The ocean floor is planet Earth’s last frontier, largely unexplored and filled with sights to amaze us and new wonders to behold. Come along as we visit underwater volcanoes, canyons housed in the darkness of the abyss, and mountains that would dwarf anything found on land. Take a front-row seat as we discuss navigation and seafloor mapping techniques from long ago and discover how technology is making it possible to see the terrain at the bottom of the sea for the first time. Journey back to the days of ancient civilizations, pirates, grand sea voyages, and world wars as we uncover the shipwrecks and lost cities forever memorialized on the seafloor. Learn about the fascinating ecosystem that exists around hydrothermal jets and the plants and bizarre, one-of-a-kind creatures that call the depths their home. Let’s explore the ocean floor!

This book is suggested to accompany our Marine Biology science unit as extra reading for students in Grades 7–8.
