  Simon Winchester brings a unique and well-explained perspective, studying the world's most significant ocean via a series of ten essays each with a different starting point. Ranging from the Pacific's role as crucible for all the world's weather through surfing to the invention of the transistor, he brings to each considerable research/5(44). Scattered around the Pacific and rising from the ocean floor are high volcanic islands (such as the Hawaiian Islands) and low coral islands (such as those of Oceania). Ocean Floor The floor of the Pacific Ocean, which has an average depth of c, ft (4, m), is largely a deep-sea plain.
