Synopsis of Changing Ocean Carbon Cycle: A Midterm Synthesis of the Joint Global Ocean Flux Study

The role of ocean processes in global ecology and their wider implications for climate change.

Booknews

The Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS) is a multidisciplinary program involving an international panel of scientists which addresses the interactions between the biology, chemistry, and physics of marine systems, with emphasis on the transport and transformations of carbon within the ocean and across its boundaries. This volume, based on selected contributions presented at the JGOFS Scientific Symposium held at Villefranche-sur-Mer, France in 1995, synthesizes JGOFS science and its achievements to date. The volume's six sections include an introduction; carbon exchange processes and their variability; regional-scale analysis and integration; global-scale analysis and integration; future challenges; and conclusions. Of likely interest to those seeking an overview of the role of ocean processes in Earth system science and their wider implications on climate change. Annotation c.
