This one-of-a-kind atlas emerges us in the infinite wonders of the world offshore through more than 150 cutting-edge maps, photographs, and satellite images. The book lays bare a realm as challenging and untapped as space - and as vital to our existence as the air we breathe.

Accompanying exquisite, up-to-the-minute maps, the compelling text reveals the beauty and complexity of the ocean structure - past, present, and future - and explores it flora, fauna, and diverse phenomena, from giant squid and kelp to the smallest microbial bodies.

Fascinating point maps take us into the planet's deepest abyss, the Mariana Trench; along the planet's longest mountain chain, the Mid-Atlantic Ridge; on the migration route of humpback whales; and to a host of marine sanctuaries worldwide.

An unequalled resource of both education and entertainment, the atlas also explores the progress of fascinating technological developments that will help scientists discover the ocean's innumerable uncharted regions and life-forms.
