Birth of an Ocean

More than four billion years ago, the most important event in Earth's history took place - the ocean was born. It completely transformed the planet, creating a watery oasis that gave rise to the air we breathe, our climate, and a stunning array of life, including the critical species that first crawled out of the sea to inhabit land. The ocean is what transformed Earth into the livable, blue planet it is today.

As BIRTH OF AN OCEAN reveals, we are just beginning to understand the complexity of the ocean and the immense influence it has on the planet and our own survival.
