The Scripps Polar Center brings together scientists from the three research sections of Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego who investigate everything from ocean physics to the ecology of polar organisms. We aim to address the complex questions of today’s polar regions and to train a new generation of scientists capable of interdisciplinary research.
San Diego Union Tribune (January 5th 2021)
On the latest episode of the San Diego Union Tribune's Name Drop podcast, Helen Fricker discusses her experiences in Antarctica, the importance of ice sheets to the globe, and what it's like to study the polar regions using advanced satellite observational instruments.
Read about the latest research, announcements, and community engagement from the Polar Center.
Education and Activities
In addition to a Geophysics graduate program, Scripps Polar Center professors offer several undergraduate and graduate-level courses in glaciology. Syllabi and information for current students can be accessed here.
Once a week, we host talks with glaciologists across the field, discussing their newest research and engaging with our academic community.
