The magnitude 6 earthquake that shook the Napa Valley in August was the strongest the region had felt in more than 20 years.
But the next earthquake in the area could be much stronger, according to preliminary research from UC Davis presented at the American Geophysical Union conference in San Francisco.
New technologies and social media enabled the UC Davis team to produce scientific information for the public at unprecedented speeds following the quake.
The team of geologists and graduate students from the UC Davis Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences found that the West Napa Fault line is longer than previously thought, and capable of a much stronger, more destructive earthquake in the future.
In fact, they say the Napa fault could produce a temblor strong enough to cause levee failures in the Delta.
The year 2020 is a mere five years away but will be a turning point defining a new era of nutrition for both consumers and scientists, say nutritionists who met this year at the University of California, Davis. The heart of nutrition will still be about healthful, vitamin-rich foods in moderate…
Three UC Davis scientists have been elected as 2014 fellows of the National Academy of Inventors, for work ranging from engineering new tissues to mass-producing superior surgical blades. They are: Kyriacos A. Athanasiou, distinguished professor and chair of biomedical engineering; Bruce…
Researchers at the University of California, Davis, working with colleagues at the other UC campuses, have developed an ambitious plan to use the UC Natural Reserve System to detect and forecast the ecological impacts of climate change in California. The team’s proposal to establish a UC-wide…
Nobel laureate scientists have made amazing breakthroughs, but most were taken aback when photographer Volker Steger gave each of them a large sheet of paper, a handful of crayons and told them, “Draw your discovery!” Once they put down the crayons, he took a photo of each holding the drawing…
The University of California, Davis, this fall enrolled a record number of students and one of its strongest undergraduate entering classes — including gains in academic quality, historically underrepresented minorities, global diversity and other measures. The university, which ranks ninth…
