Seafloor Geomorphology as Benthic Habitat (2nd Edition)

16 days ago

GeoHab Atlas of Seafloor Geomorphic Features and Benthic Habitats


This book provides an updated synthesis of seabed geomorphology and benthic habitats. This new edition includes new case studies from all geographic areas and habitats that were not included in the previous edition, including the Arctic, Asia, Africa and South America. Using multibeam sonar, the benthic ecology of submarine features, such as fjords, sand banks, coral reefs, seamounts, canyons, mud volcanoes and spreading ridges is revealed in unprecedented detail. This timely release offers new understanding for researchers in Marine Biodiversity, environmental managers, ecologists, and more.


Key Features

  • Explores the relationships between seabed geomorphology, oceanography and biology
  • Provides global case studies which directly focus on habitats, including both biological and physical data
  • Describes ways to detect change in the marine environment (change in the condition of benthic habitats), a critical aspect for judging the performance of policies and legislation
