Fathoming the Ocean
The Discovery and Exploration of the Deep SeaBook - 2005
"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.
