What role does the ocean play in global climate change? Although
not fully understood, there is general agreement that it is
significant. Therefore, the scientific community has initiated
large-scale research programs based on studies of the ocean and its
relation to global climate and climate-related processes. This
volume provides brief summaries and reports on the progress of the
major oceanographic research programs. It looks at both programs
that study processes that occur over periods ranging from days to
hundreds of years--the contemporary system--and those that seek to
understand long-term variations ranging from thousands to millions
of years--the geological perspective.
