Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Internationally renowned deep-sea pioneer and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Sylvia A. Earle, in consultation with experts from NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, is our peerless guide. This one-of-a-kind atlas immerses us in the infinite wonders of the world offshore through more than 150 cutting-edge maps, photographs, and satellite images. Atlas of the Ocean lays bare a realm as challenging and untapped as space—and as vital to our existence as the air we breathe.

Accompanying exquisite, up-to-the-minute maps, Earle’s compelling text reveals the beauty and complexity of the ocean structure—past, present, and future—and explores its flora, fauna, and diverse phenomena, from giant squid and kelp to the smallest microbial bodies. Fascinating point maps take us into the planet’s deepest abyss, the Mariana Trench; along the planet’s longest mountain chain, the Mid-Atlantic Ridge; on the migration route of humpback whales; and toa host of marine sanctuaries worldwide. An unequaled resource for both education and entertainment, Atlas of the Ocean also explores the progress of fascinating technological developments that will help scientists discover the ocean’s innumerable uncharted regions and life-forms.

Synopsis:

Synopsis:

An atlas of the world's oceans, featuring cutting-edge cartographic technology, as well as maps from various periods of history. The accompanying text reveals the oceans' structure, and the wealth and extent of their flora and fauna. 150 illus.
