Description: The ocean is a strange and wondrous thing, not only to the historian who
traces the role which it has played in the fates of men and people, but no less to
the scientist. Let us first give a look at its geometry. Its characteristic horizontal
dimension exceeds its depth by three orders of magnitude. Bounded by
the atmosphere above, it presents a mightily agitated surface. Massive currents
and huge eddies characterize the motion of the basins, driven by gravity and the
rotation of the earth. Unexplored heat transfer phenomena across its bottom
vitally influence the energy balance. In short, it is all boundary and yet presents
itself so unbounded.
