📒The Ocean ✍ Philip Henry Gosse

📒Lament For An Ocean ✍ Michael Harris
✏Lament for an Ocean Book Summary : The northern cod have been almost wiped out. Once the most plentiful fish on the Grand Banks off the coast of Newfoundland, the cod is now on the brink of extinction, and tens of thousands of people in Atlantic Canada have been left without work by a 1992 moratorium on fishing the stock. Today, the Pacific salmon stocks are in similar trouble – victims of the same blind, stupid greed. Angry, accusatory fingers have been pointed at various possible culprits for the collapse of the cod – at the Spanish and Portuguese, who for hundreds of years sent ever-bigger fleets to the Grand Banks; at the factory-freezer trawlers, which “vacuumed” the ocean floor for the prized fish; at those inshore fishermen who circumvented the rules governing the fishery; at the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans, which is responsible for managing the fishery; at the harp seal, the cod’s competitor for food, whose numbers have exploded in recent years; even at Nature, for lowering the temperature of the ocean. In Lament for an Ocean, the award-winning true-crime writer Michael Harris investigates the real causes of the most wanton destruction of a natural resource in North American history since the buffalo were wiped off the face of the prairies. The story he carefully unfolds is the sorry tale of how, despite the repeated and urgent warnings of ocean scientists, the northern cod was ruthlessly exploited. From the Hardcover edition.
📒50 Ways To Save The Ocean ✍ David Helvarg
✏50 Ways to Save the Ocean Book Summary : The oceans, and the challenges they face, are so vast that it’s easy to feel powerless to protect them. 50 Ways to Save the Ocean, written by veteran environmental journalist David Helvarg, focuses on practical, easily-implemented actions everyone can take to protect and conserve this vital resource. Well-researched, personal, and sometimes whimsical, the book addresses daily choices that affect the ocean's health: what fish should and should not be eaten; how and where to vacation; storm drains and driveway run-off; protecting local water tables; proper diving, surfing, and tide pool etiquette; and supporting local marine education. Helvarg also looks at what can be done to stir the waters of seemingly daunting issues such as toxic pollutant runoff; protecting wetlands and sanctuaries; keeping oil rigs off shore; saving reef environments; and replenishing fish reserves.

📒Reconstruction Of The Paleo Asian Ocean ✍ Robert G. Coleman
✏Reconstruction of the Paleo Asian Ocean Book Summary : This Proceedings volume contains selected papers from two symposia which were held during the 29th International Geological Congress, Kyoto, Japan, 24 August--3 September, 1992. The first symposium --- ''Reconstruction of the Paleo-Asian Ocean'' --- contains 11 papers from a group of scientists working together in an international project of the same name. The goal of the project is to collect and evaluate petrologic and tectonic data within specific terranes so as to understand the geodynamic processes leading to the amalgamation of Asia. These papers represent vital geological discussions for interpreting the geodynamic maps being produced by the project. From the second symposium of this volume --- ''Quaternary Environmental Change'' --- 14 papers were selected. The wide range of topics can be divided as follows: Deep sea core analysis; Coral reef and nearshore environment; Paleoenvironmental analysis; Tephras, Loess and Pedology; River morphology and others.

📒Alien Ocean ✍ Stefan Helmreich
✏Alien Ocean Book Summary : Alien Ocean immerses readers in worlds being newly explored by marine biologists, worlds usually out of sight and reach: the deep sea, the microscopic realm, and oceans beyond national boundaries. Working alongside scientists at sea and in labs in Monterey Bay, Hawai'i, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and the Sargasso Sea and at undersea volcanoes in the eastern Pacific, Stefan Helmreich charts how revolutions in genomics, bioinformatics, and remote sensing have pressed marine biologists to see the sea as animated by its smallest inhabitants: marine microbes. Thriving in astonishingly extreme conditions, such microbes have become key figures in scientific and public debates about the origin of life, climate change, biotechnology, and even the possibility of life on other worlds.
