This is a bibliography of 919 abstracts covering three major areas: the historical traditions of the sea; the economic and political realities of those industries and organizations directly affected by the sea; and the development of new technologies to explore the sea and to exploit its resources. In the first are articles such as those about the size and nature of ironclad vessels during the Civil War; the whaling industry in New England and the Pacific Northwest; Viking voyages and settlements; and the history of various naval fleets. In the second area fall commercial trading and shipping ventures, the shipbuilding industry, fishing fleets, water sports industries, and the size and impact of the modern navy. The third area includes all the latest research and development technologies such as undersea robotics, tidal/energy projects, fish-farming and aquaculture, and the latest naval military technologies.
