Changing Asia-Pacific Marginal Seas Hardback
Edited by Chen-Tung Arthur Chen, Xinyu Guo
Part of the Atmosphere, Earth, Ocean & Space series
This book discusses temporal changes in six Asia-Pacific marginal seas and two west boundary currents in the Northwest Pacific.
Covering time scales varying from years to decades, it provides a comprehensive review of the long-term changes in various physical variables, including sea level, sea surface temperature, water mass index, current and transport, as well as local issues such as sea ice and tidal mixing, and the processes and dynamics that govern them.
The book also examines biogeochemical variables, such as nutrients, oxygen, pH, water transparency, ocean acidification, eutrophication and productivity, and explores future trends. Offering a holistic view of the changes that have occurred in the Asia-Pacific marginal seas and those that are likely to occur in the future, this book will appeal to readers from all fields of oceanography.
