About the Cruise

Cal-Echoes is a Scripps Institution of Oceanography student-led cruise that combined science at sea with science in the classroom.  Twenty-five scientists and ten educators travelled aboard the R/V Melville for nine days along the coast of Southern California.  We explored the present-day marine and coastal ecosystems and how they have changed over the past 15,000 years (from the last glacial period).

We invite you to relive our journey and explore the possibilities of science at sea!
