Without the sea, no clouds, no rain, no rivers, no life, perhaps. Seven-tenths of the world’s surface is sea — and yet! What do we know? The oft-repeated dilemma that we know more about the moon than we do about the waters of this world, comes to mind.

Although fully half of the world’s people now live within a hundred miles of an ocean, few today have a working knowledge of the sea.
