Center for Marine Biodiversity and Conservation
The Center for Marine Biodiversity and Conservation is a collaboration among NOAA, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego; and the San Diego Supercomputer Center. The collaboration provides interdisciplinary training linking the natural, social and informatic sciences with the goal of training the next generation of marine science scholars.
The Center for Marine Biodiversity and Conservation at Scripps Institution of Oceanography exists to promote a holistic, interdisciplinary approach in the education of future leaders in marine biodiversity and conservation, and in the direction and application research to the conservation of marine biodiversity. We train scientists to work at the interface between the natural and social sciences and to effectively communicate scientific knowledge to decision makers and the public.
