Synopsis: OCEAN: THE DEFINITIVE VISUAL GUIDE

Dive in to this breathtaking read about the world's oceans. Explore the last wilderness left on Earth, with an enhanced and updated edition of this exhaustive guide to the underwater world. From mangrove swamp to ocean floor, mollusc to manatee, the Japanese tsunami to Hurricane Sandy, unravel the mysteries of the sea. Marvel at the oceans' power and importance to our planet - as the birthplace of life on Earth, a crucial element of our climate, and as a vital but increasingly fragile resource for mankind. You will discover every aspect, from the geology of the sea floor and the interaction between the ocean and atmosphere, to the extraordinary diversity of marine life. Updated illustrations and satellite-derived maps and the latest scientific research explain and illuminate each natural process and phenomena. It includes an inspiring introduction by editor-in-chief Fabien Cousteau. Ocean (previous ISBN 9781405333085) captures both the beauty and scientific complexity of the ocean, making it perfect for families and students alike.

COUSTEAU, FABIEN

about author

Fabien Cousteau (born 2 October 1967) is a French aquatic filmmaker and oceanographic explorer who lives in the United States. He is the grandson of famed oceanographic explorer Jacques-Yves Cousteau and son of Jean-Michel. A graduate from Boston University, Cousteau worked in marketing for three years before returning to oceanography. He launched his first solo expedition in 2002, filming sharks for a National Geographic Explorer special entitled "Attacks of the Mystery Shark". That year, he also began work on a children's book and founded an online conservation organization. Starting in 2004, Cousteau spent three years studying and filming great white sharks in a custom built submarine called Troy. The project led to a documentary, Shark: Mind of a Demon, which aired on CBS primetime in 2006. In 2010, he founded Plant A Fish, a non-profit dedicated to repopulating areas such as the Florida Keys and the Maldives. In 2014, Cousteau spent 31 days underwater in Aquarius in a tribute to his grandfather. In doing so, he set the record for longest time underwater for a film crew, surpassing his grandfather's 30 days, and collected a large amount of scientific data.
