Review quote

Useful outlines preview the main topics covered for each chapter. References are extensive, totaling about thirty-six pages, including references to other review articles. An approximate balance of topics is drawn from both poles, with efficient use of figures and tables.
Polar oceanographers have heretofore been unable to turn to a book in which our current knowledge is synthesized. Polar Oceanography is a successful attempt to fill this void in the scientific literature, and it will be welcomed by researchers, instructors, and stuents of the high-latitude oceans.
