Marine Life Research Group, Scripps Institution of Oceanography

Data Center Description
The Marine Life Research Group (MLRG) and Center for Coastal
Studies (CCS) have merged to form a new division, the
Integrative Oceanography Division (IOD) at Scripps Institution
of Oceanography.

The Marine Life Research Group is a group of scientists at
Scripps Institution of Oceanography that study the physics,
chemistry, biology, and meteorology of the California Current.
Long- term time-series, such as the CalCOFI and Shore Station
programs, provide a growing dataset that help scientists monitor
climatological changes. MLRG scientists, along with the other
California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigations
(CalCOFI) groups (the Coastal Fisheries Resources Division of
the Southwest Fisheries Science Center [NOAA / NMFS ], and the
Calif. Dept. of Fish & Game) conduct quarterly cruises off
California, continuing the time-series study of the California
Current ecosystem established in 1949.
