Archaeological Oceanography is the definitive book on the newly emerging field of deep-sea archaeology.

This book describes the latest advances that enable. Swedish oceanographer who developed theories to explain the dynamics of ocean currents, and inventor of several scientific instruments for oceanography which are still in use today. William Beebe American naturalist, ornithologist, marine biologist, entomologist, explorer, author, and first scientist to descend into the deep abyss, observing undersea life that had never before seen.
Helen M. Rozwadowski, Fathoming the Ocean: The Discovery and Exploration of the Deep Sea (Belknap, ). By the middle of the nineteenth century, as scientists explored the frontiers of polar regions and the atmosphere, the ocean remained silent and inaccessible.
The history of deep sea exploration begins relatively recently, mainly because advanced technology is needed to explore the depths. Some milestones include: Ferdinand Magellan attempts to measure the depth of the Pacific Ocean. Lee Spence, noted pioneer underwater archaeologist, author, editor, and discoverer of the Hunley.
By the middle of the nineteenth century, as scientists explored the frontiers of polar regions and the atmosphere, the ocean remained silent and inaccessible.
The history of how this changed--of how the depths became a scientific passion and a cultural obsession, an engineering challenge and a political attraction--is the story that unfolds in Fathoming the Ocean.3/5(2).
The book is basically a very brief history of deep-sea exploration that is divided into three parts. The first part deals with exploration up until the time of the submersible. There really isn't much about ancient exploration techniques because until the beginning of the 20th century, humankind really wasn't doing any deep-sea by: 8.

This is a list of non-fiction books on the history of oceanography. Can e.g. include biographies of oceanographers as well as accounts of expeditions.
Please add if you know any. P.S. this list just got a whole lot of entries with books more focused on marine biology, e.g. describing specific species. There are already lists for those books.
This book explores the birth of deep-sea oceanography in the nineteenth century, covering the breakthroughs in gathering data and the social impacts. It explains how the presence of researchers on naval vessels led to cultural shifts for scientists, sailors, and Western : $ Submersible Deep Dives: The Deep Submergence Vehicle Alvin is constructed by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute.
Alvin was the first U.S.-based deep-diving submersible, and has now made over 4, descents and led to numerous ocean floor discoveries. An Underwater Lab: Sealab II, an underwater habitat, is lowered off the coast of. Modern oceanography began as a field of science only a little less than years ago, in the late 19th century, after Americans, British and Europeans launched a few expeditions to explore ocean currents, ocean life, and the seafloor off their coastlines.
The first scientific expedition to explore. Rozwadowski, in the first book I’ve read devoted to the early ocean surveyors, shows us how the Age of Sail fostered the age of deep-sea exploration.
As ocean commerce, whaling, fishing, and travel grew in economic importance and matured from coastal to trans-oceanic pursuits, naturalists, professional and amateur, grew more interested in the /5(5).
Eternal Darkness is a pretty fascinating account of deep sea exploration from one of the pioneers of the field. He writes about some of the early technology that was developed to explore the deep oceans/5.
