Invitation to Oceanography provides students with a fundamental overview of the four major branches of ocean science: geology, chemistry, physics, and biology. The approach used is a broad one, relying on basic concepts to explain the ocean's many mysteries. Anybody - whether sailor, surfer, beachcomber, or student - can learn about the processes and creatures of the oceans by reading this visually exciting book. The second edition of Invitation to Oceanography has undergone major revisions. The material has been reorganized so that the development of key oceanographic concepts flows logically and systematically from section to section. Chapter 2 reintroduces an imaginary trek across the sea floor of the North Atlantic Ocean to the very top of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. A new chapter examines the numerous ocean resources, invaluable to the welfare of humans, and now shoreline geology and coastal biology are covered in separate chapters. No background in science is required to grasp the many important ideas that are relevant to the working of the oceans.
