The Ocean Book is full of easy-to-read, beautiful infographics that present the key issues facing our oceans. Rising sea levels, growing rubbish patches and overfishing are putting our oceans in grave danger. Though we love our oceans, we must learn to cherish them. This book will help readers realize how we cause the problems and how we can solve them.

About the Publisher

Oekom

Oekom

UIT was founded by Niall Mansfield in 1992 and incorporated in January 1993. Originally the company provided consultancy in computer networking and the Internet. Niall Mansfield had written several computer books for Addison-Wesley, and in 2003 Philip Hazel of Cambridge University, who occasionaly worked freelance for UIT, wanted to publish a new edition of the book about his Exim email software, that we had used in many large projects. That was the first book we published. Subsequently the company moved out of computer consulting, and is now devoted entirely to publishing. (Our origins are apparent because specialist computer books are still part of our focus.) Since 2008 we extended our remit, and our main focus now is publishing books on important and difficult issues, making them understandable to the layman. The first of these titles was the very successful Sustainable Energy - without the hot air ® by Professor David JC MacKay.
