About this deal

All of the Earth's ocean, from the equator to the poles, is a single engine powered by sunlight - a blue machine. In this captivating and urgently needed book, Helen Czerski weaves a wonderful, watery spell, entwining spectacular science with poetic awe as she expertly guides readers through the workings of a vast, unfamiliar world. As a physicist she studies the bubbles underneath breaking waves in the open ocean to understand their effects on weather and climate.

Traditional Chinese and Japanese poetry and art depict the above-horizon, superior mirage, or fata morgana, as exhalations of clam-monsters.
