Resource Page for Exploring the World Ocean Student Preview Edition, Second Edition
by Sean Chamberlin and Tommy Dickey


This page provides all of the figures for your textbook. Because we are very near to publishing the text, we have the advantage of using some of the actual illustrations.

The files are password protected because the figures are copyright. They are to be used for educational purposes only. They are not to be distributed or used otherwise.

The figures are provided as PDF files for each chapter. Some of the figure captions (and figures) in your textbook (the Student Edition) no longer apply. The deletions are indicated in the files.

You will need the free Adobe Reader to open and view the files. For PC users, you may click on the link to open it, or right-click to save it to your hard drive. MAC users may click on the link or hold down the CTRL key and click on the link to save it directly to your hard drive. The files may take a while to download if you are using a dial-up modem.

A good strategy is to read your textbook while you are waiting for the files to download. Once downloaded, you may browse the figures on your computer using Acrobat Reader.
