Expensive, but very good May 5 2013
By Compulsive Reader - Published on
Format: Hardcover
As someone who is concerned by sub-standard ships and poor shipping practices, I applaud any work that addresses the critical issues of marine pollution and damage. Accidental oil and chemical spills and operational discharge, the transfer of invasive alien species (ballast water and on ship hulls),the release of biocides (toxic chemicals used in antifouling paints), the dumping of garbage and sewage, air pollution (sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and carbon dioxide emissions), and so on are very real problems in our world. This book is an excellent - and thorough - introduction to the topic, and I recommend it.
