In preparing for the next Mars rover project, a UC Davis geologist is developing ways to probe rock structures on the planet. Martian rocks could offer clues whether the planet environment, before or now, could support life.
UC Riverside research has identified odor molecules that hamper mosquitoes from sniffing out people. It may pave the way for new repellants and prevent deadly diseases spread by the insects.
With the help of wireless sensors, UC researchers observe the cycle of water deep in the soil. Their studies will track how our water and forests respond to climate change.
And UC Davis researchers are working to restore their West Coast population, which has declined because of over-harvesting and pollution.
New software enables students and researchers to visualize, map and model seismic data from subsurface sedimentary deposits.
Scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are working with a Norwegian company, named SWAY, to leverage offshore wind as a possible and valuable energy source.
Scientists at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego deploy new technology that records the kaleidoscope of songs and sounds from marine animals in the Arctic. It will help understand the effect of global warming on animals in that region.
A UC ranch looks at irrigation, plant nutrition and soil health issues, as it reinvents agriculture and readies farms to feed a growing population.
