Description Summary Specification sheet Customer reviews

What does the subsurface of abysses look like? What are the type and structure of its component materials? What machines have been invented to observe this huge territory which has been inaccessible to geologists and geographers for so long? This book proposes a journey into the history of techniques used to observe the seabed from the surface and with submersibles.
An astonishing adventure illustrated by a hundred or so watercolours which present the measuring instruments, old and new vessels, submersibles, sailors and scientists at work along with bathymetric and geological maps.
