Chemical Oceanography, Volume 8 covers the progress in marine chemistry. The book discusses the influence of pressure on chemical processes in the sea; the geochemical ocean sections study; and the trace elements in sea water. The text also describes the chemistry of interstitial waters of deep sea sediments and the interpretation of deep sea drilling data; the hydrothermal fluxes in the ocean; and the natural water photochemistry. Oceanographers, chemists, and people involved in marine and atmospheric sciences will find the book invaluable.
