UC San Diego chemistry researchers find that the smallest fresh sea spray particles become 100,000 times more acidic than the ocean within two minutes.
This wasn’t Noah’s flood. But it was still a catastrophic event that profoundly changed the landscape and could have given rise to legends, too. Study identifies oldest known paleo tsunami in the Eastern Mediterranean.
Findings published December 16 in Science Advances provide the climate science community with the groundwork to include Antarctic icebergs in global climate models.
According to findings published Dec. 9 in the journal Science Advances, Earth's plate subduction could have started 3.75 billion years ago, reshaping Earth’s surface and setting the stage for a planet hospitable to life.
The San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego announced that its new Expanse supercomputer formally entered service for researchers following a program review by the National Science Foundation, which awarded SDSC a grant in mid-2019 to build the innovative system.
American Association for the Advancement of Science honors the contributions of UC San Diego leaders in astrophysics, research advocacy, organic chemistry, psychiatry and geophysics.
As California reacts to a record-breaking 2020 fire season, a backcountry observation network has reached a milestone of installing more than 610 cameras across the state, part of the ALERTWildfire camera network.
On Oct. 29, 2020 the National Science Foundation (NSF) approved a $53 million grant to a consortium of the country’s top ocean-research institutions to build a global network of chemical and biological sensors that will monitor ocean health.
A new study by Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego has found that a species of brain-infecting parasite can disrupt the metabolism of its host—the California killifish—both before and after infection.
Supercomputer simulations, done using resources at UC San Diego by researchers at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), show how oil dilutes under specific conditions, which may lead to more effective countermeasures against large oil spills.
