Below the surface of the Earth’s oceans lies a mysterious and relatively unknown world. With a diversity of life that rivals the rainforest, the ocean is one of the world’s largest ecosystems, but relatively little is known about what lives in its great depths.
Drain the Ocean draws on the latest scientific knowledge and uses CGI animation to remove the water, revealing a landscape of unimaginable scale – with underwater mountain ranges long enough to stretch round the world one and a half times – and with tens of thousands of mud volcanoes and other features that are more dynamic than anything found on land.
