An introductory oceanography text for a one-semester course, for
students with little background in mathematics and science.
Emphasizes physical and geological aspects of oceans rather than
chemical and geochemical aspects. Includes chapter summaries, key
terms, study questions, and problems, plus color illustrations and
photos. This fifth edition includes a chapter on environmental
issues, and integrates material of current interest throughout.
