The Science of Ocean Pollution By Frank R. Spellman Cover Image


The marine environment supports nearly half of the universal primary production, and a great share of which drives global fisheries. The Science of Ocean Pollution is written and presented in the author's characteristic conversational style and provides comprehensive coverage of the current situation regarding pollution in the world's oceans. Even though our welfare is intricately linked, interconnected with the sea and its natural resources, humans have substantially altered the face of the ocean within only a few centuries. The face of today's sea is quite apparent, obvious and visible; it floats. This book examines pollution runoff, plastics, oil spills and other pollutants that float in our seas as well as methods to best remediate these issues.
