Producer Lia Kvatum takes you behind the scenes at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center to observe an experiment examining how life on Earth would be impacted if the ozone layer disappeared. She follows photobiologist Pat Neale as he tests how different segments of the sun's ultraviolet spectrum affect photosynthesis in the ocean's phytoplankton. The photoinhibitron, which Neale refers to simply as "the beast," is an essential tool for this research. Credits: Anne Goetz, Editor; Lia Kvatum, Producer/Writer/Camera; Tony Franken, Music.
