For introductory courses in oceanography. This introductory text answers the question, "How do the oceans work?" It uses a systems approach to highlight the interdisciplinary relationship between oceanographic phenomena and how those phenomena affect other Earth systems. The authors incorporate scientific information from geology, chemistry, physics, and biology to illustrate how each of these disciplines relates to the ocean. Designed for introductory college-level oceanography courses where students have no formal background in science or mathematics.
