Abstract


  • The oceans dominate the globe spatially, covering approximately 72 per

    cent of its surface area. These extensive marine spaces are critical to the

    global environment and human survival in numerous ways - they are vital

    to the global nutrient cycling, represent a key repository and supporter

    of biological diversity on a world scale, and playa fundamental role in

    driving the global atmospheric system. Moreover, the oceans continue to

    provide a critical source of food through/fisheries and aquaculture, are

    an increasingly significant source of energy resources, and underpin the

    global economy through sea-borne trade.
