Labs

Research at the intersection of biological and microbial oceanography and functional genomics.

We analyze the interactions among marine ecology and biodiversity, fisheries, socioeconomics, climate change, and more.

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.

Organic molecules in natural waters can help us to understand the global cycling of biologically important elements like carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus.

We work in several different areas in infrasonics: source studies, propagation modeling, array processing, and wind noise reduction.

Develops models and analyzes observations to understand the microphysical and chemical evolution of aerosol particles in the atmosphere.

The Scripps O2 Program measures changes in atmospheric oxygen levels from air samples collected at stations around the world.

Studies the ecology of marine microbes, their diversity, and their population dynamics.

Focuses on the biogeochemical cycling of trace metals in marine systems.

We examine the diversity and activity of microbial life in the deep sea , including within the deepest ocean trenches.
