Издание на английском языке
Earth’s single, truly unique, de ning feature is the ocean of salty water that covers most of its solid surface to a depth of thousands of meters. For nearly all of the 4.6-billion-year history of the planet, the ocean has existed and has been essential to life, climate, and even to the planet’s geological evolution through plate tectonics. This course explores all of these topics and more.
