Scripps Hydroclimate
Weather Observation Program


Camp Pendleton and the Santa Margarita Ecological Reserve are linked by the Santa Margarita River. This river is formed by the confluence of Temecula Creek and Murrieta Creek near Temecula, CA. The Santa Margarita River is one of the major study areas of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography Hydroclimate Research Program.
