The sea floor : an introduction to marine geology by Eugen Seibold( Book )

50 editions published between 1982 and 2018 in English and held by 1,896 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book deals with the most important results achieved in marine geology over the last three decades. Relevant geophysical, geochemical, sedimentological and paleontological methods are briefly described. Information on new results from plate tectonics, marine sedimentation from the coasts to the deep sea, climatological aspects, paleoceanography and the use of the sea floor is presented. The authors attempt to communicate the excitement of marine geological research - both on research vessels 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 second edition of "The Sea Floor" is an updated version with many new aspects and illustrations
Ocean : reflections on a century of exploration by Wolfgang H Berger( )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 1,766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The past one hundred years of ocean science have been distinguished by dramatic milestones, remarkable discoveries, and major revelations. This book is a clear and lively survey of many of these amazing findings. Beginning with a brief review of the elements that define what the ocean is and how it works-from plate tectonics to the thermocline and the life within it-Wolf H. Berger places current understanding in the context of history. Essays treat such topics as beach processes and coral reefs, the great ocean currents off the East and West Coasts, the productivity of the sea, and the geologic revolution that changed all knowledge of the earth in the twentieth century
Patterns of change in earth evolution : report of the Dahlem Workshop on Patterns of Change in Earth Evolution, Berlin, 1983, May 1-6 by Dahlem Workshop on Patterns of Change in Earth Evolution( Book )

Dissolution of deep-sea carbonates( Book )

Climate development and history of the North Atlantic realm by Hanse Conference on Climate and History( )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The global environment is changing rapidly under the impact of human activities. An important element in this change is related to global climate modification. Experts from the natural and social sciences with a strong interest in history discussed common topics of great interest to society. Can the study of climate and history help in devising strategies for coping with this change? What might be the type of information most useful in this context? What are the pitfalls awaiting the unwary? These and similar questions were discussed during a four-day workshop. The resulting proceedings contain comprehensive papers of broad interest, thematic back-ground papers and reports of study groups. Apart from scientists, the papers should interest graduate students and lecturers
The South Atlantic : present and past circulation by G Wefer( )

2 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book presents results of recent projects in oceanography and marine geosciences (e.g. WOCE, JGOFS, PAGES, ODP) regarding present and past circulation in the South Atlantic. The objective of the book is to integrate results from both oceanographic and geological studies. As the connecting link between the Antarctic and the North Atlantic, the South Atlantic plays a crucial role with regard to the heat budget of the North Atlantic and to the biogeochemical budget of the global ocean. New results from studies of meridional water mass and heat transports are presented. The central theme of geological investigations is the reconstruction of current and productivity systems in the South Atlantic during the late Quaternary
Abrupt Climatic Change : Evidence and Implications by W. H Berger( )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our motivation for calling a conference on climatic change was to stimulate interdisciplinary exchange between researchers in various fields concerned with climatic research, which include meteorology, oceanography, limnology, palynology, glaciology, dendrochronology, and climate modeling. The philosophy behind this attempt at cross fertilization is much the same as that of previous conferences on cli matic change in the NATO-series ("Climatic variations and variability, facts and theories", Berger, 1981; "Milankovitch and climate", Berger et al., 1984). The past is the key to the range of future possibilities. It is for this reason that we stressed history and case studies in convening the present symposium on abrupt climatic change, without however forget ting that modeling, conceptual and mathematical, ultimately provides the understanding necessary for prediction. We attempted to strike a bal ance between these complementary aspects of current climatological re search, aiming at a symposium situated in scope about halfway between "Climate in Earth history" (Berger and Crowell, 1982) and "Climate pro cesses and climate sensitivity" (Hansen and Takahashi, 1984). We con centrated, therefore, on the last 20,000 years, where the time-scales are potentially good enough to document rapid change
