Increase in acidity may not be harmful to coral reefs after all

A combined team of researchers affiliated with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences has found, via a five year study, that increased ocean acidification may not pose the threat to coral reefs that scientists have thought. In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the […]

Study reveals ocean acidification’s effects on shrimp biology

A new study by Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego researchers reveals that more carbon dioxide in seawater could lead to more calcium in shrimp exoskeletons and a decrease in their transparency. The study appears in the June 1 issue of Scientific Reports, an open access journal published by Nature. Researchers collected red […]

A wave is more than its equation

When I first started at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography a year ago, I was a complete novice when it came to ocean-related activities.   California thrives on these things and I stuck out as a rather puzzled (and pale) … Continue reading ?

New Study: ‘Irreversible’ Arctic Ice Loss Seems To Be Reversing Itself

The science is settle when it comes to climate change.  Except of course for all the reports that contradict that. But new research from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography says

BOMBSHELL: Scripps says Arctic Sea Ice may return, forecasts based on ‘simplified arguments’

From Scripps Institution of Oceanography Research Highlight: Arctic Sea Ice Loss Likely To Be Reversible New research by Till Wagner and Ian Eisenman, scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego, resolves a long-running debate over irreversible Arctic sea ice loss. Ever since the striking record minimum Arctic sea ice extent in 2007, the…

Why you Should See the Great Pacific Garbage Patch

By Jennifer Brandon Scripps Institution of Oceanography UC San Diego We were in the middle of the North Pacific with no land in sight, hunting for garbage. One of the crew spotted a bigger object that we harpooned to bring on board. It was a floating tire, and by the amount of algae and rust on it, it had been out here a long time. Show More Summary

Ruby Seadragon species discovered by Scripps researchers

A 3-D scan of the newly discovered Ruby Seadragon. While researching the two known species of seadragons as part of an effort to understand and protect the exotic and delicate fish, scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego made a startling discovery: A third species of seadragon. read more

Two Weeks Into 2015 And CO2 Levels Are Already Scary

10 months agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

Measurements made by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography reveal that average CO 2 levels in the first few days of 2015 are already above 400 parts per million. Experts say this could lead to a series of consecutive months above this worrying threshold. Read more...

New Map Shows Sea Floor In Greater Detail Than Ever Before

(Image: David Sandwell, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego) You know what is utterly terrifying in scope and takes up most of the Earth's surface? The ocean. If Pacific Rim taught us anything, it is that there are PROBABLY aliens living in there, just waiting for the perfect time to hatch and surface. Show More Summary

The Big Picture: Satellite imagery details ocean depths with new maps

Harnessing data from two satellites, scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego have built a new map of the deepest parts of the ocean. Combining info from the European Space Agency's (ESA) CryoSat-2 and NASA's Jason-1 with...

New map exposes previously unseen details of seafloor

Accessing two previously untapped streams of satellite data, scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego and their colleagues have created a new map of the world's seafloor, creating a much more vivid picture of the structures that make up the deepest, least-explored parts of the ocean.

Scientists Solve Mystery of Death Valley's Moving Rocks

Scientists at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego, have solved the mystery-phenomenon of Death Valley's moving rocks, which have for years moved across the desert on their own. TheoriesShow More Summary

Scientists Believe They Have Uncovered the Mystery of Self-Moving Death Valley ‘Sailing Stones’

A team of researchers at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego believe they have uncovered the phenomenon behind the self-propelled “sailing stones” of Death Valley, which appear to move by themselves, leaving behind a trail in the dry river bed. In 2011, the team set up “the most boring experiment ever” to […]

Severe drought is causing the western US to rise

The severe drought gripping the western United States in recent years is changing the landscape well beyond localized effects of water restrictions and browning lawns. Scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego have used GPS data to discover that the growing, broad-scale loss of water is causing the entire western US to rise up like an uncoiled spring.

Extreme Drought is Making the West Coast Rise Like an Uncoiled Spring

A new study published in Science by the Scripp's Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego found that the earth's crust is slowly rising in the West "like an uncoiled spring" due extreme drought. Scripps researchers found that the water shortage is causing

NRL reveals new meteorological insight into mid-level clouds

WASHINGTON -- Research meteorologists at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) Marine Meteorology Division (MMD) and Scripps Institution of Oceanography, employing the Navy's Mid-Course Doppler Radar (MCR) at Cape Canaveral, were able to characterize mid-level, mixed-phase altocumulus clouds. read more

Scientists discover evidence of super-fast deep earthquake

Scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego have discovered the first evidence that deep earthquakes, those breaking at more than 400 kilometers (250 miles) below Earth's surface, can rupture much faster than ordinary earthquakes. Show More Summary
