Pearson Education Internat., Jul 21, 2009 - Oceanography - 576 pages
For introductory courses in Oceanography."How do the oceans work?" To help students find the answers, Trujillo and Thurman present in-depth and rigorous discussions of oceanographic concepts and demystify the science for the non-science student. Their systems approach highlights the interdisciplinary relationship between oceanographic phenomena and how those phenomena affect other Earth systems. Scientific information from geology, chemistry, physics, and biology is incorporated to illustrate how each of these disciplines relates to the ocean. This unique combination of rigor and accessibility has made Essentials of Oceanography the best-selling brief book - and one of the best-sellers, period - on the market.
