“The only way to understand human impacts on climate and the coastal ocean is to study basic processes. How does our natural environment work and how do our actions affect it? The SPOT is a critical asset that allows us to answer these questions.”

-Roberta Marinelli, Director of the Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies
