“How do the oceans work?” Essentials of Oceanography, Eleventh Edition, takes an interdisciplinary approach to help readers answer this question. The latest edition brings together the interrelated spheres that compose Earth's systems as they relate to the oceans: geological, chemical, physical, and biological.

This unique combination has made Essentials of Oceanography the best-selling brief book—and one of the best-sellers overall—in oceanography.
