Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) is one of the oldest centers for ocean and earth science research in the world. Since 1912, Scripps has been part of the University of California. During WWII, scientists at Scripps worked with the Navy to detect German U-boats, and played a key role in planning the D-Day invasion by developing a system for forecasting waves. The outset of the Cold War brought even more ambitious projects to Scripps' doorstep. During the 1960s, led by director Roger Revelle, it became the core around which UCSD was built, thereby sharing its history of scientific research and cooperation with the U.S. military with the new university.
