Humankind has explored every continent on earth, climbed its tallest mountains and gone into space, but the largest areas of our planet, the deep ocean, remain a mystery. At 36,000+ feet deep, these areas closest to earth’s core have remained nearly impossible to reach—until now.
Expedition Deep Ocean: The First Descent to the Bottom of All Five of the World's Oceans is the story documenting this adventure and exploration. Technological innovations, engineering breakthroughs and the derring-do of a unique team of engineers and scientists, led by explorer Victor Vescovo, brought together an audacious global quest to dive to the deepest points of all five oceans for the first time in history. The expedition pushed technology to the limits, mapped hidden landscapes, discovered previously unknown life forms and began to piece together how life in the deep oceans affects our planet.
Expedition Deep Ocean reveals the marvelous and other-worldly life found in the ocean’s five deepest trenches, including several new species that have posed as of yet unanswered questions about survival and migration between oceans. Then there are the newly discovered sea mounts that cause tsunamis when they are broken by shifting tectonic plates and jammed back into the earth’s crust, something that can now be studied to predict future disasters.
An absolutely groundbreaking adventure. Hard cover and 303 pages.
