Ocean worlds : the story of seas on Earth and other planets
Oceans feed us and affect our climate. With climate change, pollution, and overfishing, our oceans are at risk as never before. Yet we are only just learning their history and processes. Here, Zalasiewicz and Williams describe what we know of their origin and development on Earth, oceans on other planets, and what the future might hold for our own.
