Item description for The Sea Floor by Eugen Seibold & Wolfgang H. Berger...
The Sea Floor deals with the most important results achieved in Marine Geology over the last three decades. Relevant geophysical, geochemical, sedimentological and paleontological methods are shortly described. They should allow the reader to comment on new results about plate tectonics, marine sedimentation from the coasts to the deep sea, climatological aspects, paleoceanology and the use of the sea floor. The text tries to transmit to the reader the excitement of marine geological research both aboard and in modern laboratories. Basic mineralogical, geochemical, biological and other relevant data and a detailed list of books and symposia are given in an Appendix. The third corrected and revised edition contains an enlarged and updated list of references and some new figures.

Why was the 3rd edition published? Jun 5, 2001
The 3rd edition of this book, published in 1996, is identical to the 2nd edition published in 1993. The only difference I could find was the design of the cover page. If you already own a copy of the 2nd edition, you don't have to buy the newer edition because there is nothing new in the 3rd edition. Just don't be confused.
