The Deep Sea Bed is a collection of papers dealing with the physics, chemistry and biology of the deep sea bed, an important area of marine sedimentary geology. The contributions cover all aspects of the chemical and environmental influences on deposits in the benthic environment. The book also covers the margins of the benthic environment - the continental slope, including both passive margins and subduction zones. The contributions cover aspects of this subject in a wide range of disciplines, and consequently, this book should be of interest to researchers in both the biology and the geology of the deep sea bed.
