BOOK REVIEW • Global Ocean Science: Toward an Integrated Approach

Daniel S. Schwartz
First Paragraph

Periodically, the ocean sciences community undertakes a serious contemplation of past accomplishments and future efforts and research directions. These reviews have produced a few landmark publications that have provided both useful insight and, occasionally, inspiration for our national marine scientific endeavor. Collectively, they leave a legacy that reveals the evolution of consensus, organization, and method during the ongoing maturing of this relatively young science. Global Ocean Science: Toward an Integrated Approach is one such document.
