Item description for The Organic Carbon Cycle in the Arctic Ocean by Rüdiger Stein...
To understand the global oceanic carbon budget and related climate change, exact measurements of organic carbon flux in all oceans environments, especially the continental margins, are crucial. In fact, data have been available for some time on organic carbon sources, pathways, and burial for most of the world's oceans, with the notable exception of the Arctic. With this book, the editors remedy this gap in knowledge, presenting an overview of organic-carbon sources, pathways, and burial of the circum-Arctic continental margin and deep-sea areas. Data from each Arctic shelf and basin are collated, presented in common and parallel formats, and related to the global carbon cycle. The book is suitable for lecturers, graduate students as well as scientists interested in the organic-carbon-cycle and Arctic Ocean (paleo-)environment.

A must-read for anyone interested in Arctic environment Aug 26, 2005
This book is a comprehensive source of information about not only the organic carbon-cycle, but the climate, topography, geological past, geography and marine ecology of this region. The accompanied pictures and illustrations are truly wonderful and very helpful. The sections written by the leading scientists provide a wealth of knowledge to anyone interested in Arctic, especially keeping the accelerated environmental changes in perspective. Also, the compilation is so well done (with all the necessary introductions), that this book becomes an enjoyable read for anyone. I borrowed this book from the library, but was so impressed that I am going to buy it now for myself.
