 This month we turn our attention to the west and pressing issues related to our coastline and oceans.  We will view several of the best SIO videos, get expert input and Q & A with Dr. Ralph Keeling and Dr. Falk Feddersen.

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. 

Guest Experts:

Falk Fedderson Falk Fedderson is an Associate Research Oceanographer with the Integrated Oceanography Division of SIO. His area of interest is surf-zone and near-shore physical Oceanography. He has also co-hosted with the Ocean Institute  the Surf Science Teen Conferences at SIO for high school students.
