Thoroughly revised and updated, this concise basic text has introduced non- science majors to the physical, chemical, geological and biological aspects of oceanic sciences through six successful previous editions. The seventh edition incorporates the most recent advances in our understanding of Earth and its oceans, taking advantage of new modes of electronic communication, navigation, and undersea imaging to bring to light the unique nature of Earth and its ocean system while using satellite exploration of the Solar System to compare Earth to its planetary neighbors. Taking a more process-oriented approach, the new edition examines the ocean as part of the larger Earth system while offering an even stronger environmental focus than before. Principles of Oceanography offers a broad, flexibly organized nine-chapter survey of all the essential topics in oceanography.
