52 One Page Science Stories
  • Description
  • E-Book
  • Author(s) Information

In all of these one page science stories the author was directly involved. Most of them are arranged chronologically, especially near the beginning; more technical ones happen to occur near the middle and more speculative ones at the end. The author have documented the stories by some citing publications. Since the author became an oceanographer, many of the stories are related to the ocean in one way or another. However, some hypothesizing has crept into the later stories that allows the author to break through the boundaries of his or her trained academic expertise.

One page would be close to the average length of the stories where the range is from half to three pages. It has been found possible to summarize a remarkably long period of work, sometimes extending over ten years, into a single page. People not so familiar with science might more readily attempt a short version rather than a lengthier discussion. Those who want more can consult the references. There are only two short relatively simple equations that probably will not be a stumbling block, and incomprehensible jargon has hopefully been eliminated. Short poems could have been used to abstract the information, but that might be too great a condensation and it is a level of cleverness somewhat beyond the author’s reach. A few of the stories can be considered to be quick answers to some tales of old wives.
