The papers on the basic Symposia of the Joint Oceanographic meeting have been provided through authors who were invited to accommodate issues of huge interdisciplinary curiosity. jointly they gave a worthwhile account of the current kingdom of marine learn, its proQlems and power. There turns out advantage in publishing them in a single quantity and we're thankful to the authors who kindly agreed to organize their papers for booklet. This has taken a while (and no longer all authors chanced on it attainable) yet we are hoping the ensuing quantity remains to be indicative of traits in sleek oceanography. really obvious is the best way the utilized features are starting to play a extra very important half regardless of concerns in regards to the results of the legislation of the ocean on our freedom to make observations. we're specially thankful to the 4 authors who agreed to provide lectures summarising the paintings of their personal box which was once said on the meeting. We additionally desire to thank the opposite authors, in addition to all fascinated about the meeting and with the creation of this volume.
