  7. Michael Edward Huber, a Scripps Institution of Oceanography graduate student, conducts experiments in his lab. His 1983 Thesis (Ph.D.) was titled: Ethology and population biology of Trapezia, a xanthid crab symbiotic with reef corals : with special reference to territoriality and speciation. In 1988, Huber moved to the University of Papua New Guinea to study and dive on some of the world's most spectacular coral reefs. He served as Head of the University's marine research station on Motupore Island, and became increasingly interested in marine environmental science, especially with regard to reefs, mangroves, seagrass beds, and other tropical systems. This interest continued to grow during four years as Director of a marine research station on the Great Barrier Reef. November 3, 1980.

  9. Lab of Charles D. Keeling at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Keeling recorded atmospheric carbon dioxide at the Mauna Loa Observatory, thus showing an anthropogenic contribution leading to the greenhouse effect. The Keeling Curve measures the progressive buildup of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, in the atmosphere. As a result Keeling was presented with a "special achievement award" from the 45th Vice President of the U.S. Albert Arnold Gore. In 2002, George W. Bush, 43rd President of U.S. presented Keeling with the National Medal of Science, the highest national award for scientific research lifetime achievement for 40 years of outstanding scientific research associated with monitoring of atmospheric carbon dioxide in connection with the Mauna Loa Observatory. October 19, 1988.
