National Geographic magazine is very well known for its photographs of the natural world, and in publishing an atlas of the ocean, they have tackled a project ripe with stunning material.
For those of us who investigate the ocean from the confines of sterile computer rooms or by lowering instruments from aboard diesel-perfumed, metallic grey, aesthetically-challenged boats, this visual entree into the world of the deep is a remarkable one. The rainbow of colors, myriad patterns and textures captured in the underwater world, and collected in this book for our enjoyment, is stupendous. My only complaint is that there are not more of them. My rough estimate is that substantially less than one-fourth of the total page area is devoted to these marvelous photographs.
