«The greatest strength of At Every Depth is its storytelling. Tales of scientific investigation join explorations of Indigenous peoples’ connection to the sea and how ocean changes affect tradition and communities. The authors at once provide information and inspire with emotion.»

Ellen Prager, author of <i>Sex, Drugs, and Sea Slime: The Oceans' Oddest Creatures and Why They Matt

«The world’s oceans are changing at a drastic pace. Beneath the waves and along the coasts, climate change and environmental degradation have spurred the most radical transformations in human history. In response, the people who know the ocean most intimately are taking action for the sake of our shared future. In “At Every Depth,” the oceanographer Tessa Hill and the science journalist Eric Simons profile efforts to understand and protect marine environments. They delve into the many human connections to the ocean — journeying to places as far-flung as coral reefs, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, and the poles. In this way, they provide perspective on the changing oceans, letting us see how our relationships with the oceans are changing too.»

Yale Climate Connections

«​​Tessa Hill and Eric Simons’s At Every Depth: Our Growing Knowledge of the Changing Oceans (Columbia University Press) is an antidote to indifference, a call to deepened attention. From interviews with oceanographers and narrative presentation of their findings, the authors convey something of the passionate attention that goes into the detailed understanding of a given aquatic ecosystem.»

Inside Higher Ed

«At Every Depth takes us from rocky shore surveys to diminishing riches on coral reefs to the once trackless deep sea, chronicling the greatest discoveries and changes for every major habitat in the oceans. The riveting stories of Indigenous peoples, scientists, and explorers are essential for everyone who cares about the oceans.»

Drew Harvell, author of <i>Ocean Outbreak: Confronting the Rising Tide of Marine Disease</i> and <i>

«With her expansive knowledge of our oceans and our warming world, Hill has teamed up with science writer and educator Eric Simons to produce At Every Depth: Our Growing Knowledge of the Changing Oceans, a book that surprised me with its fresh take on the effects that humans are having on the great bodies of water that cover our planet. This book is unique. [It] is a welcome addition to the conversation on climate change, pollution, plastics, and the changes we have brought to the oceans and to ourselves.»

The Green Dispatch

«This is one of the best books I’ve read in a really long time. Tessa Hill is an amazing scientist and Eric Simons is a very talented writer—together they’ve developed one heck of a book, interweaving personal narrative and scientific research in perfect balance.»

Angee Doerr, Oregon State University

«An incisive look at a world in crisis. This troubling assessment of how humans are devastating the world’s oceans hits home.»
