Since the rise of ancient civilizations, human curiosity has led to relentless exploration in an attempt to understand the oceans that cover 70% of our planet. The findings of ancient maritime explorers still form the foundation of modern knowledge and research, which benefit from increasingly precise instruments and platforms such as large research ships and satellites.

This well-illustrated book covers the work of many scientists and explorers throughout history and across the globe, who devoted their lives to study the oceans and coasts. Topics range from very early Chinese nautical inventions and tidal observations to the many and varied scientific research and exploration campaigns carried out in recent centuries. Americans, Belgians, English, Russians and Scandinavians are also among those whose exploits are discussed. In addition, the management issues of prime importance to the wise use of ocean resources, such as food and energy.
