20 editions published between 1986 and 2016 in English and held by 1,457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Menard begins with the leading hypotheses (such as that the earth expands) and the supporting evidence for each. He traces the crucial work of the 1960s year by year as researchers debated hypotheses in correspondence and at frequent meetings. Throughout the book Professor Menard considers the implications of his story for the sociology of science and the goals of scientific research. Originally published in 1986.

Memoirs of Baron Cuvier by R Lee( Book )

1 edition published in 1833 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author and artist Sarah Lee (1791–1856) was a remarkable traveller and scientist in her own right. With her first husband, Thomas Bowdich, she explored the flora, fauna and local culture of the Asante region and Gabon in west Africa. The pair then went in 1819 to Paris, to study zoology under the famous Cuvier, in preparation for another trip to Africa. They financed their stay by translating French scientific books into English, and became close friends of Cuvier himself. Their second expedition proved a disaster, as Thomas Bowdich died in 1824, leaving Sarah alone in Africa with three small children. She made her way back to England, and made her living from scientific translation and her own writings. This biography of her mentor was published in 1833, shortly after his death, and remained the authoritative work in English on the most distinguished scientist of the age

Bathymetric atlas of the northwestern Pacific Ocean by Scripps Institution of Oceanography( Book )

8 editions published between 1969 and 1971 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The atlas contains 41 bathymetric charts covering the Northeastern Pacific Ocean between 4 degrees S and 60 degrees N latitude and from 140 degrees W longitude eastward to the American continental mainland. Sea floor relief is shown by means of 200-fathom contours based on a mean sound velocity of 4800 feet/second. Where sufficient data permits, the 100-fathom and 20-fathom contours are shown. Principal sounding lines used in compilation and analysis of the sea floor relief are indicated by a subdued grey overprint on each chart. The scale of the charts is approximately 1:2,400,000.

World-wide ocean depths and continental elevations averaged for areas approximating one degree squares of latitude and longitude by Stuart M Smith( Book )

2 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides background information on a world-wide set of ocean depths and land elevations recently compiled in meters and averaged over areas roughly equivalent to one degree squares of latitude and longitude at the equator. Averaging was done by visual estimation from contour charts having scales ranging between 1:1 and 1:25 million with contour intervals of 1000 meters or 200 fathoms. A description of the source charts, square referencing, averaging methods, error checks and estimates, is included
