(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Before Hurricane Gert became a post-tropical cyclone, NASA got a look at the rainfall occurring within the storm. After Gert became post-tropical NOAA's GOES-East satellite captured an image as Gert was merging with another system.



New gene catalog of ocean microbiome reveals surprises

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 00:00:00 EDT

(University of Hawaii at Manoa) In a recent report published in Nature Microbiology, University of Hawai'i at Mānoa (UHM) oceanography professor Ed DeLong and his team report the largest single-site microbiome gene catalog constructed to date. With this new information, the team discovered nutrient limitation is a central driver in the evolution of ocean microbe genomes.



Ocean exploration uncovers one of Cuba's hidden natural treasures

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 00:00:00 EDT

(Florida Atlantic University) After nearly two years of planning, a team of scientists from the US and Cuba has explored never-before-studied mesophotic coral reefs during a month-long circumnavigation of the entire coast of Cuba, spanning about 1,500 miles. Except for a few places along the coast, prior to this expedition, there were virtually no data or charts indicating what was beyond the shallow reef zone.



Larvaceans provide a pathway for transporting microplastics into deep-sea food webs

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 00:00:00 EDT

(Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute) A new paper by MBARI researchers shows that filter-feeding animals called giant larvaceans can collect and consume microplastic particles, potentially carrying microplastics to the deep seafloor.



Modern genetic sequencing tools give clearer picture of how corals are related

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 00:00:00 EDT

(University of Washington) As corals face threats from ocean warming, a new study uses the latest genetic-sequencing tools to help unravel the relationships between three similar-looking corals.



This week from AGU: New study details ocean's role in fourth-largest extinction

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 00:00:00 EDT

(American Geophysical Union) Extremely low oxygen levels in Earth's oceans could be responsible for extending the effects of a mass extinction that wiped out millions of species on Earth around 200 million years ago, according to a new study published in Geochemistry, Geophysics, Geosystems.



NASA spots Typhoon Banyan's large eye

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 00:00:00 EDT

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Typhoon Banyan's eye became visible again in satellite imagery from NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite. A visible image showed powerful storms tightly would around Typhoon Banyan's center as it moved through the Pacific Ocean.



NASA's GPM found Gert strengthening into a hurricane

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 00:00:00 EDT

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA looked at the rainfall rates within Tropical Storm Gert as it continued to strengthen and found the most intense rainfall on the tropical cyclone's eastern side. Just over 12 hours later, Gert would strengthen into a hurricane. As Gert has strengthened, the storm began generating dangerous surf along the US East coast.



NASA sees a tightly wound Typhoon Banyan

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 00:00:00 EDT

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Satellite imagery from NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite showed powerful storms tightly would around Typhoon Banyan's center as it moved through the Pacific Ocean.



NASA sees strengthening Tropical Storm Gert west of Bermuda

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 00:00:00 EDT

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical Depression Eight (TD8) formed around 11 p.m. EDT on Saturday, August 12 about 260 miles northeast of the southeastern Bahamas. By 5 p.m. the depression strengthened into a tropical storm and was named Gert.



NASA sees Tropical Storm Jova being ripped apart

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 00:00:00 EDT

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Satellite imagery from NOAA's GOES-West satellite showed vertical wind shear was already tearing Tropical Storm Jova apart just two days after it formed. By Aug. 14, the storm weakened into a post-tropical cyclone.

UF scientists discover cause of Atlantic coastline's sea level rise hot spots

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 00:00:00 EDT

(University of Florida) A new study, published online today, shows that seas rose in the southeastern US between 2011 and 2015 by more than six times the global average sea level rise that is already happening due to human-induced global warming. The combined effects of El Niño (ENSO) and the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO), both of which are naturally occurring climate processes, drove this recent sea level rise hot spot, according to the study.
