    This introduction to the study of the world's oceans provides a straightforward and comprehensive presentation of the subject. It covers fundamental topics such as the origins of marine life, the physical properties of the oceans, and the chemistry of water. The book approaches marine biology from an environmental perspective rather than a taxomonic one. This new edition of Biological Oceanography has been greatly updated and expanded since its initial publication in It presents current understanding of ocean ecology emphasizing the character of marine organisms from viruses to fish and worms, together with their significance to their habitats and to each other. The book initially emphasizes pelagic organisms and processes, but benthos.

      Oceanography and Marine Biology preserves the basic elements of the physical, chemical, and geological aspects of the marine sciences, and merges those fundamentals into a broader framework of marine biology and ecology. I have found that this approach works: my class of students fills every semester it is offered, with students on waiting Price: $ "Introduction to Oceanography is a textbook appropriate to an introductory-level university course in oceanography. The book covers the fundamental geological, chemical, physical and biological processes in the ocean, with an emphasis on the North Atlantic region."--Publisher's description.

This book is a cloned version of Introduction to Oceanography by Paul Webb. This science textbook is a superb overview of oceanography. Written during the s, it is still a relevant and handy reference book in the 21st century for anyone who loves, and lives by, the sea.

I purchased a used copy on and was delighted to discover it is autographed by Dr. Ross.4/5(1). It is a good book that could give you quick introduction/review on basic concepts of physical oceanography like potential density, temperature, Brunt-väisälä frequency, wind-driven surface currents, thermohaline circulation The chapters about surface currents and deep circulation are succint and well-written, although more info/comments on the role of overturning circulation on climate /5(15).

The world's oceans account for roughly 71 percent of the planet's surface and 99 percent of its livable volume. Any study of this huge habitat requires a solid foundation in the principles that underlie marine biology and physical and chemical oceanography, yet until now undergraduate textbooks have largely presented compilations of facts rather than explanations of principles.
