Atmospheric carbon dioxide measured at NOAA’s Mauna Loa Atmospheric Baseline Observatory peaked for 2021 in May at a monthly average of 419 parts per million (ppm), the highest level since accurate measurements began 63 years ago, Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego announced today.
Richard Seymour, a renowned research engineer at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego, who envisioned a network to collect coastal data as a graduate student, died May 22, 2021. He was 91 years old.
Scientists at UC San Diego, San Diego State University and colleagues find that extreme heat and elevated ozone levels, often jointly present during California summers, affect certain ZIP codes more than others. Those areas across the state most adversely affected tend to be poorer areas.
A study by UC San Diego researchers and colleagues could spur Mexican government officials to explore the untapped potential of dive tourism and leverage it to strengthen marine conservation efforts and help push fisheries towards sustainable paths after decades of overfishing.
Researchers at the University of California San Diego developed a theoretical model that describes how pelicans take advantage of wind updrafts generated by breaking waves to glide in a practice the scientists call wave-slope soaring.
Researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego examining 14 years of hospital admissions data conclude that the fine particles in wildfire smoke can be several times more harmful to human respiratory health than particulate matter from other sources such as car exhaust.
Researchers describe the biology of three families of RNA viruses including Coronavirus, Ebola, and Zika and the natural products that have been shown to have capabilities to inhibit them. The review provides a guide that could accelerate drug discovery in response to future epidemics.
Researchers have always known that waves were an important part of cliff erosion, but they haven’t been able to separate the influence of waves and rain before. After decades of debate over the roles that waves and rain play in cliff erosion, new findings provide opportunity to improve forecasts
Researchers break down the conditions that led to the “Godzilla” dust storm of 2020.
