Esri recently published the second edition of Ocean Solutions, Earth Solutions, a book on the science of protecting oceans and coastlines, with a special emphasis on the role that GIS technology plays in this quest. The book shares the insights of ocean and coastal science researchers exploring ocean components and their relationships, patterns, and trends over time and space. More than 90 professionals and academics in fields such as oceanography, marine science, marine conservation, environmental science, coastal engineering, and marine resource management contributed to the book.
