The distinguished physical oceanographer Henry Stommel provides a lucid account of the ocean's circulation-a subject that has seldom if ever been explained for the many general readers who are interested in the study of the oceans.
"Henry Stommel has interesting and often original views about life in general and science in particular, some of which shine through in the anecdotes and 'one-liners' that enliven every chapter of what will doubtless and deservedly prove to be a highly successful attempt to explain important aspects of the ocean circulation to a wide audience."--Science "Suitable for any reader from first-year undergraduate to Nobel laureate."--Choice
