Excerpt from A Sea Change
PMEL scientists contributed to a documentary called "A Sea Change"
PMEL scientists Dr. Richard Feely and Dr. Christopher Sabine recently contributed to a documentary where they discussed their work involving the measuring and monitoring of ocean acidification in our world's oceans. The documentary, "A Sea Change", featured many NOAA scientists and premiered on March 14, 2009 at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C. as part of the DC Environmental Film Festival. Since then it has been shown at many venues all around the world.
The documentary follows a retired teacher and headmaster, Sven Huseby, as he seeks out a variety of perspectives on ocean acidification and how to explain this to his young grandson. Drs. Sabine and Feely are shown speaking at PMEL in Seattle, Washington next to the world's first ocean acidification mooring developed by engineers and scientists at PMEL. "A Sea Change" was made by Nijii Films and produce in partnership with Sailors for the Sea, a nonprofit organization that educates and empowers the boating community to protect and restore our oceans and coastal waters.
