Synopsis: An expert in marine geology and underwater adventurer recounts his greatest discoveries, including the canyons and plateaus of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, the wreck of the Bismarck, the lost ships of Guadalcanal, and the remains of the Titanic.
From Library Journal:
This fast-paced autobiographical work reveals Ballard's strong self-confidence as he describes his discoveries of the wrecked Titanic (which made him famous), the sunken submarine Thresher, and the German battleship Bismarck; his exploration of the undersea Mid-Atlantic Ridge; and discovery of deep-sea hot springs with previously unknown flora and fauna that form a hydrogen sulfide-based food chain. Currently the director of the Center for Marine Exploration at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Ballard will leave in 1997 to establish the Institute for Exploration at Mystic Aquarium, where he will focus on marine education. This lively account of his scientific voyages, the politics and salesmanship needed to maneuver through academe and obtain funding from government sources, and the workings of large-scale international oceanographic projects will interest readers in public and academic libraries.?Judith B.
