The data on this CD-ROM set represent the work of a large number of individuals in a number of Institutions too numerous to name. We thank all these individuals for their contributions and their patience as we worked together to produce the material for this CD-ROM set. We also thank the Officers and crew of the R/V A.v.Humboldt and the R/V Johan Hjort for their excellent support during the Workshop-at-Sea.
