A major international project using undersea acoustics to directly measure ocean climate has been funded with a $35 million research contract procured by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California at San Diego.
Scripps scientists are the leading investigators in the 30-month Acoustic Thermometry of Ocean Climate (ATOC) project, which is being funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. The project will be led by Walter Munk, a professor of geophysics at Scripps. Eleven institutions and eight nations—Australia, Canada, France, Japan, New Zealand, Russia, Taiwan, and the United States—are involved in the project.
