From space, the Pacific dominates our planet - it is an ocean so vast that it makes islands out of continents. Beneath its surface lie a series of underwater kingdoms, populated by creatures as different and diverse as those on land. This book is an undersea expedition through this magnificant realm, beginning off the California coast and travelling up to British Columbia before turning outward to the Hawaiian islands, the Galapagos and Palau. The book explores the sheer submarine cliffs of Japan's Suruga Bay at Izu Penninsula and then captures the eerie remnants of World War II battles that took place in the waters of the southwest Pacific, the most diverse coral paradise in the world. Continuing southwards, the book looks at Australia's Great Barrier Reef and Lord Howe Island. The journey ends in the temperate waters of New Zealand. Included in the book are information essays about each region, filled with anecdotes and adventures that give voice to the otherworld beauty of the Pacific.

Descripción Little Brown and Company November 1992, 1992. Hardcover. Condición: New. From space, the Pacific dominates our planet - it is an ocean so vast that it makes islands out of continents. Beneath its surface lies a multitude of mysterious underwater kingdoms populated by creatures dazzling and diverse, often beyond imagination. In Pacific: An Undersea Journey David Doubilet, one of the world's foremost underwater photographers, takes us on a spectacular expedition through this magnificent realm, presenting his finest photographs of the last twenty years, taken while on assignment for National Geographic. The journey begins off the coasts of California and British Columbia before turning outward to the Hawaiian islands and the Galapagos. Doubilet continues westward across the Pacific, passing by the tiny island groups of Palau and Kerema to Japan, where he explores the sheer submarine cliffs of Suruga Bay at Izu Peninsula. In Papua New Guinea and the waters of the Southwest Pacific - the most diverse coral paradise in the world - Doubilet captures the eerie remnants of World War II battles, underwater wrecks now softened by coral growth and inhabited by schools of glassy sweepers. Moving southward, he touches on the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Australia and lonely Lord Howe Island in the Tasman Sea. The journey ends in the rich temperate waters of New Zealand. Doubilet's mastery of the art of underwater photography is evident in his stunning color images of the world beneath the sea. We see California sea lions cavorting in kelp forests, a one-inch-long armored shrimp climbing up whip coral, brilliant red clownfish among bubble-tipped anemones, circling barracudas, a school of silvery cardinal fish hovering over a wire coral forest, the delicate beauty ofa tiny, venomous juvenile lionfish, an exquisite Gorgonian sea fan garden, and divers silhouetted against the deep blue waters of a submarine cave. Also included are splendid above-water panoramas and dramatic split-level photographs. In anecdotal essays about each region, Doubi National Geographic photographer David Doubilet takes readers on a fascinating undersea expedition of the vast and beautiful Pacific Ocean that begins off the coast of California, travels to the Hawaiian Islands, the Galapagos, Japan's Suruga Bay, and the Great Barrier Reef of Australia, and ends in the temperate waters of New Zealand. 146 color illustrations.
