Details

Nearly three-quarters of Earth's surface is covered by water, and more than 90 percent of the Earth's living space is in the ocean. The oceans influence climate and weather patterns, affecting people's daily lives in many ways. Marine science includes all of the sciences as they relate to the sea, including marine biography and oceanography. From the explorations of the Challenger to the theory of seafloor spreading to the invention of scuba gear, the 10 pioneers covered in this volume paved the way for marine scientists today. Each chapter contains relevant information on the scientist's childhood, research, discoveries, and lasting contributions to the field and concludes with a chronology and a list of print and Internet references specific to that individual.

Entries include:
  • Robert Ballard
  • Henry Bigelow
  • William Beebe
  • Eugenie Clark
  • Jacques-Yves Cousteau
  • Sylvia Earle
  • Harry Hammond Hess
  • Ernest Everett Just
  • Fridtjof Nansen
  • Sir C. Wyville Thomson.
