Scripps Earth Exploration Center

The Scripps Institution of Oceanography studies much more than the ocean. Thinc developed a conceptual framework that would expand the facility into a full Earth systems science center. Instead of categorizing topics according to discipline (e.g., geology, chemistry, biology) or discrete systems (e.g., air, land, water), SEEC will use dynamic categories of investigation that underlie current research to highlight connections between Earth systems and their impact on humans and society.
