Let's go wave-watching!
Strolling through oceanography
Would you like to discover fascinating phenomena about water -- puddles, creeks, lakes or even the big open sea -- on every stroll or trip? After reading this book, you will not be able to walk past water without seeing something new!
Is the water stagnant or flowing? Are the waves caused by animals, ships or the wind? Is the seafloor or coastline influencing how waves form, move and interact with each other?
Be careful, wave-watching is a seriously addictive sport and from now on you will end up suggesting "let's go wave-watching!" to everybody around you at every opportunity!
Detailed explanations of wave- and flow phenomena on more than 80 colour photos.
Oceanographer and educational expert Dr. Mirjam Sophia Glessmer is fascinated by water and any- and everything related to it. She is happiest when watching water in any shape and form, be it gaseous, liquid or frozen, contained in glasses, puddles, creeks, lakes or the ocean, and she wants to share this with you. She works on figuring out how to make people of all ages just as excited about oceanography, care as deeply about the ocean and take on responsibility for our planet's future.
