The oceans cover 70% of our planet, but did you know that less than 5% of the ocean floor has been explored? In the face of rapid climate change, ocean scientists are racing to understand what makes a healthy ocean and how rapid changes in ocean temperature, currents and chemistry will affect biodiversity, fishing, tourism, land erosion and myriad of other aspects that will affect us on land.

Thanks to our wonderful collaborators at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study and the Collection of Historical Scientific Instruments for sponsoring our live audience recording. Many thanks to our wonderful podcast guest scientists Christina Hernandez, Gabriela Farfan, and Hanny Rivera for sharing their insights.
