But then comes the wind and the storm, driving them out even further across the cold North Sea...
Red tide occurrences and hypoxia are the problems in the worldwide sea and lakes but they are not settled. These phenomena bring about a diminution of fishery significantly. Red tides and hypoxia are considered to be induced by eutrophication. The soluble and particle nutrient compounds that contain nitrogen and phosphorus are considered to induce such eutrophication. But the number of red tide occurrences per year in Japanese bays fluctuates significantly in these 40 years in spite of cutting nutrients from the basin by developing sewage treatment. Are there any other considerable factors which induce red tides? A dam construction is a possible factor to induce red tides and hypoxia. The equation that expresses the increasing process of dissolved oxygen concentration in the water body was obtained by our experiments and was found to be expressed by one simple equation. Hypoxia is estimated to be occurred by three factors that are thermocline, pycnocline and the obtained equation. The sea areas related to Red tides and Hypoxia in this book are Baltic Sea, Black Sea in Europe, Chesapeake Bay, Lake Erie in United State and many bays in Japan.
I read somewhere that the decision to emigrate comes from a need to breathe. The hope of a better life is stronger than any other feeling.

Global sea levels have risen significantly through the 20th century.These rises will accelerate through the 21st century and beyond because of Climate change and global warming. Due to the sea level rise, the Indian Ocean Islands in general and the Bay of Bengal in particular are experiencing the largest relative increase and flood risk.The number of people who experience sea level rise are also affected by other factors,such as increasing population within the coastal flood plain.Therefore in this book an attempt has been made to highlight the adverse impact of sea level rise on the people of coastal odisha. Since coastal population are already large and growing rapidly in Odisha, this book is an important one to understand various range of climatic effects including an acceleration in sea level rise.

Cairo, 1909. The murder capital of the world, where deaths are two a piastre. But the death of an effendi? That is something different. Effendis – the Egyptian elite – are important. Especially if – in a country ruled by foreigners – they happen to be foreign. Gareth Owen, the Mamur Zapt, is called in to investigate. But is he the right man to be investigating? In some countries, if someone goes for a walk – or a boat ride – with the Head of the Secret Police and doesn’t come back, it’s best not to ask questions. And powerful people might have preferred Tvardovsky dead. As the maverick financier said, before going on the shooting party, there were still crocodiles in Egypt. Of all kinds. And perhaps the place to look for them was Crocodilopolis, the ancient City of the Crocodiles, where the financiers were to hold their meeting. It is when the crocodiles start co-operating, said Tvardovsky, that you really have to watch out…
Dr. Firoozfar started out to explain the coastal changes in the southern Caspian Sea due to a recent rise in water level, and this led him into many avenues, including the reasons for sea level changes in this landlocked sea, and what effects – including modification to the ‘normal’ seismicity of the area - there were that resulted from the phenomenon. To follow his process of discovery, piecing together a jigsaw of academic sources, the reader will need to follow the text, but suffice it to say that the conclusions are novel and striking. They will be of interest to all manner of Earth Scientists and Civil Engineers alike. Prof. Edward Bromhead
Advent of 21st century and globalization increases the importance of oceans because almost 80% to 90% trade travel through sea. Though security of ocean was important in past but now security of oceans is major concern of states. Maritime means related to ocean so maritime security means, security on, in and from the sea.

The parasites affecting commonly noticed snakes and mugger crocodiles were detailed along with pictures. Endoparasitic treatment-trials were revealed in Rat snakes with regard to the usage of ivermectin as well as Fenbendazole. Ectoparasitic treatment-trials were done in Rat snakes using herbal preparations. The microbes as well as antibiotic sensitivity tests carried out were detailed in pythons. The restraining gadgets were designed and applied in poisonous snakes like Russell's vipers and Indian Cobras. Collection of blood samples from mugger crocodiles was detailed by cardiocentesis and/or supra-occipital plexus technique.Further, the management related features pertaining to these reptiles reared under captive conditions were also presented in details.
