Summary
"Delve into this underwater world with ocean experts Sylvia A. Earle and Linda K. Glover, who have devoted their lives to understanding the ocean and who share their insights in this atlas, along with those of 27 other scientists and specialists. Other stunning data and imagery are revealed by the skills of expert photographers, cartographers, and illustrators. Ocean: An Illustrated Atlas distills decades of research, firsthand observations, scientific data, and analyses and engages and informs all who may want to more deeply explore the nature of this blue planet." "Accompanying the text are more than 100 maps, including 5 extraordinary new maps showing the nature of the seafloor of the major ocean basins in detail not published before. More than 170 photographs and three dozen illustrations provide new ways of looking at this amazing place, with a perspective on the past, present, and future of the ocean and on how it relates to human economies, health, security, and the very existence of life."--Jacket
