On Feb. 17 CCE will set sail on the R.V. Revelle for a month-long research cruise investigating the processes driving long-term change in the California Current coastal upwelling biome. Our team of scientists, students, and volunteers will focus on elucidating the impacts of multiple stressors on open-ocean ecosystems during marine heatwave disturbances. We will also use cutting edge optical imaging approaches to investigate relationships between plankton taxa at high spatial resolution. This research is built upon, and continues, long-term efforts to quantify the rates underlying long-term change in biogeochemical properties and marine populations in the CCE.

Two recent CCE publications on ocean acidification were highlighted in the UCSD Scripps News:
We will meet from 1:00-4:00 pm (PT) to present/discuss various CCE research, mainly on the 5 core measurements of LTER sites. Vaughan Hall, room 100.
CCE REUs 2023: Carlo Makeever, Iris Smyrl, Meghan Kaschner, Angeles Rios, Jack Saade, Elizabeth Burstein, and Matteo Biscotti.
Seven Research Experience for Undergrads (REUs) started 26 June in various SIO labs, and will be mentored for 12 weeks by CCE personnel. They will gain research experience, professional development, attend scientific seminars, deliver a final presentation, and more – to end on 15 September!
