Centers, Labs, and Programs
One of Scripps's longest-running data centers, serving reference-quality hydrographic ocean data to an international community for over 20 years
The Global Ocean Biogeochemical float program supports robotic ocean-monitoring float profiles around the globe that are used by scientists and educators to better understand ocean health.
Provides a critical service to the oceanographic community by innovating new drifter designs and sensors as demanded/needed by science applications and evolving observing system requirements.
Upper ocean temperature profiles
Our research resides at a synergetic overlap between geophysical fluid dynamics, physical oceanography and climate dynamics. We are particularly interested in ocean mesoscale and submesoscale dynamics, air-sea interactions and sea-ice interactions.
