Additional Book Details

The sixth edition of ESSENTIALS OF OCEANOGRAPHY conveys Garrison's enthusiasm for oceanography to non-science students taking the introductory course. It is a streamlined version of his bestselling OCEANOGRAPHY text, but was created specifically to meet the needs of instructors who prefer a shorter text. This edition incorporates global climate change as a recurring theme. ESSENTIALS OF OCEANOGRAPHY provides students with a basic understanding of the scientific questions, complexities, and uncertainties involved in ocean use, and the role and importance of oceans in nurturing and sustaining life on the planet.
