Smithsonian Ocean: Our Water Our World by Deborah Cramer

isa cann"Our lives depend on the sea. As gifted science writer Deborah Cramer makes clear in this extraordinary volume, the ocean has been earth's lifeline for more than three and a half billion years. Life began in the scalding inferno of deep-sea hot springs. The first cell, the first plant, and the first animal were all born in the sea. Climate changes wrought by the sea created evolutionary pathways for mammals and gave rise to our human ancestors some 200,000 years ago. The one, interconnected sea still sustains us. Invisible plants in the ocean's sunlit surface give us air to breathe. Rushing currents supply water to the atmosphere's protective greenhouse and rain to dry land."

"Deborah Cramer lives with her family at the edge of a salt marsh in Gloucester, Massachusetts, where she awaits the return of the alewives into tidal creeks each spring, and writes about science, nature, and the environment. She was awarded the science writing fellowship at the Dibner Institute for the History of Science and Technology at MIT in 2005-2006, and is currently a visiting scholar at MIT’s Earth System Initiative."
