Ocean! Our Watery World as You've Never Seen It Before is a richly illustrated encyclopedia that sets sail into new waters with an exploration of the world's oceans and seas. Discover the geography, geology, and ecology that lies beneath the waves—from the deepest trench to the longest mountain range on Earth, and from the world's largest animal (the blue whale) to some of the smallest plankton. Using 3-D computer illustrations that present an eye-catching level of detail, this book takes you on a world tour of the waters that cover 70 percent of our planet.
