Questions About the Oceans.
Dubach, Harold W.; Taber, Robert W.
This book was prompted by the success of a display mounted by the National Oceanographic Data Center at the 17th International Science Fair in 1966, which enabled visiting teachers and students to ask and receive answers to questions via teletype. The book contains one hundred questions typical of those asked, together with answers ranging in length from a paragraph to about a page. Topics include physical, chemical, and geological aspects of the oceans, marine biology, and the history and methodology oceanology. The authors paid particular attention to presenting the material in language understandable to secondary school students; elementary school students should also be able to comprehend some of the questions and answers. Some answers are illustrated, and each is followed by selected references providing additional information. (EB)
