Earle for her dedication over more than six decades to exploring and researching the oceans, to knowledge of the seabed and to the integrated conservation of the seas, which has become one of the environmental challenges of our time.

Known as ‘Her Deepness’, her wide-ranging work has been fundamental for raising awareness of the importance of the oceans as a common source of wealth, at serious risk due to the accumulation of plastics and pollutant discharges which threaten human health and biodiversity throughout the planet.
