Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (volume 9)


With the development of the PHYCEMED (PHYsics and CHEmistry of the MEDiterranean) programme since 1981 and the organization of two cruises in the Western Mediterranean basin in april 1981 and september–october 1983, several objectives have been defined for budgeting the pollution processes occurring in the water column and at the water-air and water-sediment interfaces.
