Bathymetry and Its Applications
by Philippe Blondel
Publisher: InTech 2012
Number of pages: 148
Bathymetry is the only way to explore, measure and manage the large portion of the Earth covered with water. This book presents some of the latest developments in bathymetry, using acoustic, electromagnetic and radar sensors, and in its applications, from gas seeps, pockmarks and cold-water coral reefs on the seabed to large water reservoirs and palynology.

The book brings to life the world's largest geological research program, which has been drilling over many decades at many locations below the ocean floor to recover cores of sediment. Study of these materials helps us understand how the Earth works.

The ocean is the largest biosphere on Earth, covering nearly three-quarters of our planet's surface and occupying a volume of 1.3 billion cubic kilometers. Humankind has entered the 21st century having explored only a small fraction of the ocean.

The oceans are in interactive contact with the atmosphere, biosphere and lithosphere and virtually all elements pass through the ocean. In this class we learn about the first-order processes that take place within the sea and affect its chemistry.
