CHANGING SEAS is an eye-opening look at the earth’s last true frontier. The series takes viewers on an exciting adventure to the heart of our liquid planet, highlighting the unique research being conducted by undersea explorers.
Oceans cover roughly 70 percent of the earth's surface and provide 97 percent of the world's water supply. Yet, only five percent of this vast, deep underwater wilderness has been explored.
CHANGING SEAS is an unprecedented look at how oceanographers and scientists are uncovering new information that could lead to breakthroughs in areas such as medicine and alternative energy. The series also sheds light on how over-fishing, global climate change and pollution threaten the health of this precious natural resource.
