The Center partners with numerous organizations both within UC San Diego and externally to advance its research goals and mission. 


Argo is an international program that collects ocean information using a fleet of robotic instruments that drift with the ocean currents and move up and down between the surface and a mid-water level. The floats measure temperature, salinity, pressure down to 2000m and contribute to a global dataset.

Improving resilience in California and Nevada by providing decision makers with usable climate information through integrating cutting edge physical and social science.

California Sea Grant is a unique partnership that unites the resources of the Federal Government, the State of California and universities across the state to create knowledge, products and services that benefit the economy, the environment and the citizens of California.

By bringing the ocean and atmosphere into the lab, CAICE is studying the influence of aerosols on the environment.

Providing 21st century water cycle science, technology and outreach to support effective policies and practices that address the impacts of extreme weather and water events on the environment, people and the economy of Western North America.

The Coastal Data Information Program (CDIP) measures, analyzes, archives and disseminates coastal environment data for use by coastal engineers, planners and managers, as well as scientists and mariners.
