              Francotheque seeks to provide a French-language resource for undergraduate students of French. Direct access to contemporary French culture and society is offered through carefully selected authentic texts and a comprehensive overview of France and the French is provided under si...x broad headings - history, multicultural society, media, the arts, science and technology, the Francophone world - through press articles, historical documents, photographs, posters, advertisements, statistics, poems and songs. Each section starts with an introduction. The authentic texts are accompanied by vocabulary notes, and where appropriate, explanations filling in cultural background. One of the features of the book is the sujets de reflexion , which provide pre-reading stimulus, thus suggesting a particular context of focus from which to approach many of the contexts.

              Provides comprehensive coverage of the evolution of ocean basins and their structure. This second edition explores how the 'hot springs' of the oceanic ridges cycle chemical elements between seawater and oceanic crust. It examines sediment distributions to demonstrate how sedimen...ts can preserve a record of past climatic and sea-level changes.

              'Seawater' has been substantially updated in this second edition to take account of recent developments in marine science. Sections dealing with difficult physical and chemical concepts have been developed on the basis of feedback from the first edition, making this an ideal lear...ning tool for oceanography students. Chapter 1 summarizes the special properties of water and the role of the oceans in the hydraulic cycle. The distribution of temperature and salinity in the oceans and how they influence water density and movements is then discussed. Light and sound in seawater are considered next, along with some uses of acoustics. These are followed by an examination of the composition and behaviour of dissolved constituents, including such topics as residence times, the control of pH, and redox relationships. Finally, the history of seawater and its role in global cycles is reviewed, with special reference to climatic change and the CO2 problem.
