The basic purpose of the book is unchanged. It is not designed as a compendium of methods of seawater analysis but consists of full working instructions of certain procedures used by the authors and their colleagues in the laboratory and at sea and found by them to be reliable and to have an adequate sensitivity and precision for most studies of marine ecology. The reason for using one approach in favour of another is not always stated, as often it was a matter of judgment and preference on the part of the authors. Some of the methods are taken directly from the literature with only the slight modifications of solution volumes and concentrations necessary for convenient shipboard use. In many instances, however, the original procedures have been greatly modified where this has been found to result in an increase of speed, precision, or operational simplicity. A number of the methods constitute a completely new application of analytical techniques to marine chemistry. Altho.....
