Climate model simmulations on the GRID

The Beach of the Future

Building upon a legacy of coastal science at Scripps, high-tech tools are opening new avenues for researchers to track sand movements and further explain beach systems.

Welcome to the New Normal

Scripps Oceanography research suggests that climate change will require a complete rethinking of water delivery systems in the West. That'll be step one.

Ice Drillers are Hard Core

submitted by: ppza
Deciphering the secrets of past climate hidden in ice cores depends on the technical skills and ingenuity under pressure of drillers from ICDS, the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Ice Coring and Drilling Services. In this video, ICDS staffers Lou, Mike and Jay explain why they enjoy the life of drillers, braving extreme cold in some of the remotest regions of the globe. Mike says drilling requires both science and art, and why he keeps his hand on the cable even when it's minus 20; Lou...

Harmonic Cloud Patterns on Jupiter

submitted by: RayTomes

Regularly spaced clouds appear in Jupiter's belts, sometimes white spots and sometimes swirling waves. A polar projection of Jupiter, made by NASA from the 2000 flyby, allows accurate testing of the hypothesis that these waves form as predicted by the Harmonics Theory. It is found that expected strong harmonics 12, 24 and 72 are present.
