What's in seawater? How do heavy metal ships float? Why are icebergs dangerous? Ocean scientists try to find the answers to these and other questions about the sea by exploring its margins and its depths. But they also learn the answers through experiments and investigations in their laboratories.

Seymour Simon helps you explore the mysteries of the ocean in twenty-four easyto-understand experiments you can do. And you don't need to live near the ocean to perform most of them. With a length of rope you can demonstrate the action of waves-in your bedroom. A sheet of graph paper and pencil are all you need to do a profile of the ocean floor. You can learn how to set up and maintain a saltwater aquarium.

Clearly illustrated with drawings and diagrams by David A. Carter, this informative book will help you learn about the sea by doing your own experiments and investigations. Now, whether you are landlocked or near the shore, you can be an ocean scientist in your own home!
