XXI Century Science: Oceanography
Marine Monitoring, Microbiology, and Materiality
In recent years, new techniques in molecular biology, gene sequencing, bioinformatics, and remote sensing have transformed scientific understandings of Earth’s oceans, offering new models and maps of their surfaces and depths. At the same time, fresh political, cultural and philosophical approaches to the seas have increasingly turned to detailing how human history and impacts are legible in our world’s waters. This volume features contributions from a range of scholars concerned—scientifically, socially, and ethically—with Earth’s oceans today.
