Centers, Labs, and Projects

A long-term systematic observing system of the physical state of the global ocean.
Center for Western Weather and Water Extremes (CW3E)
Provide water cycle science, technology and outreach to support effective policies and practices that address the impacts of extreme weather and water events on the environment, people and the economy of western North America.
Giddings Lab
Specializing in estuarine and coastal processes with an interest in interdisciplinary projects that address how physics impacts important biological and chemical processes in the coastal environment.
Multiscale Ocean Dynamics (MOD)
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.
Sugihara Lab
Much of the work from this lab involves inductive theoretical approaches to understanding nature from observational data.
