As climate warms, the snowline, or rain/snow transition elevation, moves to higher elevations, placing some historically snow-dominated sites in the rain zone. Photo by Roger Bales at Crane Flat in Yosemite National Park
A new study co-authored by UC Merced researchers assesses the effect of a warming climate in pushing the elevation of snow to rain higher during a storm, increasing runoff and the risk of flooding. The study also shows the importance of spatially representative ground measurements of hydrologic...
UC Merced engineering students at the SHPE conference in Charlotte, N.C.
  UC Merced students came away from a national engineering conference with some big wins — including a first-place finish in a famous design competition and job offers from some of the...
A new website offers farmers vital growing information.
  When planting crops, farmers confront numerous questions. Among them: Will it get too hot? Is it likely frost will stunt growing? When is the best time to plant? What kind of pests could...
Professor Jeanette Cobian-Iñiguez, front, and her students study heat transfer in fire in her lab.
Fire scientists typically respond to agency opportunities and conduct research in response to past wildfires. But it is time they take more proactive, integrative, predictive approaches toward...
Professor Joshua Viers, coordinator Danny Royer and Professor Tom Harmon describe plans for UC Merced's smart farm.
Land has been tilled at UC Merced’s smart farm, the first physical step in developing the state-of-the-art project. “Even though it’s just a blank field, we have overcome...
Rakesh Goel is the new dean of the UC Merced School of Engineering
Rakesh Goel developed an interest in earthquakes at an early age — and rather abruptly. As a small boy in India, one of his first memories is of experiencing an earthquake....
Professors Joshua Viers, left, and Tom Harmon share oversight of the new smart farm being constructed next to campus. The farm will be UC Merced's AES site.
UCs Merced and Santa Cruz became the newest campuses in the system to be named an agricultural experiment stations (AES), UC President Michael Drake announced at today’s Regents’...
Racers line their solar cars up for a challenge at UC Merced Nov. 5, 2022.
    It wasn’t exactly “Racers, start your engines.” More like, “Racers, remove     your covers.”     But the solar car challenge...
Three UC Merced computer science and engineering students will take on more than 5,000 other teams around the world at the IEEExtreme Hack-a-Thon on Oct. 21-22. The Hack-a-Thon is a 24-hour...
