"By the middle of the nineteenth century, as scientists explored the frontiers of polar regions and the atmosphere, the ocean remained silent and inaccessible. The history of how this changed - of how the depths became a scientific passion and a cultural obsession, an engineering challenge and a political attraction - is the story that unfolds in Fathoming the Ocean."--BOOK JACKET.
