Ocean Margin Systems
Edited by Wefer, G., Billet, D., Hebbeln, D., Jorgensen, B. B., Schlüter, M. and Weering, T. C.E.V.
Ocean margins are the transitional zones between the oceans and continents.
They represent dynamic systems in which numerous processes shape the environment and
result in impacting the utilization and hazard potentials for humans. These processes are
influenced by a variety of steering mechanisms, from mountain building and climate on the
land to tectonics and sea-level fluctuations in ocean margins. This book examines various
aspects of regulation for the long-term development of ocean margins, of the impact of fluids
and of the dynamics of benthic life at and below the seafloor in ocean margin systems.
