Visualizing the ground motions of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake

With advances in computational capabilities and refinement of seismic wave-propagation models in the past decade large three-dimensional simulations of earthquake ground motion have become possible. The resulting datasets from these simulations are multivariate, temporal and multi-terabyte in size. Past visual representations of results from seismic studies have been largely confined to static two-dimensional maps. New visual representations provide scientists with alternate ways of viewing...

"The Genetic Response to Snowball Earth: Role of HSP90 in the Cambrian Explosion" Download this paper at the following web address: http://repositories.cdlib.org/postprints/2103 The events that shaped the Cambrian explosion from 545 to 530 Ma, when multicellular animals suddenly appeared in the fossil record, are not fully understood. It is likely that the evolution of new transcription factors and other signal transduction proteins that regulated developmental networks was important...

Saving the Tijuana Estuary

submitted by: ucsandiego

The estuary stands as the last barrier between the Pacific Ocean and pollution. Its mix of plants and silt acts as a filter that purifies inland rain and flood waters before they reach the ocean. The beaches of Imperial Beach are closed about 180 days every year. Without the estuary, they would be closed year round.
