Murphy, Dallas

SUMMARY

Since the Moment that Benjamin Franklin first heard about the existence of the Gulf Stream--from his cousin over dinner and a bottle of port--the world has never been quite the same. Burning with characteristic curiosity, Franklin set out to learn as much as he could--interviewing every seafaring man he could find and personally taking samples of the water as he traveled back and forth from London--about this hot vein of water flowing perpetually through the Atlantic. In The River in the Sea Dallas Murphy traces the history of man's interaction with the Gulf Stream from our first awareness of it right up until today's efforts to preserve it amidst the devastating effects of climate change. He looks back in time at the characters--like Franklin--who have helped to define what we now consider to be the Gulf Stream. Murphy also looks out at the Stream itself from the decks of the many ships he has taken through its waters, including the research vessel of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, Knor, on which he secured a berth to participate in an expedition using the most up-to-date technologies available to study the current state of the Gulf Stream.Murphy, Dallas is the author of 'River in the Sea a Biography of the Gulf Stream A Biography of the Gulf Stream', published 2007 under ISBN 9781582433509 and ISBN 158243350X.
