The Jeffrey B. Graham Perspectives on Ocean
Science Lecture Series features engaging presentations on research
conducted worldwide by scientists from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at
UC San Diego. Scripps
scientists are exploring Earth’s mysteries in hundreds of research projects
under way on every continent. Learn
about science at Scripps and join researchers on their paths to discovery. Services available for the deaf or hard of hearing.

Sixth Annual Charles David Keeling Lecture
Dr. Clara Deser, climatologist from the National Center for Atmospheric Research
The Keeling Lecture series is in memory of distinguished Scripps
Professor Charles David Keeling's life and invaluable contributions to climate
science and Scripps. This year we are honored to host Dr. Clara Deser from
the National Center for Atmospheric Research. Clara is an internationally
recognized expert on global climate variability whose research is focused how
interactions between the atmosphere, ocean and sea ice influence climate.
Her presentation will focus current regional climate change in Europe and
the US, and how much can be attributed to natural versus human causes.
Clara’s work addresses a longstanding challenge for climate communicators –
articulating the reasons for differences between projections of global scale
climate change, which are strikingly consistent across climate models, and
projections of regional change, which are not.

The Amazing Diversity of Fishes
Dr. Phil Hastings, Marine Biologist
Fish showed up in the fossil record about 50 million years ago, and today, they are the most diverse group of vertebrate animals on the planet. Phil Hastings, Scripps Professor, and Curator of the SIO Marine Vertebrate Collection, will discuss the global diversity of fishes and will be available to sign his recently published book Fishes: A Guide to Their Diversity (University of California Press).

Glaciers Speak with Tongues of Ice
Grant Deane, Physical Oceanographer
Join Scripps Oceanographer Dr. Grant Deane as he takes us on a journey to the Arctic to investigate the "language" of calving and melting glaciers. Learn how Grant and his colleagues are using science to answer the intriguing question - can we understand and project changes in the Arctic using the sounds of water and ice?
