Under Antarctic ice : the photographs of Norbert Wu by Norbert Wu( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is one aspect of Antarctica that tourists, and indeed most researchers, never see: the world of the ice-covered sea. This book, a collection of the finest photographs ever taken in underwater Antarctica, illuminates a little-known world abounding in strange and beautiful life forms." "To obtain these photographs, the internationally renowned photographer Norbert Wu was given unprecedented access to the icy waters off Antarctica by the U.S. National Science Foundation. In the unique conditions that prevail in these seas, invertebrates can grow to enormous sizes: sponges are as big as bears, jellyfish tentacles extend thirty feet, and giant sea spiders crawl through beds of soft coral. Wu also focuses his lens on the birds and mammals living at the shifting border of water and ice. In these pages we see a killer whale stalking prey from a narrow crack in the ice, penguins swimming underwater, and minke whales trapped in an ice-locked pool."--Jacket
