P.S. Liss, et al; the atmospheric distributions of trace metals, trace organics and nitrogen species over the North Sea, R. Chester, et al; processes influencing the fate of trace metals in the North Sea, J.D. Burton, et al; towards water quality models, J.M. Huthnance, et al; the North Sea project - an overview and the way forward, J.H. Simpson.
