1 BALLARD, Robert D., with Malcolm McCONNELL Adventures in Ocean Exploration : From the Discovery of the Titanic to the Search for Noah's Flood

BALLARD, Robert D., with Malcolm McCONNELL. Adventures in Ocean Exploration: From the Discovery of the Titanic to the Search for Noah's Flood. Washin gton, D.C.: National Geographic, (2001). First Trade Edition. Pp [1]-288. Illustrated. Index. 4to, blue cloth, silver lettering to front board and spine. Contents : 1. The Ancient Depths. 2. The Mysterious Sea. 3. Linking theShores. 4. The New World. 5. Ocean Highways. 6. War at Sea. 7. Science Ben eath the Sea. 8. The Living Ocean. 9. The Museum of the Deep. "One of our leading oceanographers and a National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, Ballard describes plunging 12-000 feet to the floor of the Atlantic, finding new life in the superheated water around hydrothermal vents on the Pacific seabed, and locating scores of wrecks, from Phoenician galleys to the Nazi battleship Bismarck. We peer from the cramped cabin of a research submarine at bioluminescent fish glowing in the sunless depths, gasp for air as the bathyscaphe Archimede fills with acrid smoke a mile beneath the surface of the sea, and join a crack team of technicians on the bridge of a research ship as they “fly" a state-of-the-art unmanned submersible over the Titanic's ghostly hull. But this lavishly illustrated book does much more than chronicle Ballard's own unique experiences: Intertwined with his vivid first person narrative is a concise history of humankind's age-old relationship with the oceans. Along with the giants of modern undersea exploration – Cousteau, Beebe, Piccard - he introduces the fabled seamen of the past, from ancient Phoenician, Polynesian, and Chinese sailors to such great names as Magellan, Columbus, Drake, and Cook. He explains how ships evolved from simple coastal craft to the most complex machines known to man, and shows how the search for new trade routes and the sheer love of adventure led captains everfarther over the horizon. He traces the development of navigation, naval w arfare, marine science, and much more. Capturing all the irresistible lure of the sea in nearly 200 vivid illustrations and a lively text that spans thousands of years of seafaring and oceanography, this is a book as expansive as its subject and filled with fascinating information, stirring history,and a full measure of the infectious excitement of discovery Robert Ballar d knows so well." - from the dj.
