About this book

The monograph presented to foreign readers has been prepared by the famous Soviet investigators of processes of geochemistry and sedimentation in the Mediterranean Sea. For more than 20 years E.M. Emelyanov has examined the recent sedimentation of the Mediterranean Sea and K.M. Shimkus has studied the Quaternary and the earlier sediĀ­ mentation of the area. The authors, scientific workers from the P.P. Shirshov Institute of Oceanology, USSR Academy of Sciences (Atlantic and Southern DepartĀ­ ments), took part not only in numerous cruises on oceanographic vessels of the USSR, but in the study of cores of the deep-sea drilling on R/V "Glomar Challenger". A great number of scientific papers and some books devoted to the processes of sedimentation and geochemistry of the Mediterranean Sea were written by them. Although the scientific interests of the authors are not only limited to these questions, I should like to emphasise these aspects of their scientific activity when introducing this book. The Mediterranean Sea is a suitable natural laboratory for solving a number of principal problems of marine sedimentation and lithogenesis.

Reviews

`In this book is everything you could ever want to know about Mediterranean Sea sediments... At last, we have a good account of Soviet work and thoughts pertaining to the Mediterranean, the first in a long time... An incredible array of data is presented, and it is these data that are the strength of this work...a remarkable work in terms of the information presented and of a review on the marine geology and geochemistry of Mediterranean Sea sediments.'
Sedimentology, 1987
`... Geochemistry and Sedimentology of the Mediterranean Sea will be a useful book to anyone working in the Mediterranean Basin.'
Newsletter, 21:4 (1988)
