SANDSWA Members-Only Event:
Tour the Research Vessel Sally Ride
When: March 14, 4:30-6:30pm
Where: 297 Rosecrans St
San Diego, CA 92106
Please join SANDSWA as we get a behind-the-scenes tour of the research vessel Sally Ride. Owned by the U.S. Navy and operated by Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego, the ship has sailed on research missions to the Galapagos, the Gulf of Alaska, and beyond since its inaugural voyage in 2016. Researchers have used the vessel to study topics such as ocean floor geology, underwater acoustics, and climate change. The vessel is home in San Diego in March for maintenance and preparation for 2019 voyages to Sri Lanka, Guam, Taiwan, and Palau.
The tour will be hosted by SANDSWA member Melissa Miller, who has traveled aboard the ship assisting with research projects and writing dispatches. Scripps communications staff will also be available to answer your questions. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in carpooling from the Torrey Pines Mesa area.
IMPORTANT: To board the vessel, you must be a SANDSWA member, have RSVP’d (below), show government-issued ID, and wear close-toed shoes.
