Get this from a library! Critical perspectives on the oceans. [Krista West;] -- Examines contemporary issues on the preservation of the oceans and sea life, covering such topics as global warming, water pollution, and declines in fish population and diversity. The global ocean is at risk, so is the marine biodiversity inhabiting this unique realm. Since the origin of the anthropocene, a myriad of anthropogenic impacts have been assaulting the environmental quality of the oceans and the abundance of marine living resources. Each contributing author provides a novel perspective, with the book as a.
Analogous connections and interactions between scales are arising in issues of societal concern, often centered around the increasing recognition that many issues previously regarded as regional now require a global perspective. Anthropogenic pollutants have reached the open ocean and are known to be transported far from their sources. Book Review: Global warming and oceans, a 21st century perspective Posted on 22 November by John Abraham. A new book summarizing much of what we know about oceans and the role they play in shaping our Earth's climate was just published. For researchers like myself, we often become fixated with learning the newest facts or reading the latest studies in our fields.

To solve this global problem, we must understand plastic composition, physical forms, uses, transport, and fragmentation into microplastics (and nanoplastics). Plastic debris/microplastics arise from land disposal, wastewater treatment, tire wear, paint failure, textile washing, and at‐sea by: 1.

This book explains how our oceans continue to support and influence life in important ways: by providing the largest global source of protein in the form of fish populations, by creating and influencing weather systems, and by absorbing waste streams such as airborne by: 1.
Our oceans are vital for the regulation of climate, and with global warming and decreasing land area, they have become increasingly important as the source of food, energy in the form of oil and gas, and for their mineral wealth.
Oceans also form a key part of the biogeochemical cycles of carbon, nitrogen, and other elements critical to s: The prospects for global ocean governance. The political and scientific approaches. The differences between the modern and post-modern approaches. The implementation of ocean uses.
What frameworks have been created to enable rational and sustainable resource exploitationAuthor: Adalberto Vallega. The book then explores the biophysical commonalities between landscapes and seascapes, as well as the habitats, in each realm. It covers marine fisheries; marine protected areas; oceans as a commodity, as part of the global commons, as a biophysical living trust for which we are the trustees and the children of today and beyond are the beneficiaries; and more.

The goal of this book is to explore how human population. Predicting Future Oceans: Sustainability of Ocean and Human Systems Amidst Global Environmental Change provides a synthesis of our knowledge of the future state of the oceans.

Managing Ocean Environments in a Changing Climate summarizes the current state of several threats to the global oceans. What distinguishes this book most from previous works is that this book begins with a holistic, global-scale focus for the first several chapters and then provides an example of how this approach can be applied on a regional.

Correlations between satellite‐derived chlorophyll and simulated dissolved iron confirm that productivity is linked to ice shelf basal melt.

As the chair of the Anthropocene Working Group, you’re well-positioned to answer the question, what is the Anthropocene?. It is a concept improvised by the Nobel Prize-winning chemist Paul Crutzen, who worked on the ozone layer.
He was in a meeting in Mexico in the year when people were talking about global change and environmental change, and the Holocene epoch—the post-glacial epoch. The book begins with the role of rhodolith/ma ë rl beds in modern oceans, with chapters on natural history and biodiversity around ma ë rl beds, rhodoliths as climatic archives, modern day threats of ocean acidification on ma ë rl and economic importance.

Inspired by the work of the renowned fisheries scientist Daniel Pauly, this book provides a detailed overview of ecosystem-based management of fisheries. It explores the complex and interdisciplinary nature of the subject by bringing together contributions from some of the world's leading fisheries scientists, managers and s: 1.
Concern over the deterioration of the oceans has generated a demand for a system able to assess ocean health globally, and approaches to assess ocean health globally and an observing system delivering the data to support this assessment are now being developed.
In parallel with public health systems, a system to assess ocean health should evaluate the occurrence and severity of a set of. Genre/Form: Electronic books: Additional Physical Format: Print version: Balliett, James Fargo.
Oceans: environmental issues, global perspectives. Oxfordshire. Diverse natural and social science research is needed to support policies to recover and sustain healthy oceans. While a wide variety of expert-led prioritization initiatives have identified research themes and priorities at national and regional scale, over the past several years there has also been a surge in the number of scanning exercises that have identified important environmental Cited by: Parts I, II and III of the book bring out the global perspective on ocean governance.
Various case studies put forward the interconnectivity between regional seas in terms of political, socioeconomic, cultural, and especially ecological linkages. Moving away from the idea of ocean space as an extension of terrestrial space and its associated “protocols of measuring and distributing surfaces” (Laloëp.
2), this perspective is perhaps least amenable to governance and potentially conflicting with a purely spatial and rational perspective reliant solely on physical data and Cited by: 2.Rhodolith beds are recognized internationally as a unique ecosystem, and they are the focus of this interdisciplinary book.
These marine beds occur worldwide, from the tropics to the poles, ranging in depth from intertidal to deep subtidal habitats and they are also represented in extensive fossil deposits.Summary.
Written by Chris Maser, one of the architects of the sustainability movement, Interactions of Land, Ocean and Humans: A Global Perspective explores a critical number of the myriad aspects that comprise the great, reciprocal feedback loops between the mountain peaks, the deep sea, and everywhere in between.
Maser’s exploration of these connections gives us the tools required to open.
