Life on Earth depends on carbon. It’s in our cells, our homes, and our drawings. When carbon enters the ocean, it follows a complex path--for better or worse--through seawater, plants, microbes, and animals to the seafloor. Join Dr. Crissy Huffard as she shares the changing story of carbon in the deep sea off the central California coast. Starring: Peniagone sp. A—arguably the most charismatic sea cucumber you’ll ever see, The Benthic Rover—the world’s only fully autonomous seafloor rover, Salps—our most underappreciated invertebrate relatives, Plastic—the villain, and You—the story’s illustrator.
