KIRKUS REVIEW

A sailor-geologist tells the story of ocean exploration, mainly from the oceanography side. Famous voyages are briefly recounted; great ocean explorers are seen in their natural habitat; ocean life has been dissected. The possibilities of underwater mining, food farming, fishing and even climate control are now within the reach of modern science. An entertaining, well-written account of oceanography to add to a growing list of books now available on the subject.
