September 30, 2016

…for the lecture, “The Role of Ocean Turbulence in Climate.”

New Research Uncovers Pattern in Global Flu Outbreaks

November 3, 2016

In a new study, a Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego-led research team found that a key environmental driver – humidity – links flu outbreaks across the globe and that temperature mediates this effect.

Natural Methane “Time Bomb” Unlikely to Wreak Climate Havoc

August 23, 2017

An analysis of air bubbles from glacial ice cores shows that the last time the planet experienced rapid warming, there was not a giant release to the atmosphere of the greenhouse gas methane from frozen methane deposits, a scenario some have feared could be repeated in the near future as…

California’s Climate Future Suggests More Volatility and a Key Role for Atmospheric Rivers

September 12, 2017

Two recently published studies investigating past and future precipitation in California demonstrate that the state is experiencing an increasingly volatile precipitation regime, as rain-heavy winter storms known as “atmospheric rivers” become increasingly intense, and dry periods between storms grow longer.

Variable Precipitation Linked to Rising Infectious Disease among Young Children Worldwide

February 9, 2022

A team of researchers at the University of California San Diego has found that abnormally wet conditions increase the risk of cough, fever, and diarrhea in children under five years old in many humid subtropical regions of the globe.

Disappearance of Coral Reefs, Drastically Altered Marine Food Web on the Horizon

August 5, 2013

If history’s closest analog is any indication, the look of the oceans will change drastically in the future as the coming greenhouse world alters marine food webs and gives certain species advantages over others.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with former U.S. Vice President Al Gore. Thousands of scientists and policymakers around…

New Model Connects Respiratory Droplet Physics with Spread of Covid-19

July 20, 2020

Engineers have incorporated a new understanding of the impact of environmental factors on droplet spread into a mathematical model that can be used to predict the early spread of respiratory viruses including COVID-19, and the role of respiratory droplets in that spread.

Search for the World’s Oldest Ice to be Initiated

September 10, 2021

Researchers from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego will join colleagues from around the country in an effort to discover Antarctica’s oldest ice and through it, learn more about how the earth’s climate has changed throughout its history.

These Energy-Packed Batteries Work Well in Extreme Cold and Heat

July 4, 2022

Researchers developed lithium-ion batteries that perform well at freezing cold and scorching hot temperatures, while packing a lot of energy. This could help electric cars travel farther on a single charge in the cold and reduce the need for cooling systems for the cars’ batteries in hot climates.
