Lets just say for the sake of argument that some day soon we do get our own submarine. Where are we going to go with it? The Tropics or the Poles? Hot vents or cold seeps? So much to do, so little oxygen.
Fortunately, Her Deepness Sylvia Earle and her colleague Linda Glover recently released a new illustrated ocean atlas in full and glorious color to help us make those tough decisions. Its called "Ocean – an Illustrated Atlas."
I haven’t seen the book yet, but if somebody sends us a copy we’ll be sure to review it. Hint, hint, nudge nudge. The New York Times covers the breaking story on the new Ocean Atlas here. – PJE
