Item description for Encyclopedia of Marine Sciences by Hanneke J.G. Baretta-Bekker...

The multidisciplinary character of this Encyclopedia ofMarine Sciences (biology, chemistry, geology, physics in oceanography) is reflected in some 1980 up-to-date alphabetically listed keywords, and many illustrations, to give scientists, teachers, and students a helpful and time-saving aid when studying marine scientific literature. The brief explanation of the concepts, terminology and methods makes this book more valuable than just a glossary or dictionary.

Reviews - What do customers think about Encyclopedia of Marine Sciences?

Good thing in a small package  Jan 31, 2002
While no book of this size can completely cover such a broad topic area this book makes a serious try. The authors did a good job and enclosed as much information as they could in less than 400 5*8 inch pages. The definitions include terms from marine biology, physical, chemical, geological and biological oceanography. With about 1800 terms, many of them cross referenced, I have only failed to find what I was looking for a couple of times. There are generous illustrations, and I don't think it could have been more visual given the size. The term entries seem a bit lopsided with some things being given more coverage and others merely touched on. I think that maybe the editors should have caught this, or perhaps two volumes, one for biology and one for the rest.

All in all this encyclopedia would be useful to anyone interested in the multi-disciplined nature of marine science.
