In this book, author Jonathan White takes readers across the globe to discover the science and spirit of ocean tides. In the Arctic, White shimmies under the ice with an Inuit elder to hunt for mussels at low tide; in Chile and Scotland, he investigates the growth of tidal power generation; in Panama and Venice, he delves into how the threat of sea level rise is changing human culture—the very old and very new; and so much more.
Tides combines lyrical prose, colorful adventure travel, and provocative scientific inquiry. Photographs, scientific figures, line drawings, and sixteen color photos dramatically illustrate this engaging, expert tour of the tides.Author: Jonathan White
