Developed in partnership with the National Geographic Society, market-leading OCEANOGRAPHY: AN INVITATION TO MARINE SCIENCE, 9e equips students with a basic understanding of the scientific questions, complexities, and uncertainties involved in ocean use-as well as the role and importance of the ocean in nurturing and sustaining life on Earth. The Ninth Edition features the work of seasoned author and educator Tom Garrison along with new co-author Robert Ellis, an assistant professor in the Marine Science Department at Orange Coast College who has managed research projects and educational programs throughout the world. Offering an even stronger emphasis on the science process, the new edition includes more "How Do We Know?" boxes detailing the science behind how oceanographers know what they know. Coverage of climate change has been updated to reflect the latest findings. Renamed "Primary Producers", Chapter 14 now includes expanded coverage of photosynthetic and chemosynthetic producers to help students understand the "big picture" in marine biology. New Global GeoScience Watch provides an extensive database of oceanographic articles and other resources that are updated several times a day. In addition, MindTap's all digital learning platform equips students with the ultimate Personal Learning Experience.
