Reviews

CHOICE, December 2009: "The second edition of this classic, now published in both print [Nov 2009] and electronic formats, continues the tradition of the first—it is the best encyclopedic resource on the subject of ocean studies. The newer articles focus on climate, remote sensing, data modeling, and the economic and political aspects of ocean studies. The electronic edition reviewed here includes an interactive listing of related articles that connects to ScienceDirect; this feature is extremely helpful for those interested in finding additional information on the topics. The electronic edition is easy to navigate and allows users to look at a summary text, the full PDF article, and the related articles. Graphs, charts, formula drawings, and pictures load quickly and are very legible. This encyclopedia will be indispensable for libraries supporting programs in oceanography. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers." — J. C. Stachacz, Wilkes University
