Advances in the field of marine geoscience through the medium of deep-ocean drilling have been rapid. The papers in this volume reflect the excitement of findings from recent legs of the Ocean Drilling Program. The Book also provides invaluable syntheses of the vast quantity of drilling information collected over a period of more than 20 years. Together they provide a detailed picture of the evolution of the oceans since the late Mesozoic. The book is dedicated to Robert Kidd, who was Professor of Marine Geology at the University of Wales, Cardiff and was closely involved with both the planning and implementation of the Ocean Drilling Program strategy.
