Rising sea levels, leaking oil rigs, growing garbage patches and overfishing: our oceans are in grave danger. To protect the ecosystem it is important to better understand the relationship between human actions and their effect on marine environments.

The Ocean Book provides a comprehensive picture of the threats posed on this mysterious and fascinating habitat, and makes correlations visible and easy to understand with the help of detailed infographics.
