The sea is not just a huge body of salt water. It is acted upon by various physical and chemical factors.
These combines to form a complex web which takes scientists many years to unravel.
This book covers a wide range of subjects, from winds, waves, tsunamis, tides, and currents to biological phenomena like biorhythm and bioluminescence to seamanship and maritime lore written in a simple language and easily understood by the layperson who is not conversant with basic sciences.
