A cooperative research agreement creating the Joint Institute for Marine Observations to study long-term global environmental processes has been reached between the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and Scripps Institution of Oceanography of the University of California, San Diego. According to NOAA officials, the purpose of the institute is to enhance research and collect oceanic and atmospheric data important to understanding global change and other long-term phenomena. Work will include basic science investigations, instrument development, acquiring and processing environmental data, applying the information to models, and predicting future conditions.
