@qu:Useful outlines preview the main topics covered for each chapter. References are extensive, totaling about thirty-six pages, including references to other review articles. An approximate balance of topics is drawn from both poles, with efficient use of figures and tables. @source:--BIOMASS NEWSLETTER @qu:Polar oceanographers have heretofore been unable to turn to a book in which our current knowledge is synthesized.
