Oceanography and Marine Biology preserves the elemental elements of the physical, chemical, and geological aspects of the marine sciences, and merges the ones fundamentals into a broader framework of marine biology and ecology. Existing textbooks on oceanography or marine biology address the companion field most effective cursorily: only a few pages in oceanography texts are devoted to marine biology, and vice versa. This new book overcomes that imbalance, bringing these disparate marine science text formats closer together, giving them more equal weight, and introducing more effectively the physical sciences by showing students with on a regular basis examples how such concepts form the basis upon which to build a greater figuring out of the marine environment in a changing world. Lecturer supplements may also be to be had.
