A new National Geographic book authored by “Her Deepness” Dr. Sylvia Earle titled “National Geographic Ocean: A Global Odyssey” will go on sale this coming November.
The book will showcase the ocean’s impact on our lives, according to the organization she helped found, Mission Blue:
“With a special focus on new discoveries in the deepest reaches of the ocean, Dr. Earle’s book reveals wonders that few have witnessed before and broadens our understanding of this essential realm of life on Earth.
“National Geographic Ocean: A Global Odyssey offers a comprehensive overview of the fundamental science of the ocean–from plate tectonics to seawater makeup, including a fascinating illustrated guide to marine life, from sponges, kelp, and zooplankton to whales, sharks, and sea turtles. Full-color photographs offer an underwater tour of ocean vistas and life-forms from around the world, from the poles to the tropics, and from the surface to the mysterious depths. More than 100 maps and diagrams, including seafloor and political maps of all Earth’s seas and oceans, elucidate Dr. Earle’s authoritative, 520-page book, inclusive of a beautifully illustrated gatefold.”
The book will retail for US$65 (~54 Euros) and is available for preorder on Amazon and other booksellers.
