Geographie des Indischen und Stillen Ozeans

Article metrics


EVER since Prof. G. Schott, ten years ago, published his great work ori the geography of the Atlantic Ocean, geographers and oceanographers have been eagerly awaiting the companion volume on the Indo-Pacific region. In the present work the author has followed the same original plan and, commencing with a historical account of the discovery and exploration of these two oceans, he brings under review the whole sum of our present knowledge, ranging from the geological character of the coasts, through the topography and nature of the sea-floor, the meteorological conditions, the current systems and the physico-chemical character of the sea-water from the surface down to the great depths in the various regions into which these two oceans are divided, to the biological conditions present, including in this latter topic a survey of the anthropology of the whole area.
