The Future of Iconic Ocean Temperature Measurement Series to Be Considered

October 4, 2016

Scientists will convene Oct. 7 at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego to consider the future of one of the world’s longest continuous records of ocean conditions. Managers of the program, which observed the centennial of the first temperature measurement at Scripps Pier in August, will take up…

Scientists Publish 37-Year Record of Ocean Acidification off Southern California

November 27, 2023

For the first time, scientists at UC San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography have published nearly four decades’ worth of dissolved carbon dioxide measurements from waters off Southern California.

All-Female Science Party Aboard R/V Sally Ride Continues 71-year CalCOFI Measurement Series

August 27, 2020

…hands-on knowledge about their sampling instruments. The new COVID-19 restrictions—including a six-day hotel isolation and three swab tests before boarding the ship—meant non-sailing technicians could not come to the dock to set up equipment. Subsequently, our setup and training involved online protocols, pre-cruise socially-distanced walkthroughs of plankton net deployments, and…

Scientists used tools of genetics research akin to those used in genealogical research to evaluate the diversity of marine life off the California coast

New Study Finds Microplastic Throughout Monterey Bay

June 6, 2019

A newly-published study in Scientific Reports shows that plastic debris less than 5 millimeters across, known as microplastic, is common from the surface to the seafloor. It may also be entering marine food webs, both at the surface and in the deep.

New NSF Grant to Scripps and Oregon State Supports Seagoing Research Technicians for Arctic Science

September 8, 2011

A new $2.1 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego and Oregon State University (OSU) will allow the most advanced seagoing technical personnel and their expertise to support science in the world’s northernmost seas.
