About this book

The past one hundred years of ocean science have been distinguished by dramatic milestones, remarkable discoveries, and major revelations. Ocean: Reflections on a Century of Exploration is a clear and lively survey of many of these amazing findings. Beginning with a brief review of the elements that define what the ocean is and how it works – from plate tectonics to the thermocline and the life within it – Wolf H. Berger places current understanding in the context of history. The essays treat such topics as beach processes and coral reefs, the great ocean currents off the East and West Coasts, the productivity of the sea, and the geologic revolution that changed all knowledge of the earth in the twentieth century.

Media reviews

"A combination of lively historical narrative with carefully chosen examples of cutting-edge marine science [...] Authoritative."
Times Literary Supplement

"It would appear that Wolf Berger has read just about everything ever written in the technical and popular literature about oceanography, ocean life, ocean geology, ocean history, the ocean's past, and the ocean's future. With Elizabeth Shor, Berger has combined this unbelievable reading list with his own prescient observations to create an accurate, inclusive, fascinating, and remarkably readable volume. I applaud their dedication, diligence, and dexterity."
– Richard Ellis, author of Men and Whales, Great White Shark, and The Empty Ocean
