Overview

Ours is a watery world, a planet bathed -- indeed, born -- in a global sea whose mysteries are only now being revealed. In the words of pioneering oceanographer Sylvia A. Earle, we live on the brink of a "deep frontier," and in this wonderful book she explores diverse aspects of the unique, largely unknown universe that begins at the coast and covers most of the Earth. Highlighted by more than 150 detailed maps, dramatic photographs, and state-of-the-art satellite images, Atlas of the Ocean is an authoritative, wideranging survey that encompasses marine biology and cartography, ancient sailors and underwater archaeologists, plate tectonics and plankton. Sidebars by experts explore currents, climates, weather systems, and other key aspects of our planet's most important -- yet least understood -- world.
