Winner of the National Outdoor Book Award for Design and Artistic Merit: "This book is a work of art from every possible angle - from the exquisite photographs, to the book's design, to its flawless printing and production process. . . . Hall has everything right in this book. There is nothing extraneous, and nothing missing. This is a complete and moving immersion in the breathtaking underwater world of the Pacific Northwest." - National Outdoor Book committee "David Hall shoots with the inquiring and exacting eye of a scientist yet the soul and vision of an artist, combining the two to produce uniquely beautiful underwater images that educate as much as they inspire." -Christopher Newbert, author of Within a Rainbowed Sea Please see a four-minute promotional video on the Author Page In Beneath Cold Seas, author and photographer David Hall takes us into the underwater world of the Pacific Coast from California to Alaska, home to the most diverse and spectacular marine life of any temperate or cold-water ecosystem on the planet. From the tiny, candy-stripe shrimp, giant Pacific octopus, ghost-like hooded nudibranchs, and migrating sockeye salmon to the world's largest sea lions, Hall's stunning photographs and lively text reveal many fascinating species interrelationships and rarely observed animal behaviors. An innovative approach to over/underwater photography places the marine life of the Pacific Northwest in familiar context with hauntingly beautiful images that will surprise even experienced divers and delight the rest of us. An introduction by Sarika Cullis-Suzuki focuses on the conservation issues facing this rich yet vulnerable ecosystem. David Hall is an award-winning photographer and photojournalist with an international reputation whose work has been published in magazines such as National Geographic, Smithsonian, Natural History, Time, BBC Wildlife, Geo, and Terre Sauvage. He is the co-author of ten children's books in Scholastic's Undersea Encounters series and co-author of the scientific paper describing the famous "psychedelic frogfish," for which he received an award from the International Institute for Species Exploration.

Petroleum Geoscience is a comprehensive introduction to theapplication of geology and geophysics to the search for andproduction of oil and gas. Uniquely, this book is structured to reflect the sequential andcyclical processes of exploration, appraisal, development andproduction. Chapters dedicated to each of these aspects are furtherillustrated by case histories drawn from the authors' experiences.Petroleum Geoscience has a global and 'geo-temporal' backdrop,drawing examples and case histories from around the world and frompetroleum systems ranging in age from late-Pre-Cambrian toPliocene. In order to show how geoscience is integrated at all levelswithin the industry, the authors stress throughout the linksbetween geology and geophysics on the one hand, and drilling,reservoir engineering, petrophysics, petroleum engineering,facilities design, and health, safety and the environment on theother. Petroleum Geoscience is designed as a practical guide,with the basic theory augmented by case studies from a wide spreadof geographical locations. Covers all the key aspects of the origin of petroleum,exploration, and production. It takes account of the modernemphasis on the efficient utilisation of reserves, on new methodsin exploration (such as 3-D seismics). Book takes 'value-chain' approach to PetroleumGeoscience. First new text on petroleum geology for geology undergraduatesto be published in the last ten years. Packed full of real-life case studies from Petroleumindustry.

A renowned scientist restores hope for a better future with his latest views on environmental challenges. In this latest offering from David Suzuki, the well-known scientist, author, and broadcaster explores the interconnectedness of the world's myriad environmental challenges. The solutions are there, he argues; we just need the will to act together to bring about change. Suzuki delves into such provocative topics as the difference between human hunters and other predators, our dependence on the sun, and what we must learn from Japan's recent reactor meltdown. He also doesn't avoid controversial opinion, especially when it comes to taking on those who stand in the way of resolving serious issues like climate change. Everything Under the Sun includes telling facts and stats, the latest scientific findings, and examples of the positive actions people are taking today toward protecting what we have. Underpinning it all is the recognition that Earth gives us everything we require to live, under a sun that provides the energy to produce food, transport, and all of our modern conveniences. Published in partnership with the David Suzuki Foundation.

This volume offers new insight into an important and largely under-examined area of marine leisure and tourism: scuba diving tourism. Knowledge of scuba diving has long been hidden among broad discussions of water-based sports and activities and this focused book aims to shed further understanding and knowledge on this popular international activity. The book examines the current issues central to research into and management of scuba diving Tourism from multidisciplinary perspectives such as health and safety, climate change, policy and regulation and the recreation/leisure context. It further reveals critical management issues of economic, environmental and socio-cultural impacts related to scuba diving tourism which extends to the influence of climate change on the industry’s operations and future. This significant volume which conceptualizes the issues surrounding scuba diving tourism now and in the future is written by leading experts in this field and will be valuable reading for all those interested in marine leisure and tourism.

• Winner of the BC National Award for Non-Fiction • Nominated for the Charles Taylor Prize for Literary Non-Fiction and the 2011 Hilary Weston Writer's Trust Award. During Charlotte Gill’s 20 years working as a tree planter she encountered hundreds of clear-cuts, each one a collision site between human civilization and the natural world, a complicated landscape presenting geographic evidence of our appetites. Charged with sowing the new forest in these clear-cuts, tree planters are a tribe caught between the stumps and the virgin timber, between environmentalists and loggers. In Eating Dirt, Gill offers up a slice of tree-planting life in all of its soggy, gritty exuberance while questioning the ability of conifer plantations to replace original forests, which evolved over millennia into intricate, complex ecosystems. Among other topics, she also touches on the boom-and-bust history of logging and the versatility of wood, from which we have devised countless creations as diverse as textiles and airplane parts. She also eloquently evokes the wonder of trees, our slowest-growing “renewable” resource and joyously celebrates the priceless value of forests and the ancient, ever-changing relationship between humans and trees.
