The papers on the normal Symposia of the Joint Oceanographic meeting have been provided by way of authors who have been invited to house subject matters of extensive interdisciplinary curiosity. jointly they gave a worthy account of the current kingdom of marine study, its proQlems and power. There turns out advantage in publishing them in a single quantity and we're thankful to the authors who kindly agreed to organize their papers for booklet. This has taken a while (and no longer all authors stumbled on it attainable) yet we are hoping the ensuing quantity remains to be indicative of traits in smooth oceanography. rather visible is the way the utilized elements are starting to play a extra vital half even with concerns concerning the results of the legislations of the ocean on our freedom to make observations. we're in particular thankful to the 4 authors who agreed to provide lectures summarising the paintings of their personal box which was once pronounced on the meeting. We additionally desire to thank the opposite authors, in addition to all all for the meeting and with the creation of this volume.

CCD fluctuations since Aptian time in the South Atlantic ocean (average values from Argentine and Cape basins). y. MODEL OF THE EVOLUTION OF THE SOUTH ATLANTIC 27 The paleo-CCD curve of figure 12, which tries to give a rough approximation of the general evolution of the CCD in the Argentine and Cape basins, will thus be the basis of our attempt at reconstructing the paleofacies maps. Although this curve will undoubtedly be modified, it will allow us to demonstrate the basic methodology of reconstruction.
