In the fall of 2010, researchers from SDSU, SIO, and other coral reef ecologists collaborated together for a research cruise to the Northern Line Islands, home to the some of the most pristine coral reef ecosystems still thriving in the world today.
Levi Lewis, a PhD student in the Smith Lab, talks about his amazing opportunity to act as the student representative of Scripps Institution of Oceanography and listen to the Dalai Lama speak at SIO on April 19, 2012.
Jill Harris, a PhD student in the Smith Lab, talks about her experience at the annual reception for SIO donors and fellowship recipients at Birch Aquarium.
Members of the Smith Lab head the effort to install Scripps Institution of Oceanography’s (SIO) first ocean acidification monitoring system. This monitoring system will provide essential data that will allow researchers to monitor changes in ocean chemistry over time and help them better understand the effects of these changes to local marine ecosystems.
