    The content is well-written with beautiful illustrations and diagrams. I recommend this textbook to any one who is taking an introductory oceanography course. It is very useful for reference as well as minimal research.

    Might there be an economic incentive for textbook to be in its tenth edition? Probably 20% of the illustrations are unncesessary. Photographs of pretty girls pulling up a bucket of water and scientists are a waste of ink, the reader’s time and money. Dimensions are always given in metric, followed by the English equivalent. Imagine a chemistry textbook giving molecular weights in grams followed by pounds in parentheses. The authors are gushingly emotional and 100% poltically correct about climate change, overfishing and the adverse effects of agricultural runoff (never mentioning bemefits).
