"In this text, we will explore the fundamental physical, chemical, geological, and biological features and processes of the
oceans and review how humans have studied the oceans. We will discuss the range of resources that the oceans provide for us, and the pollution and other impacts that result from human use of the oceans and exploitation of their resources. We will also examine the direct and indirect effects of climate change, not just on human civilization and natural ecosystems but also on the fundamental chemistry of the global ocean that pose a long-term threat
of the extinction of many ocean species"--Introduction.
