The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at UC San Diego has recently announced the creation of HPC@MSI, a program aimed at facilitating the use of high-performance computing (HPC) by Minority Serving Institutions (MSI).
Direction and spread of an active wildfire are driven by fuel, topography and prevailing wind conditions. While data on fuel and topography can be mapped before the start of a wildfire, prevailing wind conditions are difficult to chart given their variability and uncertainty.
Staff from the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego recently worked with middle and high school students from the Pala Native American Youth Council to conduct an informal data science study on the pH levels of the San Luis Rey River that flows through Pala tribal land.
Scientists study the topography—the forms and features of the landscape—to measure and observe changes at the Earth’s surface over time. While some changes are the result of natural processes like fluvial erosion and coastal erosion, the topography can also change due to anthropogenic forces...

For scientists in observational disciplines, data is the lifeblood of research. Collecting, organizing and sharing data both within and across fields drives pivotal discoveries that benefit society and help make it more secure.
According to a 2021 World Health Organization report, the global COVID-19 pandemic caused an increase in tuberculosis (TB) deaths – 1.5 million in 2020 versus 1.4 million in 2019 – due to a lack of efficient diagnosis and treatment.
Since the start of the pandemic, a group of UC San Diego researchers have been meeting weekly with epidemiologists at the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) to discuss COVID-19 dynamics, analyze populations at higher risk and explore the county’s pandemic response and new ways…
On Saturday, Dec. 4, a total eclipse of the sun will occur at 07:33 (Universal Time) over Antarctica and parts of the South Pacific near the southern tip of Chile. The solar corona – visible to the naked eye only during a total eclipse – will be viewable for just over one minute.
