Patricia Barnes Svarney is an award-winning science and science fiction writer--with more than three dozen published books for the general audiences. A native of upstate New York, she did field work in geology, but soon found out she had a knack for explaining and writing about topics in the various sciences. So she took up the pen (and then quickly learned to type when computers took over) and hasn't looked back since. Never one to be "pigeonholed," her books and magazine articles cover such topics as geology, mathematics, astronomy, forensic science, women's health (including books about diabetes and nutrition), the space program, humor, Star Trek, Sabrina, and Alex Mack--with even a few mentions of cats along the way.

Book Description

The Handy Ocean Answer Book book pdf by Patricia Barnes Svarney

Long before there were fast food restaurants, the oceans helped sustain human life. Covering 70 percent of the surface area of our globe, the oceans are vast and mysterious and primal and pretty much everywhere you go. What is El Niño and how does it affect the oceans and the weather? What is a riptide? Where does the salt in seawater come from? Are there mountains undersea? How many species of fish exist in the world? Can an ocean be a color other than blue? How do whales breathe? Are volcanoes forming in the oceans today? Boy, we have some questions. The Handy Ocean Answer Book tackles these and 1,000 other questions on ocean life, waterspouts, whirlpools, ocean shelves, tides and quakes, ocean bottoms, navigation, famous shipwrecks, and the effects of pollution and global warming. Plus, you'll find out what clues the ocean has revealed about the origins and evolution of life on our planet and major climate changes. With 180 photos and illustrations, Handy Ocean will please dedicated landlubbers and salty sailors alike.
