Not only does Coastal and Deep Ocean Pollutionillustrate the contemporary scientific aspect of ocean climate post 20th century pollution, but it also covers marine environments from a global perspective. This book starts with a discussion of the high impact cases of marine pollution including black tides, red tides, alien species and dead –anoxic- waters. The next two sections cover organic and inorganic pollutants affecting the coastal and deep ocean environments. Chapter authors from all over the world will contribute to the book, giving the text a well-rounded view of environmental conservation, oceans and sustainability.
