Abstract

This publication deals with the role of the oceans in creating a habitable planet, and with the intimate link between water and life. It discusses the effects of the oceans on our environment, from the composition of the atmosphere, through their role in the cycles of ice-ages and warm interglacial periods such as our own. It deals with the oceans as a resource, of food and fuel, and as a provider of 'ecosystem' services.
