Scripps Institution of Oceanography
Scripps Institution of Oceanography is a global leader in understanding and protecting the planet. Scripps gives society the data and tools it needs to understand the future of Earth’s natural systems. On a mission to understand and protect our planet, Scripps researchers have transformed how we see it.
Scripps designs and operates vast robotic observing networks in the oceans and finds innovations that help us manage our ocean food supply. Scripps identifies natural variations in climate and distinguishes them from human-caused ones. Scripps helps California determine how to save every drop of water it can in its reservoirs and helps coastal cities preserve the beaches that drive tourism. Scripps pinpoints seismic hazards and provides the U.S. military what the Navy likes to call “environmental intelligence.” Scripps Oceanography pioneered areas of science that are familiar such as wave predictions and measurements of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. All of this isn’t possible without concerned individuals like you.
Now more than ever, we need your help to understand what is happening in nature, what it has in store for us, and what we can do to conserve and protect our most valuable resources.
