(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Dive into this uniquely elegant visual exploration of the sea

An aesthetic look at marine life and the ocean environment, this book uses astounding photography and clear diagrams to make marine biology and oceanography accessible and an enjoyable visual experience. The Science of the Ocean offers up riches from every corner of the ocean, from coral reefs and mangrove swamps to icy fjords and deep-ocean trenches, and from great whales to the microscopic beauty of plankton. Along the way, it explains how the ocean itself works, including tides, currents, hurricanes, tsunamis, and the global processes of oceanography and climate. An informative and utterly beautiful introduction to the ocean, this book brings the wealth of the sea onto the printed page.
