UC San Diego scientists and colleagues have found links between extreme heat and a heightened incidence of stillbirths and preterm births in relatively poor countries. Their study is believed to be the first to link the two phenomena in a global context.
Researchers from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego will join colleagues from around the country in an effort to discover Antarctica’s oldest ice and through it, learn more about how the earth’s climate has changed throughout its history.
SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV, influenza, measles, and the rhinoviruses that cause the common cold can all spread via aerosols that can build up in indoor air and linger for hours, an international, interdisciplinary team of researchers has reported in a review published in the journal Science.
UC San Diego researchers and colleagues examined the genetics of three ocean skater species across the eastern Pacific Ocean. The results of the study reveal that the skaters became specialized on different current systems, as those currents changed into their modern configurations.
Veerabhadran Ramanathan, a renowned climate and atmospheric scientist at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego, will receive the Blue Planet Prize, the international environmental award sponsored by Japan’s Asahi Glass Foundation.
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.
