Department of Music Professor Lei Liang finds a natural connection between earth science, technology and contemporary music as Research Artist in Residence at the UC San Diego Qualcomm Institute
A new study from the University of California San Diego and Stanford quantifies air pollution’s impact on infant mortality in sub-Saharan Africa through a unique approach that paints a clearer picture of the problem than ever before.
The NSF has awarded SDSC a $5 million grant to develop a high-performance resource for conducting artificial intelligence (AI) research across a wide swath of science and engineering domains.
Because of silicon’s relatively high cost, hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites (HOIPs) have emerged as a lower-cost and highly efficient option for solar power, according to a study by Georgia Institute of Technology researchers.
A new study offers perspectives on the ecological and economic impact of sea otters. Comparing regions with and without otters reveals contrasts in kelp forests, fish, urchins, carbon and tourism. The study’s results indicate the economic benefits of having otters present outweigh the costs.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration today announced it selected the University of California San Diego to host the new Cooperative Institute for Marine, Earth, and Atmospheric Systems (CIMEAS). The selection comes with an award of up to $220 million over five years.
UCSanDiego scientists have developed a new biosensor that visualizes stress in living plant cells in real time. The new nanosensor allows unprecedented access to explore mechanisms related to drought.
The National Science Foundation awards two SDSC researchers funding to organize COVID-19 information into a knowledge network that integrates health, pathogen, and environmental data to track cases across greater San Diego.
Two new studies led by scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego highlight the significance of long-term observations for understanding ocean climate trends and events, including record-shattering marine heatwaves.
Researchers from the Colorado School of Mines have been using multiple supercomputers, including SDSC's Comet system, to study certain characteristics of zirconia for wider applications of the super-strong material.
