Oceanographic processes of coral reefs : physical and biological links in the Great Barrier Reef

Author: Eric Wolanski
Publisher: Boca Raton : CRC Press, ©2001.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Drawing from data on coral reefs in Australia, Indonesia, Thailand, and the Philippines, these 20 chapters emphasize the multi-disciplinary processes that have emerged as the dominant forces shaping and controlling the ecosystem. A CD-ROM features graphics, video clips, and computer visualizations of linked physical, sedimentological, and biologica.
