SNEAK PEEK: UC San Diego and Scripps Institution of Oceanography are preparing for
the arrival of America’s newest oceanographic research vessel: R/V Sally Ride.
The U. S. Navy-constructed ship honors former UC San Diego professor Sally Ride
and comes equipped to perform research from coastlines and continental shelves
to the ocean’s deepest trenches. Using satellite telepresence, students and teachers
will experience ocean exploration while interacting with scientists at sea.
Stay tuned to TRI TONMAG.COM this summer for updates on the ship’s journey
down the West Coast to its new home at UC San Diego.
