Why SIO

Eric and Elliott

Eric at the Birch Aquarium (Elliott Wing Benson for scale)

Nowhere else can a student, in preparing for his summer field work, in one day…

  • Do a sea trial of his new diving hood, gloves, and booties…
  • Consult master divers on their use of side-deck-mounted davits for CTD profiling…
  • Brainstorm net design plans with the collections manager of the largest pelagic invert collection in the world…
  • Go to a machine shop to discuss the custom manufacture of a net ring…
  • Stop by the office of the Cal-COFI equipment manager to discuss CTD insurance options…
  • Stop by his advisor’s office and make plans for a 100m towed hydrophone array.

Just saying. Go Scripps!
