The oceans of the world are still very mysterious places. The life within the oceans is still a sort of mystery. However, the world is paying due attention to the serious and continually increasing environmental problems beneath their waves - this shall be treated seriously by every single human. For so many years people believed that nothing could affect the life of the sea creatures since they are well beneath the waves.

Now we all come to understand that this is not a case, and the main reason for that is the human activity, not only increase in the human population but also such activities and maritime shipping, offshore exploration and production of oil and gas, and so many other activities directly or indirectly affecting the oceans. Have a look into this Atlas telling you about the oceans and seas of our planet.

It opens with some brief introduction which is followed by the chapters on the ocean geology and ocean life zones, endangered marine species, coastal and temperate waters, tropical, polar and open waters, etc. each of the oceans has been addressed separately. The glossary with the basic terms has been included. Note that we have some other publications like this one, namely Atlas A-Z - A Pocket Guide to the World Today, Lloyd's Maritime Atlas of World Ports and Shipping Places, and Atlas of Maritime History.
