This episode was guest produced by my friend and colleague Ari Daniel Shapiro, host and producer of Ocean Gazing, a podcast about the science of the seas. First, Ari brings us to an underwater lab off the coast of Key West where scientists study the effects of CO2 on the coral reef. Then he visits a pontoon boat off the Oregon coast where researchers use light to study the seas.
