Ocean films from
Scripps Institution of Oceanography
San Diego is blessed to be home of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO), one of the oldest, largest, and most important centers for ocean and earth science research, education, and public service in the world. Their work helps us understand global issues and enables us to solve the ocean/coastline interface in San Diego County.

"Oceans on the Precipice" - Threats to marine ecosystems from overfishing, pollution and climate change must be addressed to halt downward trends
"Wiring the Oceans" - A new state-of-the-art global observatory currently under construction is about to launch ocean science light years ahead
"Inside the Plastic Vortex" - A groundbreaking Scripps voyage led by students helps define a rising environmental threat
