Pacific : an undersea journey by David Doubilet( Book )

8 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and Japanese and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From space, the Pacific dominates our planet - it is an ocean so vast that it makes islands out of continents. Beneath its surface lies a multitude of mysterious underwater kingdoms populated by creatures dazzling and diverse, often beyond imagination. In Pacific: An Undersea Journey David Doubilet, one of the world's foremost underwater photographers, takes us on a spectacular expedition through this magnificent realm, presenting his finest photographs of the last twenty years, taken while on assignment for National Geographic. The journey begins off the coasts of California and British Columbia before turning outward to the Hawaiian islands and the Galapagos. Doubilet continues westward across the Pacific, passing by the tiny island groups of Palau and Kerema to Japan, where he explores the sheer submarine cliffs of Suruga Bay at Izu Peninsula. In Papua New Guinea and the waters of the Southwest Pacific - the most diverse coral paradise in the world - Doubilet captures the eerie remnants of World War II battles, underwater wrecks now softened by coral growth and inhabited by schools of glassy sweepers. Moving southward, he touches on the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Australia and lonely Lord Howe Island in the Tasman Sea. The journey ends in the rich temperate waters of New Zealand. Doubilet's mastery of the art of underwater photography is evident in his stunning color images of the world beneath the sea. We see California sea lions cavorting in kelp forests, a one-inch-long armored shrimp climbing up whip coral, brilliant red clownfish among bubble-tipped anemones, circling barracudas, a school of silvery cardinal fish hovering over a wire coral forest, the delicate beauty of a tiny, venomous juvenile lionfish, an exquisite Gorgonian sea fan garden, and divers silhouetted against the deep blue waters of a submarine cave. Also included are splendid above-water panoramas and dramatic split-level photographs. In anecdotal essays about each region, Doubilet describes his adventures while diving, giving voice to the otherworldly beauty of his undersea imagery."--Jacket flap

The Red Sea : coral kingdom at the desert's edge by David Doubilet( Book )

10 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Red Sea is the closest tropical sea to Europe. It is almost an extension of the Mediterranean from which it is separated by the Isthmus of Suez. This proximity to the early civilisations of the Mediterranean have strongly affected the history of the Red Sea which has always progressed in parallel to that of the Old World. The Red Sea was frequented by the ancient Egyptians, Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans who left traces of their passing in shipwrecks that every now and then are rediscovered. The ships that have ploughed the waters of the Red Sea for millennia have had to deal with strong currents and high winds that have turned this sea into a graveyard of ships from every age. The result is a delight for divers who have always found in the sea an underwater Eldorado. The famous Austrian pioneer, Hans Hass, came here after World War II and took the first photographs of the Umbria and her 360,000 unexploded bombs using his legendary Robot. The Italians arrived in 1953 on the Formica in an expedition whose members counted names that have gone down in diving history: Vailati, Quilici, Cousteau...This book tells the story of the exploration of the Red Sea, especially underwater, taking both history and natural history into account. The reader is guided through the magical submerged gardens of the Sinai, on the adventurous discovery of unknown wrecks, on a search for the remains of the Precontinente II, to Cousteau's village, face to face with sharks, and to the beaches. This new title in the "Secrets of the Sea" series, contains dramatic underwater photography

3 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Une série de reportages se présentant comme autant d'invitations à arpenter l'univers de différentes espèces de la faune mondiale, que l'on découvre de manière privilégiée à travers la lentille d'un photographe du réputé ##National Geographic##. Chacun des titres cède ainsi la parole à un reporter qui relate, sur un ton familier et en multipliant les adresses directes au lecteur, sa rencontre avec l'animal en vedette et les observations effectuées sur le terrain. Si ces dernières lèvent le voile sur l'univers, les moeurs, l'anatomie et la vie de famille du bestiaire, une attention toute particulière est portée à la relation de ce dernier avec les hommes et aux dangers qui le menacent. Une rubrique "Comment aider" clôt d'ailleurs chacun des opus, à laquelle se greffent une sélection d'ouvrages, de DVD et de sites Internet pour poursuivre l'exploration, de même que des cartes de localisation et une présentation commentée des traditionnels habitat, régime alimentaire, espérance de vie, comportement, reproduction, etc
