Alien Ocean
Author: Stefan Helmreich

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

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.

The Social Construction Of The Ocean
Author: Philip E. Steinberg
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Release Date: 2001-10-25
Pages: 239
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This 2001 book presents a history of the uses, regulations and representation of the world-ocean, from approximately 1450 through the present. This history is told through a 'territorial political economy' lens, borrowing from world-systems theory, economic-geographic studies of the spatiality of capitalism, political-geographic work on the history of territoriality, and post-structural work on social conflict in the production of space. Just as the modern era has been characterized by a conflicting set of dynamic and contested spatiality on land, so has it been characterized by a conflicting set of spatial functions at sea. Evidence is marshaled from legal texts, literary and artistic creations, cartographic representations, advertisements, commercial and military history, and policy debates. The book concludes by considering how lessons learned from the history of the ocean may be applied to emerging spaces, such as cyberspace, where there is a similarly problematic 'fit' between social processes and the institutions of state governance.

Pages: 150
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This atlas contains maps of phosphate, nitrate and silicate at selected standard levels of the world ocean in a one-degree grid. The fields used to generate these maps were computed by objective historical data. Maps for all-data annual composing periods are presented. Data distribution maps are presented for various composting periods. Basin zonal averages and basin volume averages are computed form these objectively analyzed fields and presented in the form of figures and tables.
