Centers, Labs, and Projects

Jaffe Laboratory for Underwater Imaging
Research interests are broadly concerned with the use of new technology for observing oceanic phenomena and the development of inverse techniques for their interpretation.
Ocean Optics Research Laboratory
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.
Scripps Photobiology Group
Focused on understanding the interactions between light and living organisms.
Deheyn Lab
Studying color and biological light in nature through their various forms and functions.
