Marine Science: The People Behind the Science (Pioneers in Science) by Katherine E Cullen

Nearly three-quarters of the earths surface is covered by water, and more than 90 percent of the Earths living space is in the ocean. The oceans influence climate and weather patterns, affecting peoples 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. 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.
