191 HARDISTY, J. British Seas : An Introduction to the Oceanography and Resources of the North-west European Continental Shelf. First Edition in dustjacket
Routledge, London and New York, 1990, ISBN:0415035864 
HARDISTY, J. The British Seas : An Introduction to the Oceanography and Resources of the North-west European Continental Shelf. London and New York : Routledge, (1990). First Edition. Pp (6),vii-xiv,(2),3-272,(2). Illustrated. Maps. Index. 8vo, black cloth, silver lettering to spine. "Designed primarily as a student text, "The British Seas" is an introduction to the oceanography and resources of the region. It provides a review of the resources of the north-west European continental shelf together with a comprehensive description of the environment. Introducing the shelf region as if it were anew country, Jack Hardisty explores first its physical environment and the n summarizes the distribution and exploitation of resources from that environment. Part 1 - on the oceanography - covers the shape of the shelf, its geological history and its wave and tidal regimes. It also deals with the distribution and movement of sand and gravels. Part 2 - on the resources - looks at trade and shipping, and the hydrocarbon, fishing and seabed mining industries. It goes on to discuss wave and tidal power, and to consider the problem of pollution in terms of resource utilization. The industrial technology and the environmental potential of each resource are examined, and the economic and legislative restrictions are analyzed. The text is especially useful in integrating the physical and economic characteristics of the region and in explaining why some resources are over-exploited while others appear to be under-utilized." (Bibliofind). Contents : Part I. - The oceanography: 1. British seas: an overview; 2. The shape of the shelf; 3. Geological history; 4. The wave regime; 5. The tidal regime; 6. The oceanographic regime; 7. Modern shelf sediments. Part II. - The resources. 8. Trade and shipping; 9. Hydrocarbons; 10. Fishing; 11. Seabed mining; 12. Wave and tidalpower; 13. Waste disposal; 14.
