The present volume documents an interview with the eminent oceanographer and geophysicist Walter Munk, who is one of the "grand old men" of oceanography. Seventy Years of Exploration in Oceanography covers many key issues, such as ocean-wave prediction, ocean acoustic thermography. As a highly prominent scientist who has influenced many present day key oceanographers, Munk's career covers 70 years of practice, beginning about 1940 and continuing to the present.
"It is [...] a joyful romp through the history of oceanography that will appeal to both those in the field and those curious about it – touching not just on oceanography, but Earth sciences in general. [...] So my recommendation is: Go ahead, get to know Walter. You'll be glad you did."
