“Denoising” a Noisy Ocean

March 15, 2023

UC San Diego scientists and colleagues have developed a way for computers to sift through sounds collected by field acoustic recording packages and process them faster than even the most trained human analysts. The method represents a major advance in the field of signal processing.

Coastal Water Pollution Transfers to the Air in Sea Spray Aerosol and Reaches People on Land

March 2, 2023

New research led by Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego has confirmed that coastal water pollution transfers to the atmosphere in sea spray aerosol, which can reach people beyond just beachgoers, surfers, and swimmers.

Scientists and Surf Organizations Confirm What Surfers Already Know
