From the reviews: "The volume consistently conveys both the importance of the ocean in the global carbon cycle and the uncertainty of the oceanic response to global change. ! The stated objective of The IGBP Series, to present key results of the JGOFS project, is accomplished. ! The design of the book is very attractive, the type clear, and the figure size appropriate. ! this volume provides a valuable state of the art of ocean biogeochemistry for those interested in the carbon cycle or climate change." (Mary-Elena Carr, Ecology, Vol. 85 (7), 2004)
