Cosmogenous Sediments Cosmogenous sediment is derived from extraterrestrial sources, and comes in two primary forms; microscopic spherules and larger meteor debris. Spherules are composed mostly of silica or iron and nickel, and are thought to be ejected as meteors burn up .

    This book is written for upper-division undergraduates and new graduate stu-dents in meteorology, ocean engineering, and oceanography. Because these stu-dents have a diverse background, I have emphasized ideas and concepts more than mathematical derivations. Unlike most books, I am distributing this book for free in digital format via. 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 .

    This book describes a chemical perspective on the science of oceanography. The goal is to understand the mechanisms that control the distributions of chemical compounds in the sea. The “chemical perspective” uses measured chemical distributions to infer the biological, physical, chemical and geological processes in the sea. Her book Dr Space Junk vs the Universe: Archaeology and the Future was published in and won the Mark and Evette Moran Nib Literary Award People’s Choice. Laureate of the Albatross in oceanography, Decibel Award in underwater acoustics, and Australia’s highest aviation award, the Oswald Watt Gold Medal.

This extremely unique and important book begins with 2 detailed accounts of Dr. Robert E. Stevenson's time in Moscow in June, during the height of the Cold War.

Stevenson was in Moscow at this time attending the Second International Oceanographic Congress. This textbook covers physical-oceanographic processes, theories, data, and measurements, targeted at upper-division undergraduates and graduate students in oceanography.

Oceanography Oceanography is the general name given to the scientific study of the oceans. It is histori-cally divided into physical, biological, chemical, and geological oceanography. This book is con-cerned primarily with the physics of the ocean, approached mainly, but not exclusively, from observations, and focusing mainly, but not.

Oceanography Books Oceanography covers a wide range of topics, including marine life and ecosystems, ocean circulation, plate tectonics and the geology of the sea floor, and the chemical and physical properties of the ocean.

Just as there are many specialties within the medical field, there are many disciplines within oceanography. This book will cover the fundamental principles of measuring oceans from space, but will contain state-of-the-art developments in data analysis and interpretation and in sensors.

Completely new will be material covering advances in oceanography that have grown out of remote sensing, including some of the global applications of the data.

In Chapter 1, aptly named “Early Foundations,” Townsend provides a historical overview of some of the major accomplishments by early explorers, and he addresses the questions of scale, navi-gation, and the technological develop-ments enabling ocean exploration.
