Summary
Water, water everywhere? So it would seem, and not just on our hom eplanet, but across the Universe. In this exciting exploration of oceans, Jan Zalasiewicz and Mark Williams take us to the beginnings of oceans on the hot, young Earth and show the critical role oceans have played in plate tectonics, in the development of the Earth's climate, and in the evolution of life on the planet. There is much we still have to learn about the depths of our world's oceans. Beyond the Earth, we explore possible oceans past on Mars and Venus, the ocean below the icy carapace of Europa, and the water jets of Enceladus. Will the Earth become another Mars or Venus in the future, when its oceans have boiled away? Do the oceans of Saturn's moons harbour life -- at least microbial life? And the tantalizing possibility of finding another Earth-life world with oceans beckons. Understanding oceans is central to understanding our planet, managing its future, and seeking life on other worlds
