Name Director / Principal Investigator Description Type
Air Sea Interaction Lab MELVILLE, Ken

The primary area of research is air-sea interaction, including the topics of surface wave dynamics, air-sea fluxes, upper ocean turbulence, including Langmuir circulations, and the remote sensing of ocean surface phenomena using electromagnetic and acoustic techniques.

Laboratory
Buckingham Lab BUCKINGHAM, MICHAEL

Performs research in acoustic theory as it relates to applications such as oceanography and physics.

Laboratory
Center for Aerosol Impacts on Climate and the Environment (CAICE) PRATHER, KIMBERLY
DEANE, GRANT

CAICE is a Center for Chemical Innovation focused on the fundamental chemistry behind the impact of aerosol particles on our climate.

External Affiliated Center
Coastal Observing Research and Development Center (CORDC) TERRILL, ERIC

Develops and implements coastal observatories, serves as a science and technical interface with local, state, and federal agencies, and manages various system components.

Facility
Innovative Marine Technology Laboratory STOKES, Dale

Our mission is to pursue scientific studies in underwater acoustics, small-scale physical oceanography (coastal processes, air-sea gas transfer) and biological oceanography.

Laboratory
Jaffe Laboratory for Underwater Imaging JAFFE, JULES

Research interests are broadly concerned with the use of new technology for observing oceanic phenomena and the development of inverse techniques for their interpretation.

Laboratory
Marine Physical Laboratory (MPL) Division
Multiscale Ocean Dynamics Group ALFORD, MATTHEW

Multiscale Ocean Dynamics (MOD) is a specialized team of oceanographers, engineers, and graduate students solving vexing problems in ocean physics and biology.  We develop, build, and deploy novel scientific instrumentation to observe the ocean in new ways.  Our diverse team collectively spends several months a year at sea making fresh discoveries across the world's oceans.

Laboratory
Noise Lab GERSTOFT, PETER

Focuses on physics-based signal processing mostly using just weak noise as a source.

Laboratory
Ocean Optics Research Laboratory STRAMSKI, DARIUSZ
REYNOLDS, RICK

Focused on the development of an understanding of interaction of light with seawater constituents, variability in ocean optical properties, and propagation of light within the ocean and across the air-water boundary.

Laboratory
Project Recover TERRILL, ERIC

A collaborative effort to enlist 21st century science and technology to find the final underwater resting places of Americans missing in action since World War II.

Program
Scripps Acoustic Ecology Laboratory BAUMANN-PICKERING, SIMONE

Investigates biological and ecological questions that range from a basic understanding of short and long-term behavioral patterns and geographic distribution of animals, to questions like habitat preference and quality, predator-prey interactions, or adaptations to anthropogenic impacts and a changing environment.

Laboratory
Southern California Coastal Ocean Observing System DAVIS, RUSS
GOERICKE, RALF
GUZA, Bob
MC GOWAN, JOHN
RUDNICK, DANIEL
TERRILL, ERIC
THOMAS, Julie

Our primary goal is to provide the scientific data and information needed to inform decision-making and better understand the changing conditions of the coastal ocean in Southern California.

Program
Whale Acoustic Lab HILDEBRAND, JOHN
WIGGINS, SEAN

Our mission is to advance the study of marine animal population abundance, seasonality and behavior using acoustic techniques.
