A team of scientists including geochemists from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego is launching a series of research flights this month over the remote Southern Ocean in an effort to better understand just how much carbon dioxide the icy waters are able to lock away.
El Niño, the climate pattern primarily characterized by a warmer-than-average eastern Pacific Ocean, has definitely taken shape off the shores of San Diego. It has brought with it many of its classic calling cards from warm beach water to the appearance of tropical marine fishes several hundred miles…
This week, a delegation of UC San Diego scientists and students began their work of bringing climate science to international climate negotiations in Paris, but there was progress even before the talks formally began.
University of California, San Diego scientists and students will be traveling to international climate negotiations in Paris next week to spur the momentum toward effective international climate action that UC San Diego scientists have been instrumental in creating
In largely unseen ways, humans are changing the character of the deep oceans, disrupting environmental conditions and threatening biodiversity to an extent that could require hundreds of years or more for natural systems to recover.
As one of the largest El Niños in recent years continues to develop in the Pacific Ocean, Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego is calling on the public to help document a historic climate event.
University of California climate experts announced 10 scalable solutions for moving the world towards carbon neutrality at a summit held at UC San Diego that brought the state’s top climate researchers and policymakers into the same room.
California Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law Oct. 9 legislation that will improve the state’s ability to respond to major precipitation episodes and better manage water supply by expanding climate research on the causes of drought and flood led by Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California…
The journal Nature ranked UC San Diego first in the United States and fourth worldwide in earth and environmental research in a new survey that rated institutions based on their total contribution to studies published in major science journals.
Scripps Oceanography researchers release early results of a seismic survey that shows how wave energy from as far away as the North Pacific Ocean shakes ice shelves in Antarctica and contributes to their breakup and collapse.
