Introducing Oceanography

ISBN 9781780460017 
Introducing Oceanography has been written by two leading oceanographers to provide a succinct overview of the science of the study of the seas for students and for the interested adult wanting a topical guide to this enormous and complex subject. The initial chapters describe the oceans and the forces at work within them. The authors then discuss the effects of light, the chemistry of the seas and the food web before surveying biological oceanography in the main oceanic regions. The final chapter looks at the methodology of ocean study. Copiously illustrated, this book is intended for those whose interest in oceanography has been stimulated, perhaps by media coverage of declining resources or climate change and who want to know more. Technical terms are kept to a minimum and are explained in a glossary. David N. Thomas and David C. Bowers are colleagues at the School of Ocean Sciences, Bangor University, Wales, although Professor David N. Thomas currently spends much of his time working at the Marine Centre of the Finnish Environment Institute in Helsinki.
