A massive school of Northern Anchovy formed a dark band off La Jolla on July 8, 2014. Scripps scientists, who haven't seen such an aggregation in more than 30 years, said it is unclear why the unusually large school moved into shallow waters off the coast. Members of the Scripps Marine Vertebrate Collection have collected samples for study.

+Antar Martin As you may be able to see, the school came close to the surf line, so around 70-80 feet.

Stanley Miller, the late UC San Diego chemist whose landmark experiment published in 1953 showed how some of the molecules of life could have formed on a young Earth, left behind boxes of experimental samples that he never analyzed. The first-ever analysis of Miller’s old samples has revealed another way that important molecules could have formed on early Earth.

The passageway that links the Pacific Ocean to the Indian Ocean is acting differently because of climate change and now its new behavior could in turn affect climate in both ocean basins in new ways.

Amazing people. Though it seems at times that your work and admonitions fall on deaf ears, millions of people understand the import of this work, and the possibilities for the future.

Groundbreaking discoveries at Scripps inspire solutions to some of the greatest environmental challenges we face today.
Introduction

A department of UC San Diego, Scripps Institution of Oceanography is one of the oldest, largest, and most important centers for ocean, Earth and atmospheric science research, education, and public service in the world. Research at Scripps  encompasses physical, chemical, biological, geological, and geophysical studies of the oceans, Earth, and planets.  Scripps undergraduate and graduate programs provide transformative educational and research opportunities in ocean, Earth, and atmospheric sciences, as well as degrees in climate science and policy and marine biodiversity and conservation.  

The Scripps Fleet of four oceanographic research vessels and the research platform FLIP make up one of the largest academic fleets in the world.  A new ocean-class research ship that will be operated by Scripps on behalf of the Office of Naval Research is under construction and will join the fleet in 2015.
