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. Series URL: [http://www.elsevier.com/locate/series/eos](http://www.elsevier.com/locate/series/eos) Benefits for contributing authors include: - international distribution and marketing - attractive bulk sale opportunities - 30% discount ON ALL BOOKS plus stand-alone CD-ROMS except multi-volume reference works. Depending on the subject coverage of a proposal we may also recommend publication in one of our other two book series - [Proceedings in Marine Science](/locate/series/pims) - [Developments in Marine Technology Series](/locate/series/dmt) Authors interested in submitting a book proposal for the series should contact: Jennifer Hele (Associate Acquisitions Editor) at E-mail: [j.hele@elsevier.com](mailto:j.hele@elsevier.com) ,,,,
Book Series: Polynyas: Windows to the World

Most recent volume


Volume 74. Polynyas: Windows to the World

Published: 22nd May 2007 Editors: Walker Smith, Jr. David Barber
Polynyas are relatively ice-free regions when compared to the areas around them, and have been suggested as being foci for energy transfer between the atmosphere and ocean, ice “factories”, and critical areas with respect to polar ecosystems and biogeochemical cycles. This volume presents an integrated, multidisciplinary review of polynyas in both the Arctic and Antarctic. It emphasizes the meteorology, ice dynamics, oceanography, biological components, chemistry, and modeling of these systems, particularly with respect to their roles in polar processes and distributions. The various interactions within polynyas, particularly between the physical forcing and biological responses, is emphasized, as are the potential changes in polynyas that might occur under a climate regime that is rapidly changing. The authors of the reviews are leaders among their respective countries in polynya research, and all are internationally recognized.
