"Chasing Science at Sea" immerses readers in the world of those who regularly go to sea - aquanauts living underwater, marine biologists seeking unseen life in the deep ocean, and tall-ship captains at the helm, among others - and tells the fascinating tale of what life, and science, is like at the mercy of Mother Nature. With passion and wit, well-known marine scientist Ellen Prager shares her stories as well as those of her colleagues, revealing that in the field ingenuity and a good sense of humor are as essential as water, sunblock, and GPS. Filled with firsthand accounts of the challenges and triumphs of dealing with the extreme forces of nature and the unpredictable world of the ocean, "Chasing Science at Sea" is a unique glimpse below the waterline at what it is like - and why it is important - to study, explore, and spend time in one of our planet's most fascinating and foreign environments.
