Study of Ocean Currents Reveals Intensification of Tropical Cyclones Around the World

November 17, 2022

Climate scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego and colleagues used ocean current data gathered over several decades to create a new way to infer cyclone intensity.

Rescued Octopus Provides Rare Chance for Researchers to Understand Life Cycle

November 14, 2022

The chance rescue of a deep-sea octopus from a line trap gave researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego an unprecedented opportunity to witness a key part of the species' life cycle.

Parasites Associated with Eating Fish Showing Up in Southern California Fishing Locales

November 7, 2022
