Sedimentation in the World Ocean: With Emphasis On the Nature, Distribution and Behavior of Marine Suspensions
The World Oceans covers the greater part of the earth’s surface and is 2.5 times as large as the area of land. Nearly 84 percent of the southern hemisphere is blanketed by the oceanic waters. The continents can be thought of as huge islands in the ocean. Therefore, the oceanic processes of matter and energy transformation are of global significance. Originally presented as a series of lectures by Alexander P. Lisitzin.
