Abstract : In March 2009, distinguished scientists, national leaders, and friends gathered at the Roger Revelle Centennial Symposium, the scientific focus of Scripps Institution of Oceanography's celebration of Roger Revelle's 100th birthday UC San Diego founder and former Scripps Director Roger Revelle was a world-renowned scientist and is considered one of the true pioneers of climate change research. Revelle revolutionized how we think about the ocean and climate, and how science and technology truly benefit society. As such, the Roger Revelle Centennial Symposium honored Revelle's continuing legacy, and highlighted the influence his work continues to exert upon the scientific community and society at large We were honored with thoughtful and engaging presentations, and reflections from many globally distinguished scientists and policymakers who discussed the interrelationships of climate change, ocean and environmental health, national security, and energy independence, and the critical role science and technology can play in meeting today's global challenges. In today's conflicted world, it is important to remember Revelle's vision of the profound effect technology and scientific discovery can have upon all aspects of modern society.
