book of Oceania: Paddling the Pacific by Paul Theroux. 14 For his postgraduate studies, W.C. Clarke and R.R. Thaman, two distinguished Pacific Island geographers with a keen interest in ocean resource management, advised Joeli to do his research in the area of marine resource use.

He was easily convinced because of his childhood experience and his interest in the fishers of Qoma Island, a fishing village near to where he was teaching at the time.

The book provides up-to-date scientific information on the ocean life of Pacific salmon as well as discussions about future research needs.

It will be an invaluable source of information and a standard reference for scientists, teachers, students, and anyone interested in Pacific salmon. It is no longer possible to summarize adequately the status of all disciplines of oceanography in a single book.

Indeed, it is very difficult to summarize even a single discipline in one book. An excellent perspective on the post-World War II evolution of physical oceanography has been published by Warren and Wunsch ().

The future of ENSO is the subject of a new book published by the American Geophysical Union. With 21 chapters written by 98 authors from 58 research institutions in 16 countries, the volume covers the latest theories, models, and observations, and explores the challenges of forecasting El Niño and La Niña.

The Pacific Ocean alone blankets. The National Science Foundation (NSF) tasked the U.S. physical oceanographic community in to evaluate the current status of research in physical oceanography and to identify future opportunities and infrastructure needs.

A workshop was held in Monterey, California from Decemberand was attended by 46 scientists representing the. Chemical Oceanography is fundamentally interdisciplinary.

The chemistry of the ocean is closely tied to ocean circulation, climate, the plants and animals that live in the ocean, and the exchange of material with the atmosphere, cryosphere, continents, and mantle. UNESCO-IOC believes that science in support of sustainable management is the cornerstone of the preservation of our ocean and its resources.

Its Nutrients and Coastal Impacts Research Programme focuses on interactions between climate, nutrients, and coastal dynamics, and the challenges and opportunities that resulting ecosystem changes pose for tourism, institutions and governance. "The book contains 14 chapters, based on studies of geophysics and marine geology, that deal with the Mesozoic and Cenozoic evolution of the margins of the Pacific Ocean The 26 authors are experienced and well-respected geologists and geophysicists.

This well-written and well-illustrated book could serve as a text for a graduate course. Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR) - or "NOAA Research" - provides the research foundation for understanding the complex systems that support our planet.

Working in partnership with other organizational units of the NOAA, a bureau of the Department of Commerce, NOAA Research enables better forecasts, earlier warnings for natural disasters, and a greater understanding of the Earth.
