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.
Scientists set out Oct. 27 to explore the biodiversity of deep sea habitats that are rich in minerals like phosphorus and manganese. The public will be able to see what the scientists see in real time when the researchers guide a remotely operated vehicle as it explores the ocean floor.
The Keeling Curve carbon dioxide measurement–the long-term atmospheric measurement that alerted the world to human-induced climate change–has received $1 million in continuation funding from philanthropists Eric and Wendy Schmidt.
Researchers from Scripps Oceanography and colleagues reviewed 25 years of satellite data and computer models to find that ice shelves have experienced a loss of nearly 4,000 gigatons since 1994 as a result of melting from increased heat in the ocean under them.
Scripps Institution of Oceanography climate scientist Veerabhadran Ramanathan has long had the goal of educating and empowering “one million climate warriors” who will help society tackle the world’s greatest existential threat.
Two University of California San Diego scientists co-edit an open-access book in which a unique mix of global religious leaders, scientists, and legislators present climate change as an immediate threat to public health, with COVID-19 serving as an example.
