2010 Scientia Marina  
Significant advances have been made in the field of marine chemistry over the past few decades. New technologies and methods have led to a more effective contribution of chemistry to marine sciences, and remarkable progress has been made in such areas as the detection and quantification of marine contamination and its effects, and the study of the transfer of material through sea-sediment, sea-land and sea-air interfaces. In a relatively short period of time, it has been possible to increase
more » ... expand knowledge of the ocean as a system and the role that it plays on a global scale. This monographic issue of Scientia Marina includes a selection of papers presented at the "XIV Seminario Ibérico de Química Marina" (14th Iberian Seminar on Marine Chemistry), held in Cadiz on 22, 23 and 24 September 2008. The Iberian Seminar on Marine Chemistry (in the first editions known simply as the Seminars on Marine Chemistry) was first held in Cadiz in 1983. Initially, the seminars were organized by the Faculty of Sciences and the Faculty of Marine and Environmental Sciences of Cadiz University in collaboration with the Andalusian Institute of Marine Sciences (CSIC). The seminars are biennial. The initial aim of scientific dissemination soon led to a regular flow of communication between researchers that use chemistry and its tools to study marine processes. As of the sixth edition, the seminars were opened to Portuguese researchers and since then they have been held consecutively in Vigo, Aveiro, Cadiz, Faro, La Coruña, Lisbon, again in Cadiz and, more recently, again in Vigo. In the 2008 edition, 74 communications were included. They were characterized by their multidisciplinary nature and their high scientific quality. In this edition the seminar paid a heartfelt tribute to the late Dr. José Antonio Rubio Segovia. During his work at the Faculty of Marine and Environmental Sciences of Cadiz University, Professor Rubio was a big supporter of the seminars and, with his great knowledge of chemistry, was always able to smooth the way for researchers belonging to different scientific fields. A prize with his name was established for the best oral communication presented by a young researcher in this edition. Most of the papers presented at the 14th Iberian Seminar of Marine Chemistry deal with 2 main subjects. The first subject is biogeochemical processes that take place in marine systems, including studies of modelling at a global scale and on the coast of the Iberian Peninsula. Special attention is paid to the C cycle, nutrient dynamics, and the influence of some sediment-water column exchange processes that take place in these areas. The second subject is the fate, distribution, behaviour and effects of inorganic and organic contaminants in coastal ecosystems. Significant advances have been made in the role of submarine canyons in transporting contaminants to the continental margin and in the land-ocean interchange of metals. The use of high-volume products such as surfactants is an important ecological problem in estuary and coastal ecosystems, and their fate and distribution and the risk for aquatic biota in coastal ecosystems is analyzed. Metal concentrations in sediments have been used as a tool for establishing risk assessment and a new index has been applied to establish potential hazards. Finally, the study of the effect of copper on natural marine picoplankton has been shown to be a promising tool for real evaluation of contamination in oceanic ecosystems. Metallothionein and the subcellular distribution of metal can be used as a biomarker of metal exposure but environmental variables can significantly affect the response of organisms.

2005 Scientia Marina  
We are very pleased to present this volume, edited to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the scientific journal published by the Institut de Ciències del Mar of the Spanish research council (CSIC). Back in 1955 the first volume of Investigación Pesquera was published by the then named Instituto de Investigaciones Pesqueras (CSIC). Along its 50 years of life, this journal has been published uninterruptedly. A change of name to Scientia Marina took place in 1989 to more fully accommodate the
more » ... contents of the published articles to a more widespread view of the marine sciences. This change took also place concomitantly with the institute's change of name from Instituto de Investigaciones Pesqueras to Instituto de Ciencias del Mar. When approaching the date of this peculiar anniversary, we could not think of a better way to celebrate it than with the edition of a special volume. When planning the edition of this volume, we thought of several alternatives and finally decided to proceed with the edition of a series of invited contributions dealing with several of the most relevant topics in today's marine sciences. We first thought of the possible subjects and agreed on the view that most of the large subjects and topics fully alive on today's marine sciences should be present, also in a way that could be a reflection of Scientia Marina / Investigación Pesquera subjects throughout its life. The principal aim was to obtain free visions of different fields within marine sciences, written by respected scientists within their own fields, to envisage where marine sciences are and where they are going, but, very importantly, taking into account the recent past, the last fifty years. We then looked for appropriate possible authors and invited them to present a contribution to this especial volume. This was not an easy task. We looked for relevant researchers within each of the wide fields we identified and tried at the same time to avoid present scientific editors of the journal as contributors of this volume in order to open the journal to some fields which representation has not been traditionally very important in our journal contributions. Unfortunately, an excess of workload, fully characteristic of today's scientific activity within marine sciences, has not made possible to finally count on the contributions of some of the identified possible authors. This is an understandable situation that reflects the health, production and activity of marine sciences. Fifty years ago the number of marine researchers was at least one order of magnitude lower than today. This is good news, but certainly requires the adaptation of scientists and research to new technologies and approaches. Within our particular field of edition and publication of scientific papers, today's process is really very different than that taking place two or more decades ago, and we clearly believe that there is still a place for journals such as Scientia Marina. We are slowly adapting to the new changing world of marine sciences and we hope to be able to evolve and survive for many years. In fifty years time, publication of improved additions to marine sciences knowledge will certainly be very different from today's, but, who knows, we hope to be still alive. In this respect, Scientia Marina / Investigación Pesquera has undoubtedly contributed since its very beginning to improve the knowledge on the biology, ecology, fisheries, physics, chemistry and geology of the seas. Even though modest, its contribution has allowed researchers from most seas of the globe to publish their results. Throughout its life, the focus of the research has centred on the Mediterranean Sea and adjacent Atlantic Ocean, but contributions from most of the oceans of the world have been published in our journal, as well as many contributions with-
