Carbon dioxide measured at NOAA’s Mauna Loa Observatory peaked in May 2022 at an average of more than 420 parts per million, pushing the atmosphere further into territory not seen for millions of years, scientists from NOAA and Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego said.
Scientists used tools of genetics research akin to those used in genealogical research to evaluate the diversity of marine life off the California coast
A study led by researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego provides new insight on the origins and early evolution of echinoids, a group of marine animals that includes modern sea urchins, sand dollars, and their relatives.
Researchers from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego and colleagues say in a new study that they have identified the fingerprint of climate change in the events that triggered damage to a Northern California dam in 2017 that led to the evacuation of 188,000 people.
Adrianus J. Kalmijn, a biologist and physicist at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego who pioneered the study of electromagnetics in shark sensory functions, died Dec. 7, 2021, at the age of 88.
A new miniature ocean is being constructed on UC San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography campus, housed under the distinctive wave-shaped roof of its iconic Hydraulics Laboratory.
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.
