Another Brittle Star City

The daily video logs from the Finding Coral Expedition just keep getting better and better. Production quality is excellent, especially the mixed audio tracks. Audio is too often overlooked in deep-sea video.

In this video log my PhD advisor, Dr. Thomas Shirley, reports back on the experience of his first solo-dive in the Deep Worker submersible in the coastal ocean off British Colombia. He descends upon thousands of brittle stars, and wonders if “echinoderms rule the world”.
