NETTLESHIP, D.N., D.C. GORDON, C.F.M. LEWIS, and M.P. LATREMOUILLE, eds. Voyage of Discovery : Fifty Years of Marine Research at Canada's Bedford Institute of Oceanography. A commemorative volume in celebratio of the 50th anniversary of the Bedford Institute of Ocenography, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada, 1962-2012. Edited by D.N. Nettleship, D.C. Gordon, C.F.M. Lewis, andM.P. Latremouille. Graphics and layout design: Francis G. Kelly. Dartmouth : The Bedford Institute of Oceanography, Oceans Association, 2014. Pp. (1),ii-xii,(2),1-444. Illustrated, occasionally in colour. Double column. 4to, illustrated blue glossy paper covered boards, white lettering to front cover and spine. "'Voyage of Discovery' summarizes BIO research results on the oceanography of Arctic and Eastern Canada. In a series of 48 papers by pastand present research staff from all oceanographic disciplines at BIO, the history of Canadian oceanography before BIO and a broad cross section of the Institute’s work spanning five decades are featured with particular emphasis on contributions to Canadian and global understanding/management of themarine environment. [...] 'Voyage of Discovery' is the most extensive over view of the history and scientific accomplishments of the Bedford Instituteof Oceanography under one cover: Historical Roots, Arctic Studies, Ocean L ife, Ocean Circulation and Chemistry, Hydrography and Seabed Mapping, Geological Oceanography, Fisheries-Ecosystems-Aquaculture, Marine Contamination,Technology and Instrument Development, Energy Developments, BIO and the La w of the Sea, and The BIO Experience. This book’s well-written and illustrated accounts will appeal to a broad readership from professional oceanographers and environmental/resource managers and decision-makers to marine science students and lay persons interested in the Arctic and Atlantic oceans, and their present status and future welfare." - from the rear cover.
