Scripps Institution of Oceanography
Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Deigo, is one of the oldest, largest, and most important centers for ocean and earth science research, education, and public service in the world. Research at Scripps Institution of Oceanography encompasses physical, chemical, biological, geological, and geophysical studies of the oceans and earth.
Among the more than 300 research programs under way at Scripps, most are interdisciplinary, linking discoveries in one subject to advances in other studies. This approach to basic science is now being applied to how the physical environment affects life systems and to aspects of global change, ocean pollution, and marine resources. Ongoing investigations include the topography and composition of the sea floor, waves and currents, and the interchanges between the oceans and atmosphere. Other relevant research information is profiled in research areas of: Oceans and Global Change (e.g. abrupt climate change, climate monitoring from deep space, ocean climate profiling, and communicating global climate change science); Technology and Support of Oceans and Atmospheric Research; and Coastal Resources.
