Mountain ranges longer than the Andes. Trenches alive with extreme animals. Tectonic plates that grind and pull, creating earthquakes, volcanoes, and tsunamis....

Vicki Ferrini studies and explores the Earth’s oceans—from their darkest depths to the emergence of new volcanic islands. Her goal? Creating a map of the entire ocean floor and understanding the geological processes that create its most mind-blowing features. Through ocean expeditions, underwater robotics, data analysis, and visualization, Vicki Ferrini is uncovering a never-before-seen blue world.

Before & After

--Groove to sea shanties, surf music, and whale song

--Dive into the Deep Blue Sea, a beguiling cocktail from Davy Jones’ Locker!

--Plunge into the sea-salty Q&A

Vicki Ferrini is an ocean researcher at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.
