Advances in the Science and Technology of Ocean Management
Hance D. Smith
Psychology Press, 1992 - Science - 240 pages
The last two decades have witnessed unprecedented developments in marine science and technology. Large scale, international, long-term scientific programs have emerged for monitoring the state of the ocean environment, and the rapid development of the offshore oil industry has provided the technological means for a range of other maritime developments.
Advances in the Science and Technology of Ocean Managementreviews key developments in the field of marine science and technology, with a focus on long term issues. Three major themes are developed throughout the book: the key importance of technical developments in ocean management; the application of these developments to specific sea uses ranging from fish farming to the deep sea disposal of industrial waste; and the long term general issues raised and to some extent solved by science and technology.
