Series: Elsevier Oceanography Series

The Elsevier Oceanography Series, founded in 1965, is a broad-based and well-respected series on all aspects of marine science. Particular attention is paid to in-depth studies of certain oceanographic processes, methods and regions. Recent volumes in the series cover aspects of chemical, biological and physical oceanography, modelling, operational oceanography, and in-depth regional studies.

All books in this series have a strong reference value, and vary from advanced level monographs to multi-author, edited volumes and graduate-level textbooks.
