Taking a Deep Dive: How the Oceans Impact Our Life on Earth
Dr. David Gallo

The oceans produce 50% of our oxygen, nearly 2 billion people depend directly on the sea for the majority of their protein, and more than 90% of earth’s precipitation is controlled by ocean waters. More than 70% of the surface of our planet is covered by ocean, yet to date less than 8% of the oceans have been explored. In this Thought Series® presentation, Dr. David Gallo highlights why we need to recognize the oceans’ critical role in providing the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat.
