BOOK REVIEW • Addendum to "The Oceanography Text Pattern: A Review and Comparison of Introductory Oceanography Texts"

Richard W. Spinrad
First Paragraph

Subsequent to the publication of the Review of Oceanography texts last year (Spinrad, 1996), The Oceanography Society was contacted by two authors. In one case we were asked to include a previously overlooked text, and in the other case, the author was concerned that the text which had been provided by their publisher was not the most recent college-level version. Respectively, these two texts, reviewed here as an addendum to the original assessment (and using the original criteria for review), are
