The ECOBLOG has been restored! The links to videos which were previously formatted with Splashcast have been revised to once again lead to the intended videos. Links to videos which are no longer found on the internet have been removed. I have already added many new video links to the Scripps section and a couple to the Mind & Body section. Next I will again start updating the In The News section from time to time. Come back as I will also be adding more video finds to the various sections. Coming soon a Weather section.

Scripps oceanographic research vessels and research platform FLIP make up one of the largest academic fleets in the world. The institution's newest research vessel, the 274-foot R/V Roger Revelle, is named for the former director of Scripps and founder of the University of California, San Diego. Scripps ships have state-of-the-art research instruments to study marine life, the oceans, the seafloor, and the atmosphere. Cruises vary from local trips to expeditions as long as two and one-half years. Scripps research ships, available to scientists around the world, have steamed more than six million nautical miles in support of science and the academic community.
