Scripps Scientists Use Photomosaic Technology to Find Order in the Chaos of Coral Reefs

In a study published recently in Coral Reefs, scientists from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego created and analyzed detailed photomosaics of the coral reef at Palmyra Atoll, and made surprising discoveries around coral spatial ecology. The scientists, led by graduate student Clinton Edwards, canvassed more than 17,000 square feet of reef, and 44,008 coral colonies, taking more than 39,000 images that were then stitched together to create 3D photomosaics that encompassed the reef.   Full Story

UCSD PI Work Featured in Autonomy brief to the Secretary of the Air Force

Research work of Yuri Bazilevs and Hyonny Kim, Professors in Structural Engineering at UCSD, Marco Pigazzini, PhD Candidate in Structural Engineering, and Artem Korobenko, Professor at the University of Calgary (formerly PhD Student and Postdoc in Structural Engineering) on the Multiscale Dynamic Data Driven Application Systems (DDDAS) framework for Damage Prediction in Aerospace Composite Structures was presented as part of Autonomy brief to the Secretary of the Air Force Dr. Heather Wilson. The project was selected among the best from the DDDAS portfolio funded by the US Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), Dr. Erik Blasch, Program Officer. Congratulations to the UCSD DDDAS team for this high-profile recognition of their research as being of great relevance to National Defense. Full Story

Drone Truthing

A team of researchers from across UC San Diego is developing a new approach for detecting damage to buildings during earthquakes and other extreme events. They came together at the Geisel Library recently to use lasers and drones to create a digital record of the structure that will serve as a baseline health assessment. In the event that a sizeable earthquake hits nearby, the team will reconvene to retake the digital measurements and assess any damage to the building such as tilting or cracks.
