Come Join Us!

The San Diego Region is the heart of a rich and diverse collection of oceanographic research institutions, coastal resource agencies, private development firms, and foundations that all seek to understand and preserve the oceans. The Oceanography Program at Palomar College has a long history of bringing guest speakers to discuss their expertise in oceanographic subjects.  We especially seek to bring information about current events or cutting edge topics of oceanographic research that are of specific interest our college community.
