To Sea for Science (Ferry Publications)

1 In Stock

In the field of oceanographic studies ocean-going scientific research ships are now of crucial importance when conducting surveys in extreme environments. Exploration in the fields of marine biology, ocean engineering, atmospheric science, geophysics and biological, chemical and physical oceanography requires a vessel which is equipped with the most up-to-date technology and research facilities.

In To Sea for Science the author, Trevor Boult, has covered research ships relating to the period from the 1960s to the 1990s, which were designated as Royal Research Ships and were operated by the Natural Environment Research Council.

The author draws on his experiences as a member of the NERC and, along with input from several of his former colleagues, recalls conditions encountered, experiences on-board and navigational challenges they met whilst working in the forefront of oceanographic research.

250 mainly colour photographs and illustrations. 194 pages.
