by Tom S. Garrison

The ocean affects all aspects of our lives--Tom Garrison will show you how in this new edition of OCEANOGRAPHY: AN INVITATION TO MARINE SCIENCE. Garrison takes you on a vivid exploration of the ocean--from submarine canyons to zooplankton, global warming, the growing plastics problem, and our changing coastlines--and explains oceanography's most important concepts. Garrison's friendly approach helps you understand the complexities involved in how we study and use the ocean. You'll explore topics like Hurricane Katrina; the devastating December 2004 earthquake in the Indian Ocean and the resulting tsunami; the Moon and its connection to the ocean; the power of the ocean to influence weather; and uses and abuses of the ocean. Gain an understanding of the wonders of the sea and the scientific questions that surround it with this fascinating text!

I purchased this book new, with the Cengage Access Card, to teach myself something about Oceanography, hoping to be able to access the Cengage site with the extra materials, quizzes, etc. Unfortunately, this resource is meant for instructor-led courses only, and requires an instructor keycode from an institution to gain entry. The materials are NOT available to individuals not in school. This has not been the case with courses I have taken from other publishers. So, while I think the textbook itself is very good, the overall course offering (to non-students) is only average. (And no, there are no password hacks to be found on the internet - - I tried !)
adventure time
This book was very easy to understand and there are graphics on practically every page which really gets your attention. It's pretty simple format and I would actually consider reading this on my spare time. Very interesting book and worth the price.
Another one of my favorites from geology
This book is nice if you want to get an overview of oceanography. I needed it for a class, and it covers all big-picture stuff, and some more details. It is not completely right when it comes to the carbonate system though.
This is a very good textbook. It is interesting and quite readable. I have used it extensively.
I love this book. It's one of the textbooks that I actually read for my Oceanography class. And have kept for fun readings. Well written.
this is a great book that I bought for a class of mine really nice finish on the front sturdy and is pretty good for learning
Good Product
