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.
Scripps News (October 29th 2020)
Scripps Institution of Oceanography is one of five research institutions to assist in the creation of the new Global Ocean Biogeochemistry Array, an NSF-funded expansion of biogeochemical ocean monitoring with autonomous floats. "It's an evolution of how we're observing the ocean," says Lynne Talley, Scripps professor and co-principal investigator on the project. Scripps scientists will be building new floats and coordinating their deployments, producing readily-available data for researchers across the globe.

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.
