Based at the University of California at San Diego, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography has created the Explorations site to educate the public about their projects and research. On their website, visitors will find a trove of multimedia features, magazine articles, and information about conservation activities designed to protect the world's oceans for future generations. Clicking on the "Multimedia" tab will take visitors to featured short videos of research explorations to the Arctic to look into climate change. Visitors will also find an archive of videos, podcasts, slideshows, and more. There is also a "Voyager for Kids" area that contains material specifically for the younger set. Finally, users can also use the "Easy Share" button to share Scripps news with friends or colleagues.
