Editorial Reviews

`important book ... In my review of the previous edition I described it as 'very readable, well-illustrated and informative', to which I would only add that this edition is also bang up-to-date. It is ideal for anyone who wants to find out more about the subject, and I reckon that even thoseworking as specialists in pollution will find it a useful source of guidance in matters outside their particular field of study.'John Wright, Ocean Challenge, 7(3) 1998
