A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The Unpredictable Mistress is one of the first books to chronicle the exciting career of an oceanographer. The book covers underwater mapping by scuba diving geologists, encounters with killer-whales, sharks and squid, and dredging up manganese nodules from the bottom of the sea. Undersea mountains and deep oceanic trenches are explored, and the unfathomable depths of the federal bureaucracy are successfully plumbed. Most of the at-sea incidents relate to the authors time with the US Navy Hydrographic Office, Scripps Institute of Oceanography, the US Coast and Geodetic Survey, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Educational, inspiring, and intriguing, this book should be required reading for anyone with an interest in the sea.

From the Author:

"Thus, the main reason for this book is to show tomorrow's scientists that the ocean provides a stunning challenge, that meeting this challenge is fun, and that they should seriously consider applying their training to providing additional understanding of the global sea." Harris Stewart
