Event description

Description

Please join SANDSWA as we get a behind-the-scenes tour of the research vessel Sally Ride. Owned by the US Navy and operated by Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego, the ship has been sailing on research missions to the Galapagos, the Gulf of Alaska, and beyond since its inaugural voyage in 2016. Researchers have used the vessel to study topics such as ocean floor geology, underwater acoustics, and climate change. The vessel is home in San Diego in March for maintenance and preparation for 2019 voyages to Sri Lanka, Guam, Taiwan, and Palau.

The tour will be hosted by SANDSWA member Melissa Miller, who has traveled aboard the ship assisting with research projects and writing dispatches from her research voyages. Communications staff from Scripps will also be available to answer your questions.

Location: 297 Rosecrans St 92106

It's the last driveway on the left before the street turns into the naval facility. Turn before the stoplight. There is a small sign saying Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Please park in the lot immediately inside the gate on the right, and then continue down the driveway on foot to Building 1 to check in with the guard.

Important: To board the vessel, visitors must show government-issued ID, and must be wearing close-toed shoes.
