This program describes our current knowledge of ocean science, and profiles the scientific process as it applies to oceanography; it delivers an accurate picture of modern oceanography and illustrates how each of these scientific disciplines adds to our knowledge of ocean life and ocean circulation; it includes excellent footage and viewers will enjoy the spectacular shots of hydrothermal vent and bioluminescent deep-sea fauna." -EMRO Review "Recommended. An excellent video to give students a first-hand look at scientists at work, equipment they use, and work place environments." -School Library Journal The world's oceans affect all our lives. They control our weather, provide much of our food, and supply important minerals and sources of energy. This program explores the many scientific disciplines involved in discovering the way the oceans work and govern our lives.
