This volume presented by Edward Carpenter and Douglas Capone is the result of their remarkable efforts in preparing the publication that would provide the industry with a single volume containing virtually all necessary technical info relating to the numerous aspects of the nitrogen cycle.

This publication is intended to present the results of the very latest technological advances and relevant researches conducted in the field of the ocean productivity, with particular emphasis being placed on the key role that the microbes play in the transformations of nitrogen, with excursion to the higher levels.

The main content of this volume is arranged in twenty-four chapters, starting with a brief general overview of both distribution and abundance of different nitrogen forms in various estuaries. This part of the publication provides readers with a thorough comparison of the cycling of nitrogen of various ecological systems within marine environment. The chemical distribution has been discussed there in the other chapter together with the methodology.

The book also covers the enzymology  of the starting steps of assimilation of the inorganic nitrogen. The closing chapter is mainly focusing on the application and philosophy of modeling treated as one of the investigative research methods in both open-ocean - and coastal environments...

This title was released to address the important aspects of the Dutch shipbuilding in the XVII century, which is a really inaccessible area of research. The problem is that the earliest written sources of relevant information appear only in the late 1600s. The whole wealth of the information presented by Nicolaes Witsen in his first work was a bit hidden under the formulation and quite chaotic structure.

It still remains the extremely valuable publication that needs and deserves careful attention of the readers, and this is what the author has tried to do within the present book. The main content of this volume has been arranged by the author in four big chapters; the first one is introductory, while the second chapter provides readers with the information on how the vessels are constructed in Holland of today, The third chapter of this work addresses the contracts used as the historical sources of information.

The last chapter of this title is conclusive in nature and summarizes the previous chapters. The text of the book has been expanded with the informative tables of comparison between shipbuilding formulas, technical factors of the early ships, key to the ship parts, and several informative drawings for better understanding. The Glossary of the relevant terminology has also been provided.

Makers' updates and company circulars provide another source of information for seafarers concerning shipboard equipment and new technology. In this research eight percent of seafarers were not aware, at all. of any company circulars or makers' updates being circulated to sea-staff in their current/most recent company. In relation to the responses to tins question, seafarer nationality played a particularly significant role.

Having encountered a problem with the operation of a piece of equipment the overwhelming majority of respondents would consult a manual. Additionally, around a half of all respondents would consult colleagues. Department, ship type, seafarer age and nationality, were all found to influence the responses offered to tins question. In relation to the main engine maneuvering system engineers were very confident about their knowledge and understanding with 83% self-rating their knowledge of this equipment as 'excellent'. Engineers were less confident about their knowledge of oily water separators however with only 40% claiming 'excellent' knowledge of tins equipment. Overall engineers were least confident about high voltage equipment and 37% of engineers self-rated their knowledge of this equipment as 'basic' or even 'zero'. Navigation officers were markedly more confident about their understanding of AIS and GPS than they were about their understanding of ARPA, GMDSS, and ECDIS. ECDIS was the equipment which officers were least confident about overall, with 9% self-rating their understanding of ECDIS as 'zero1 and a further 21% suggesting it was basic.

Respondents were more confident about ARPA than they were about GMDSS with four percent self-rating their knowledge of ARPA as basic compared with 13% self-rating their knowledge of GMDSS as 'basic'. Although only a quarter of seafarers had an input into the identification of their training needs, almost half of respondents were expected to pay towards their training. Nationality, ship type, department, and age, all impacted upon the responses of seafarers to this question. In relation to compensation for lost leave almost half our respondents stated that it was not usual for them to be compensated for leave time lost as a result of required training in relation to new shipboard technology...

The title is first of all intended to show the readers the ways of proper application of the common principles and mostly used tools of the network economics, for instance the problems of variational inequalities and complementarily, and studying of the large natural systems being exploited, particularly marine systems, at different levels, namely regional, continental and also global levels. The systems that have been addressed in this book, are actually being exposed to the changes in climate and to the globalization of the economy, i.e. the phenomenon first defined by O'Brien and Leichenko as the "double exposure".

The present volume has been organized in four major parts. The first part of the book is introducing the issues, discussing the marine ecosystems that are subject to the above mentioned double exposure, providing the required intro to the network theories, with particular attention being paid to the relationship between functions and structures, diversity of the terms and formalisms, as well as applications, and arbitrariness of the graphical representations, discussing the equilibrium vs dynamics issue, presenting the math instruments forming the necessary background for application of the network economics approach; they also introduce the notations and principles, convex optimization, and so many other important aspects.
