The “father of oceanography textbooks”, this book remains an invaluable source of information on the world ocean. Comprehensive in scope and highly detailed in its content, its as much as study in the history of oceanography as it is a compendium of the state of oceanographic knowledge circa 1940.

Professor Sean appeared in several of the episodes of this series and helped develop learning activities to support it. While some episodes are better than others, The Endless Voyage provides one of the most complete and up-to-date series on oceanography available
