A new study published late last year in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society used supercomputer simulations to explore molecular gas within and surrounding the intracluster medium, or the space between galaxies in a galaxy cluster.
An international team of scientists has synthetically engineered mosquitoes that halt the transmission of the dengue virus. The development marks the first engineered approach in mosquitoes that targets the four known types of dengue, improving upon previous designs that addressed single strains.
New research from the University of California San Diego finds that solar geoengineering—the intentional reflection of sunlight away from the Earth’s surface—may reduce income inequality between countries.
Scientists at the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) used SDSC’s Comet supercomputer to help model the formation of terrestrial planets such as Mercury, Venus, and Mars in a quest to explore if there are Earth-like planets outside our solar system.
The decommissioning of coal-fired power plants in the continental United States has reduced nearby pollution and its negative impacts on human health and crop yields, according to a new University of California San Diego study.
The amount of carbon in the Earth’s terrestrial ecosystems is likely to decline by about 10 percent through the year 2100, according to USGS researchers who used SDSC's 'Comet' supercomputer to conduct simulations.
Atmospheric rivers pose a $1 billion-a-year flood risk in the West, according to a study released today.
UC San Diego professor and world-renowned composer Lei Liang wins the 2020 Grawemeyer Award for Music Composition for his orchestral work that both evokes the realities of climate change and offers the enduring potential for healing.
SDSC and the Wisconsin IceCube Particle Astrophysics Center (WIPAC) successfully completed a computational experiment as part of a multi-institution collaboration that marshalled all globally available for sale GPUs (graphics processing units) across Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, and Google.
The University of California San Diego has been named the nation’s sixth best public university, according to U.S. News and World Report’s Best Global Universities.
