In-Depth Essays Written by Scientists and Educators
We have invited outstanding scientists and educators to write guest essays in their fields of specialization. We call these Diving In essays and they are found throughout the book. Diving In essays engage students in a deeper study of intriguing topics and also encourage them to explore in greater detail other topics of particular interest to them.
Oceanography From Space Section
Because so much of modern oceanographic research relies on remote sensing satellite data, we have also prepared a special center spread on the use of satellites in oceanography. Today’s students rely daily on satellite data for weather forecasts, the global positioning satellite system, and communications satellites to let us talk with friends and colleagues around the globe.
Investigating Oceanography offers numerous aids to engage students and help them identify and understand key concepts in ocean science.
