World-Class Marine Research Centre

Date: 1/8/2013

Los Angeles’ community leaders outline a bold vision to transform, a 100-year-old pier in San Pedro, into a
world-class urban marine research and innovation centre. The 28-acre site will be called ‘AltaSea’ and the facility will feature circulating sea-water labs, offices, classrooms, lecture halls, support facilities, an interpretive center, and an opportunity to develop the world’s largest seawater wave tank for studying tsunamis and rogue waves.
