KIRKUS REVIEW

A simple, concise, but scholarly volume on all aspects of oceanography for biology classes and for amateur marine naturalists. The story of the sea itself is of particular interest to all who live near the ocean -- the restless, surface, unusual ""stratification"" of water and the strange depth formations of the deep. There are chapters on explorations and researches, ocean inhabitants, coral reefs and information about fishing- and the danger of over-fishing.
