Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0276429311, Hardcover)The Oceans have been a source of mystery and a challenge to mankind since the dawn of time. Until relatively recently, we knew little about them and only a fraction of the deep sea floor has been explored. Today, however, modern technology is able to give us a clearer insight into the oceanic world, helping us to piece together its history and understand how it works. In more than 300 pages, this guide to oceans provides the latest information, presented in a dynamic and visual style which will enthrall and entice readers. You'll learn all about man's exploration of the oceans, including the discovery of a completely new ecological system on the deep sea floor, as well as finding out about continental drift, tsunamis and ocean life. The book also covers topical environmental issues such as overrishing and pollution, which are threatening the future of the oceans. The spreads are a vibrant combination of new illustrations supplemented with informative labels; rarely seen photographs with detailed captions; intriguing infographics; and authoritative and accessible text.
