Climate, Atmospheric Sciences, and Physical Oceanography is the largest department at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. We are an active community of 42 professors and researchers, 20 post docs, and 47 grad students. Fourteen staff members assist the researchers in submitting over 100 proposals a year to over 26 agencies and managing roughly $48 million a year in extramural funding all in the pursuit of understanding the oceans and skies.
