Dive into this uniquely elegant visual exploration of the sea An informative and utterly beautiful introduction to marine life and the ocean environment, Oceanology brings the riches of the underwater world onto the printed page. Astounding photography reveals an abundance of life, from microscopic plankton to great whales, seaweed to starfish. Published in association with the Smithsonian Institution, the book explores every corner of the oceans, from coral reefs and mangrove swamps to deep ocean trenches. Along the way, and with the help of clear, simple illustrations, it explains how life has adapted to the marine environment, revealing for example how a stonefish delivers its lethal venom and how a sponge sustains itself by sifting food from passing currents. It also examines the physical forces and processes that shape the oceans, from global circulation systems and tides to undersea volcanoes and tsunamis. To most of us, the marine world is out of reach. But with the help of photography and the latest technology, Oceanology brings us up close to animals, plants, and other living things that inhabit a fantastic and almost incomprehensibly beautiful other dimension.

Our seas are host to an extraordinary variety of plant and animal life, but much of it remains mysterious and great imagery is surprisingly hard to find. Alex Mustard is one of the world's leading underwater photographers and his images are so crisp and immediate that the animals seem to swim out of the water towards you. This beautiful book gathers together a selection of his award-winning images and a number of new ones to create a vivid picture of the seas and oceans and the animals that inhabit them, each chapter accompanied by a 1500 word essay and extended captions written by leading natural history writer, Professor Callum Roberts. The text addresses the issue of change in the oceans along with tales of oceanography, marine life and human history in the seas and aims to help the reader to get to know the oceans, understand how marine animals live their lives and how they have, are and may well adapt to change.

The curiosity, drive, and perseverance of the nineteenth-century woman scientist who pioneered the use of aquariums to study ocean life are celebrated in this gorgeous, empowering picture book. How did a nineteenth-century dressmaker revolutionize science? Jeanne Power was creative: she wanted to learn about the creatures that swim beneath the ocean waves, so she built glass tanks and changed the way we study underwater life forever. Jeanne Power was groundbreaking: she solved mysteries of sea animals and published her findings at a time when few of women’s contributions to science were acknowledged. Jeanne Power was persistent: when records of her research were lost, she set to work repeating her studies. And when men tried to take credit for her achievements, she stood firm and insisted on the recognition due to her. Jeanne Power was inspiring, and the legacy of this pioneering marine scientist lives on in every aquarium.

But Rosie can’t tear her eyes away from the faded photograph in her hands, and the words written on the back that will change everything… Back in the tiny seaside village of Heaven’s Cove after the death of her mother, all Rosie Merchant wants is to hide her tears, rent out her childhood home, and get back to her ‘real’ life, away from the gossiping villagers and wild Devon weather she escaped from years ago. She’s surprised to find a smiling man in hiking boots – local farmer Liam – waiting on the stone doorstep. His kind offer to help clear crumbling, isolated Driftwood House is hard to refuse, and despite Rosie’s determination not to let anyone get close, soon they’re walking and laughing together along the clifftops.

Secrets in the Beacon Light is not a religious book. Not about religion. It comes under the heading of a Self Help book with a Spiritual and motivational context. Its contents are clues the author has experienced during her life, as her eyes were opened. She can see what many, apparently, fail to see! These things are not hidden, they are as clear as the day light, for anyone to see! We all LOOK at these same observations, every day! However, few of us SEE them! Secrets in the Beacon Light is written with the intent to help the WORLD find what many people search for but few find! Hopefully, someone will read and learn from authors experiences and not have to go on and on making the same mistakes, until finally, when they are near the end of their lives, NOTICE what has been going on to cause their pain/issues in their lives. Readers are encouraged. There is hope; suggests we must change some things we are DOING! Otherwise how can we expect to change our lives! Secrets in the Beacon Light is truths. It tells readers honest, loving, caring observations. Perhaps, other wouldn’t want to say such things because it appears so obvious and perhaps, we already KNOW these things. If we KNOW, why do we appear STUCK in the same ol’ thing? Knowledge is worthless is we fail to use it. Secrests in the Beacon Light name was chosen because the beacon light offers HOPE and encouragement to those LOST at sea. It alerts those on the boat that land is near! We may need to follow that beacon light and not be lost ANYMORE! Perhaps, you too, have noticed how fast time appears to be going by? Hopefully, we still gave time to get thing s right with our God! Clue # 3 Choices/Decisions we make for the benefit of other can change our lives! It’s not difficult to prefer someone’s success other than our own. When we practice making this type of choice making it brings REWARDS, when we least expect them. We can even accomplish putting others before ourselves with a smile, a silent prayer, or even by remembering someone’s name. We don’t need to always think we need money to show someone we care. How about TELLING them? They may not KNOW you care. They may not KNOW you think about them if you don’t TELL them. It may be a mistake to think they KNOW! Clue # 48 If we are struggling in life, we may be going in the wrong direction. RELAX, take it easy! There’s proof! Notice the rivers, streams, they FLOW! It’s always difficult when we make a BIG deal out of issues that come up in our lives. That type of behavior, IS A CHOICE, and will make issues harder, more difficult to handle. Take it slow! Most issues don’t require your immediate response. We may have been surprised when that difficulty happened and would be thinking more clearly, later. WAITING before we make decisions allows our, “YES”, to be yes and our, “NO” to be no, and not have to change our minds, later. In turn, we can be more trustworthy! People will know that when we say something, you aren’t just TALKING, you mean it.
