While everyone agrees that the oceans are the most important
part of the earth's life support system, and that their
environmental management is necessary if serious problems are to be
prevented -- little action is taken (or enforced) because too few
believe that effective ocean environmental management can be
profitable as well as responsible. Written by a leading authority
in the field, this book provides a complete non-technical survey of
the problems of ocean pollution and the promise of effective ocean
management. Discusses -- in an unbiased manner -- all important
aspects of ocean environmental management: the important functions
of the oceans; the environmental impacts of ocean pollution in
physical, biological, and economic terms; the man-made and natural
sources of pollution; methods for the prevention of pollution;
effective management of ocean use and ocean resources; containment
and clean up of pollution; and planning of the long-term effective
management of ocean use in an environmentally safe manner. For
anyone concerned with the maintenance of the world's oceans as a
resource, including general readers and students curious about
environmental developments in the oceans.
