UC San Diego's Scripps Institution of Oceanography researchers integrate observations with theoretical and computational models to understand ocean and Earth systems. Scripps faculty developed and continue to refine geophysical inverse theory, advance techniques in data assimilation to infer large-scale ocean circulation, and develop new applications for satellite-derived data, such as ocean bathymetry and monitoring sub-glacial lakes.
