Although they cover most of the surface of the planet, the oceans are still largely unexplored. Yet they provide some of the only detailed records of conditions on the earth back into the deep past and are arguably going to play a fundamental role in the future.
This volume describes what is known about the Earth's oceans, from the internal structure of the plates which make up their floors to their role in climate control. It examines their potential for providing living and non-living resources and the threats posed to them by mankind's activities.
