About this book

The ocean affects all aspects of our lives - Tom Garrison will show you how in this new edition of "Oceanography: An Invitation to Marine Science". Garrison takes you on a vivid exploration of the ocean - from submarine canyons to zooplankton, global warming, the growing plastics problem, and our changing coastlines - and explains oceanography's most important concepts. Garrison's friendly approach helps you understand the complexities involved in how we study and use the ocean. You'll explore topics like Hurricane Katrina; the devastating December 2004 earthquake in the Indian Ocean and the resulting tsunami; the Moon and its connection to the ocean; the power of the ocean to influence weather; and uses and abuses of the ocean. Gain an understanding of the wonders of the sea and the scientific questions that surround it with this fascinating text!
