  4. Fred Noel Spiess (1919 - 2006) was an oceanographer and marine explorer at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. He joined the Marine Physical Laboratory at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in 1952 and served as director of the laboratory from 1958 to 1980. He served as director of the Scripps Institution from 1964 to 1965. Among his many other achievements helped create and develop the R/P FLIP, a 355-foot manned research vessel and floating instrument platform. FLIP is towed out to sea and one end is submerged. Most of its hull is under water, but the crew and instruments are housed in a 55-foot-long tip that remains above the surface of the ocean. Unknown date.
