Using 3D computer illustrations that present a level of detail you simply can't find elsewhere, this ebook takes you on a world tour of the waters that cover 70 percent of our planet. You will see the fish, invertebrates, and other animals that call the ocean home and learn how their anatomy and behavior is adapted to deal with a watery habitat.

How do tides provide electricity? How can people help marine conservation? There are also all the facts and figures you could ever want about our seas. Did you know that for every bathtub-sized amount of saltwater on Earth, there are just 4 teaspoons of freshwater? Or that the Pacific Ocean is so large, all the world's continents could fit into it? From coasts and glaciers to the depths of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, Ocean! is a truly revealing study of our underwater world.

No other single work approaches the exhaustive coverage of this unique book.
