In December 2017, a team of scientists and artists set out from San Diego aboard the RV Sally Ride to investigate the effects of the Thomas Fire, a massive wildfire that affected California’s Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties, on the Pacific Ocean’s biogeochemistry. Created during the expedition, this documentary explores the benefits of collaborations between art and science.
