Microparticles recovered from some seabirds exhibited estrogenic activity with potential to disrupt hormone functions
An ambitious interdisciplinary initiative aims to advance understanding of the processes that trigger earthquakes, tsunamis, landslides, and volcanic eruptions where tectonic plates converge
A new dataset of intentional disabling of Automatic Identification System devices by fishing vessels provides insights into illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing activity
A grant from the Office of Naval Research funds research using elephant seals to find marine hotspots while providing support for undergraduate researchers, an assessment of ethical considerations, and training to create inclusive environments for field research
The effects of global climate cycles on Southern Ocean temperatures drove cycles of melting and freezing in the East Antarctic Ice Sheet every few thousand years, according to a new study.
Instruments carried by migrating elephant seals measured deep warm-water anomalies that lasted much longer than the surface warming.
UCSC scientists are part of a DARPA-funded team to develop innovative solutions for coral reef restoration in Florida and the Caribbean to protect coastal infrastructure.
A robust analysis demonstrates that nature-based solutions to reduce the damage caused by coastal flooding are cost-effective.
The forecasts could help fishing fleets, ocean managers, and coastal communities anticipate the effects of marine heatwaves.
The problem, experts say, is that the mosquitofish don’t discriminate between snacking on the rice-sized offspring of disease-ridden mosquitoes and critically endangered marine life
A UCSC team obtained an x-ray ‘snapshot’ of a novel protein structure with potential applications in biomedicine and materials science
Healthy coastal wetlands can help combat climate change by absorbing large amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and storing it for the long term. A large interdisciplinary team is now working to help the wetlands maximize their impact.
