Summary

The ocean affects all aspects of our lives, and Tom Garrison will show you how in the new Seventh Edition of OCEANOGRAPHY: AN INVITATION TO MARINE SCIENCE. Garrison takes you on a vivid exploration of the ocean—from submarine canyons to zooplankton, global warming, the growing plastics problem, and our changing coastlines—and explains oceanography's most important concepts. Garrison's engaging, reader-friendly approach helps you understand the complexities involved in how we study and use the ocean. You'll explore topics like Hurricane Katrina; the devastating December 2004 earthquake in the Indian Ocean and the resulting tsunami; the moon and its connection to the ocean; the power of the ocean to influence weather; and uses and abuses of the ocean. Gain an understanding of the wonders of the sea and the scientific questions that surround it with this enjoyable, fascinating book!
