1.5 Further Reading
If you know little about the ocean and oceanography, I suggest you begin by reading MacLeish's book, especially his Chapter 4 on "Reading the ocean". In my opinion, it is the best overall, non-technical, description of how oceanographers came to understand the ocean. You may also benefit from reading pertinent chapters from any introductory oceanographic textbook. Those by Gross, Pinet, or Thurman are especially useful. The three texts produced by the Open University provide a slightly more advanced treatment.
