The Power of the Sea describes our struggle to understand the
physics of the sea, so we can use that knowledge to predict when
the sea will unleash its fury against us. In a wide-sweeping
narrative spanning much of human history, Bruce Parker, former
chief scientist of the National Ocean Service, interweaves
thrilling and often moving stories of unpredicted natural disaster
with an accessible account of scientific discovery. The result is a
compelling scientific journey, from ancient man's first crude tide
predictions to today's advanced early warning ability based on the
Global Ocean Observing System. It is a journey still underway, as
we search for ways to predict tsunamis and rogue waves and critical
aspects of El Nino and climate change caused by global warming.
