Reviews

@qu:The book is well written and contains informative tables and figures. I congratulate Dr. H. Kunzendorf for a timely book of current interest. The book is recommended to all marine scientists, geochemists, and explorationists. @source: Ore Geology Reviews @qu:Under his able guidance and editorship, Dr. H. Kunzendorf has assembled a first-class, up-to-date volume covering the main topics of this discipline ... we applaud this book and Dr. Kunzendorf. @source: Marine Mining @qu:... this book is a concise review of the principles and problems of exploring for ocean floor mineral desposits. It will be of value to anyone working in this field, and of interest to explorationists in general. @source: Geophysics
