UCLA-led research on a white dwarf 86 light-years from Earth sheds light on the systemic chaos that occurs when a star dies.
The rapid downpours, which can affect satellites and space travel, result from whistler waves affecting Earth’s magnetosphere, scientists say.
Eight young UCLA professors are among 118 scientists and scholars selected today to receive the awards.
The research focuses on the factors contributing to a key climate variable called vapor pressure deficit.
Professor emeritus Bruce Runnegar was part of the team that got to the bottom of the situation.
Scientists used machine learning to analyze decades’ worth of weather data from around the world.
Scientists confirm that electrons responsible for the northern lights hitch a ride on electromagnetic waves streaming toward Earth at up to 45 million mph.
The study is the first to combine information about processes both on the surface of the Earth and at the tectonic level.
Fifteen years of radar measurements by a UCLA-led team have provided critical data for understanding many of the planet’s fundamental properties.
The founding director of the Joint Institute for Regional Earth System Science and Engineering died March 20.
The one-two punch impairs corals’ ability to form exoskeletons and grow, UCLA-led research finds.
The association, which is the world’s largest scientific society, honored the UCLA faculty members for their efforts to advance science or its applications.
Clarivate released its annual list of the most highly cited researchers, which includes dozens of UCLA researchers across various disciplines.
Nobel Prize winner Andrea Ghez will deliver the event’s keynote talk, focusing on her research about black holes.
Dust from as far away as Saudi Arabia is carried by winds to the Himalayan snowpack, where it accelerates glacial warming and snowmelt, scientists say.
Scientists are not predicting that a volcanic eruption or earthquake is imminent, but the study revealed uncommon activity for the region.
Previous simulations suggested that astronauts on the surface would be safe during a full moon while it resides within the magnetosphere.
The researchers’ approach could also eventually be used as a way to monitor the activity of volcanoes.
Predictive models have grossly underestimated the amount of climate-changing coarse dust, UCLA scientists say.
Magnetic storms originate closer to Earth than previously thought, threatening satellites.
Q&A with professor Jonathan Stewart about what the team he organized learned in the aftermath of the Ridgecrest earthquakes.
High pressure deep inside the young Earth may have driven vast stores of carbon into the planet’s core while also setting the stage for diamonds to form.
Research on 144 countries reveals the opportunities and pitfalls of this fast-growing sector.
Only a dozen such quakes have been identified in the past two decades, according to Lingsen Meng, UCLA’s Leon and Joanne V.C. Knopoff Professor of Physics and Geophysics.
25 years after Northridge, civil and environmental engineers are using artificial intelligence, machine learning, sensor networks and advances in mapping in their work.
