NIST awards $24M in grants for new research facilities
Date:11/24/2008

begin construction on the UC Berkeley campus. The facility will offer a low-vibration environment, low electromagnetic radiation interference, low acoustic noise, and temperature stability unmatched by other facilities at the university. The NIST funding will enable the university to build out the space allocated for the center with critically needed infrastructure.

Marine Ecosystem Sensing, Observation and Modeling Laboratory (MESOM)

  • University of California at San Diego
  • NIST Award: $11,998,500
  • Cost-share: $11,998,500
  • Information contact: Cindy Clark, (858) 534-1294, cclark@ucsd.edu

The new MESOM Laboratory will be built on the campus of Scripps Institution of Oceanography, a research institution and graduate and undergraduate school within the University of California at San Diego. The proposed three-story building will have a total of more than 18,000 assignable square feet divided between laboratories, offices and conference rooms. The facility will house a new multidisciplinary program at Scripps to integrate the development of physical, biological and chemical sensorsand the autonomous ocean-going platforms to support themto conduct long-term observation of the ocean ecology of the California Current Ecosystem (CCE), a major Pacific biome, and forecast changes based on physical and biological numerical models. The program will make the CCE a model for understanding processes across the world's oceans. The program builds on Scripps' 50-year history and expertise in long-term oceanographic and climate measurement programs.

In addition to providing much needed laboratory space for this work, the MESOM Laboratory will enable Scripps to consolidate researchers from a variety of disciplineswho otherwise would be split among five or more different buildingsin a single dedicated facility to promote more productive discussions and interactions.
