We all have a sense of the sea. Even if you have never been in or on the sea, you know what it looks and sounds like. But we can sense something without understanding it. In A Sense of the Sea, sailor and oceanographer Dr. Brian Whitehouse presents the sea we grew up with, and the one that is coming. Read this book to rediscover the sea, and to realize how you obtained your sense of it. The story focuses on the heyday of oceanography, that four-decade period when we had a fathomless thirst for discovery, the Soviet Union was in our shadows, Rachel Carson defined our sense of environment, and the adventures of Jacques Cousteau took us to unknown worlds.
