The Geography of the Ocean
Author : Anne-Flore Laloë
Publisher : Routledge
Release Date : 2016-04-14
ISBN 10 : 1317030540
Pages : 164 pages

Despite the fact that the vast majority of the earth’s surface is made up of oceans, there has been surprisingly little work by geographers which critically examines the ocean-space and our knowledge and perceptions of it. This book employs a broad conceptual and methodological framework to analyse specific events that have contributed to the production of geographical knowledge about the ocean. These include, but are not limited to, Christopher Columbus’ first transatlantic journey, the mapping of nonexistent islands, the establishment of transoceanic trade routes, the discovery of largescale water movements, the HMS Challenger expedition, the search for the elusive Terra Australis Incognita, the formulation of the theory of continental drift and the mapping of the seabed. Using a combination of original, empirical (archival, material and cartographic), and theoretical sources, this book uniquely brings together fascinating narratives throughout history to produce a representation and mapping of geographical oceanic knowledge. It questions how we know what we know about the oceans and how this knowledge is represented and mapped. The book then uses this representation and mapping as a way to coherently trace the evolution of oceanic spatial awareness. In recent years, particularly in historical geography, discovering and knowing the ocean-space has been a completely separate enterprise from discovering and colonising the lands beyond it. There has been such focus on studying colonised lands, yet the oceans between them have been neglected. This book gives the geographical ocean a voice to be acknowledged as a space where history, geography and indeed historical geography took place.

Water Worlds: Human Geographies of the Ocean
Author : Dr Jon Anderson,Dr Kimberley Peters
Publisher : Ashgate Publishing, Ltd.
Release Date : 2014-02-12
ISBN 10 : 1409450511
Pages : 214 pages

Critical human activities take place at sea, including trade, tourism, migration, scientific exploration and resource exploitation. This book offers a novel and important contribution to an ever-emerging cross-disciplinary subject matter and challenges human geography's preoccupation with the terrestrial. Linking to new theoretical debates shaping the geographic discipline, (such as affect, assemblage, emotion, hybridity and the more-than-human) this volume unlocks new knowledge concerning the human geographies of ocean space and dispenses with fixed conceptions of space. It advances geographical understanding based on the world as 'becoming', changing, mobile and processional.

ISBN 10 : 1493905244
Pages : 180 pages

Global warming and human-driven impacts are changing the World’s ecological zones. This book applies the principles described in Bailey’s Ecosystem Geography: From Ecoregions to Sites, 2nd ed. (Springer 2009, 1st ed. 1996) to describe and characterize the major terrestrial and aquatic ecological zones of the Earth. Bailey’s system for classifying these zones has been adopted by major organizations such as the U.S. Forest Service and The Nature Conservancy and this book is a significant contribution to a long tradition of classifying and studying the world’s ecological regions or ecoregions. It includes two color maps that show the major ecoregions of the continents and oceans. Also included are: - 106 illustrations with 55 in full color - A new chapter on mountains is included. - There are new sections that address concerns about how eco regions are changing under the relentless influence of humans and climate change - Another new feature is the discussion of using eco regional patterns to transfer research results and select sites for detecting climate change effects on ecosystem distribution - Use of ecoregional patterns to design monitoring networks and sustainable landscapes - Fire regimes in different regional ecosystems and their management implications.
