Twitter Web App : The insects’ success lies in their small body size and a waxy cocktail they use to groom their hairs. The tiniest hairs are shaped like golf clubs & are packed tightly to prevent water from entering between them, said Scripps’ Lanna Cheng, an expert on sea skaters, or Halobates.

Twitter Web App : In a new KAUST study, researchers used high-resolution and ultrafast imaging to gain a first look at the insect’s physical features, including the hairs and waxy coating that cover its body, and its movement to evade the sea’s dangers.…

Twitter Web App : They say this underscores the ongoing importance of regular widespread testing, wearing masks and physical distancing to reduce the spread of the virus. The full perspective can be read here:…

Twitter Web App : In a companion study, scientists present a new method for minimizing historical biases, adjusting the 100+ year time series for time-of-day samples were collected. This method was used in heatwave study & has major implications for future research. More:…

Twitter Web App : Researchers looked at more than a century of ocean temp data collected by ShoreStation100 @ Scripps Pier, as well as data obtained by satellites & gliders. They found that the frequency & duration of marine heatwaves have become more pronounced in recent years due to climate change.

Twitter Web App : A new study by Scripps scientists identifies #ClimateChange as a major contributor to a record-breaking marine #heatwave. The 2018 heat event occurred in waters off Southern California, peaking at 79.5°F, the highest sea-surface temp recorded in La Jolla.…
