R/V Sally Ride and the Thomas Fire– In December of 2017 I joined an oceanographic expedition known as ACIDD in the Santa Barbara Channel. In the weeks before the ship was scheduled to leave port, the largest wildfire in California history tore through the coast we were to cruise past. This gave the scientists an unprecedented opportunity to study the effects of fire and ash on the ocean, something that's never been done before. This illustration was made for that moment and was published around the web.
