Publisher Comments:

An interactive guide to the science of Oceanography, this resource manual helps students learn about the oceans, explore some of the major phenomena that occur on our planet, and appreciate the way that scientific investigation of the Earth proceeds. The book is divided into two parts. The first part contains a series of thirty-eight, short investigations that are designed to facilitate learning of a particular oceanography topic. These investigations are in an easy-to-follow laboratory format and the perforated pages create an easy way to turn in homework. The second part of the text provides a concise overview of major concepts of oceanography, which can serve as an additional resource to help students interpret the workings of the oceanic system.
