Biology Meets Subduction follows a group of DCO scientists on a unique 12-day sampling expedition across the Costa Rica convergent margin. The film showcases a team of DCO early career scientists as they investigate volcanic sites through the lenses of biology, chemistry, physics, and geology. The science team partnered with Co Lab Productions to create the film.
DCO’s Peter Barry (Oxford University, UK), Karen Lloyd (University of Tennessee, USA), Donato Giovannelli (Earth-Life Science Instititute, Japan), and Katie Pratt (University of Rhode Island, USA) joined Co Lab’s Justine Simonson and Marcus Lehman on a panel at Goldschmidt, where they fielded questions about the experience.
The Biology Meets Subduction project is part of a DCO synthesis effort to cultivate interdisciplinary products and activities to explain carbon in deep Earth. Visit the project website to learn more.
