Mission Blue Producer Discusses Working with Oceanographer Sylvia Earle

The new documentary Mission Blue -- currently available on Netflix -- charts the life of oceanographer Sylvia Earle. Earle edits books in the Gulf of Mexico Origin, Waters, and Biota series, sponsored by the Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and published by Texas A&M University Press.

The books, written by top researchers in Gulf of Mexico studies, evaluate topics such as biodiversity, economic factors, geology, and more.

The TED blog recently sat down with Mission Blue producer Fisher Stevens, who said he set out to make a film about the Explorer in Residence's work and ended up becoming fascinated by her.
