You mentioned that The Sea Around Us was written in the early s, and that a lot of the science has changed since that time. Does Robert Kunzig’s Mapping the Deep provide a good point-of-entry for people who want to know more about that science?. Yes, it takes you into the science, and how oceanography is done. It explains how the sea floor and the currents were mapped out, and brings us. Lost ship found in Arctic after years: Michael Palin’s new book tells the story of its disappearance while exploring the Northwest Passage between the .
The Pacific islands of the south and west were populated by migrants from Asia who crossed long distances of open sea in primitive boats, beginning some 3, years ago. Polynesian voyagers reached Easter Island, in the E South Pacific perhaps as early as AD , by . For many years only (4) four oceans were officially recognized, and then in the spring of , the International Hydrographic Organization established the Southern Ocean, and determined its limits. Those limits include all water below 60 degrees south, and some of it, like the Arctic Ocean, is frozen.
