The Ocean: A General Account Of The Science Of The Sea, by John Murray (1841 - 1914)
Sir John Murray, considered to be the father of modern oceanography, discusses the variations in the depths of oceans, and the methods and instruments used to measure such depths. He discusses many properties of oceanic waters including salinity, compressibility, pressure, colour, viscosity, and the presence of dissolved gases. The author addresses changes in density of water and its impact on the motion of water while describing ocean currents. He gives details of a variety of marine organisms based on the ocean depths at which they are found. Finally, he talks about the types of sediments and deposits obtained from the floor of the ocean, from different depths and latitudes. (Summary by Divya Sharma)

Thank you Amy! :D
Just a note, the wiki link for the author Sir John Murray was broken when I created the template. I rectified it in the first post, but I am not sure if you need to fix it internally. Here is the link for your reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Murray_(oceanographer)

Hello,
I might claim a section, but before I do I'd like to know if the tables/diagrams etc. are to find their way into the recordings or are left out.
Thank you
