Researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego and the University of California Berkeley have discovered a new method of communication in the Atlantic ghost crab, Ocypode quadrata.
The NSF has awarded SDSC and its partners a three-year, $5.9 million grant to host the EarthCube Office as part of the ongoing NSF-funded EarthCube program.
The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at UC San Diego has been awarded a five-year grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) worth $10 million to deploy Expanse, a new supercomputer designed to advance research that is increasingly dependent upon heterogeneous and distributed resources.
New partnership joins university's data science hub with leading communications firm collaborating on establishing educational and research connections as well as increased opportunities for students
Scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego and the University of Sydney, Australia have identified a previously unknown species of damselfish from Madagascar.
The University of California San Diego ranked 4th among public research universities in the United States in this year’s annual ranking of high-quality scientific research papers by the journal Nature.
A newly-published study in Scientific Reports shows that plastic debris less than 5 millimeters across, known as microplastic, is common from the surface to the seafloor. It may also be entering marine food webs, both at the surface and in the deep.
Researchers discovered what makes the teeth of deep-sea dragonfish transparent. This adaptation, which camouflages dragonfish from prey, results from the teeth having an unusually crystalline nanostructure mixed with amorphous regions. The findings could provide bioinspiration for transparent cerami
In a study published today in Nature Geoscience a team of scientists, including glaciologists from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego, detail how they discovered an ancient geologic structure under Antarctica’s largest ice shelf and describe how the ice she
Scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego have found that low oxygen levels in seawater could blind some marine invertebrates.
