WHO SAID IN A CHARTER DAY ADDRESS

MARCH 22, 1950

“But a university is not great because it has many hundreds of buildings, thousands of employees, tens of thousands of students or millions of dollars of annual income. A university is not great because it has elegant classrooms, laboratories full of equipment, a well stocked library, a business-like administration or a winning football team.

Like all human institutions, a university is the product of the work and devotion of individual men and women, and it can be great only in so far as it can obtain the fullest measure of creative accomplishment from the men and women who give it life and meaning.”

Staff and students of the Marine Biological Station at Coronado, 1904. Seated left to right: John F. Bovard, Effie Rigden Michener, Alice Robertson, Calvin O. Esterly. Standing: Robert Day Williams, B. D. Billinghurst, William E. Ritter, Loye H. Miller, Charles A. Kofoid and Harry Beal Torrey.

SCRIPPS INSTITUTION OF OCEANOGRAPHY ARCHIVES

http://scrippsarchives.ucsd.edu/

http://nsdl.sdsc.edu/

Data, documents and images from 822 expeditions by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) since 1903 are becoming web-accessible under a usage policy through the new SIOExplorer project, and will become part of the overall NSF-funded National Science Digital Library (NSDL). The effort is a collaboration among researchers at Scripps, computer scientists from the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), and archivists and librarians from the UCSD Library.

Littoral cells along the southern California coast and the southward termination of each

at submarine canyons.

From Inman and Frautschy 1966.

Figure 11

Oceanside littoral cell that extends from Dana Point to

the La Jolla canyons. The arrow indicates predominant

longshore current direction measured between 1950

and 1978. Since 1978, currents seem to have been more

variable. A recent investigation of Carlsbad Canyon

indicates that this canyon may be more important in

trapping sediment than generally had been assumed.

Oceanside Littoral Cell

Investigators have recognized a series of littoral cells along southern California (Emery 1960:27; Inman and Chamberlain 1960). These cells are based on general southerly drift of sediment, largely derived from rivers, and the entrapment of this sediment by submarine canyons which carry it out to sea (fig. 10) and by points of land that jut out perpendicular to the coast. The Oceanside Littoral Cell includes the area from Dana Point to La Jolla (fig. 11). This cell may be further subdivided at Carlsbad Submarine Canyon, although this generally was not recognized in the past.

:tu: The Faulted Coast at San Onofre and the Nuclear Power Plant

San Onofre State Park and Camp Pendleton are located in the north central portion of the Oceanside Littoral cell (fig. 12). A general idea of the character of the area is shown in figure 13, a photo taken when only the first building phase
