A new study published today in the journal Geophysical Research Letters used NASA’s ice-measuring laser satellite to identify atmospheric river storms as a key driver of increased snowfall in West Antarctica during the 2019 austral winter.
In a new study, Scripps Institution of Oceanography climate scientists Amato Evan and Ian Eisenman identify regional variations in snowpack melt as temperatures increase, and they present a theory that explains which mountain snowpacks worldwide are most “at-risk” from climate change.
Four faculty members from UC San Diego have been awarded 2021 Sloan Research Fellowships, awards designed to support “extraordinary” early career researchers.
Researchers have produced a groundbreaking new reference genome for the Asian malaria vector mosquito Anopheles stephensi. The achievement will help scientists engineer advanced forms of defense against malaria transmission, including targeted CRISPR and gene drive-based strategies.
UC San Diego researchers report that climate change is a chronic mental health stressor, and promotes a variety of mental health problems. The 2018 Camp Fire is a case study.
Researchers from MIT have succeeded in developing an artificial intelligence (AI) approach to detect electron correlation – the interaction between a system’s electrons – which is vital but expensive to calculate in quantum chemistry.
Modern forecasting methods fueled by advances in understanding and predicting atmospheric river storms have enabled U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) operators to better optimize water resources at Lake Mendocino, a Northern California reservoir.
Engineers at UC San Diego are on the front lines of global efforts to reduce the energy used by data centers. Through an ARPA-E grant, the team is working to double data center energy efficiency in the next decade through deployment of new photonic— light based —network topologies.
Utility San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) and Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to conduct research on the effects of climate hazards to the San Diego region.
The County Board of Supervisors has unanimously voted to direct County staff to work in partnership with the UC San Diego School of Global Policy and Strategy (GPS) on a regional zero-carbon sustainability plan.
