The Practical Oceanographer: A Guide to Working At-Sea
by


Number of pages: 159

Description:
I have written this web book to describe my experiences in conducting oceanographic experiments at sea. Working at sea is unlike any other endeavor. It has been my experience that most people are not properly prepared for their first cruise. I know I wasn't. It is my hope that this book will help people prepare to meet the challanges of working at sea.
