Fanged friends: World's most vilified and dangerous animals may be humankind's best ally

Thu, 18 Jan 18 00:06:30 -0800

An international review led by the University of Queensland and WCS (Wildlife Conservation Society) says that many native carnivores that live in and around human habitation are declining at an unprecedented rate - spelling bad news for humans who indirectly rely on them for a variety of beneficial services.

NASA calculated heavy rainfall leading to California mudslides

Thu, 11 Jan 18 00:01:40 -0800

Winter rains falling on recently burned ground triggered deadly mudslides in Santa Barbara County, California on Jan. 9. NASA calculated the amount of rain fall between Jan. 8 and 10, 2018 and calculated the potential for landslides.

NASA's IMERG measures Tropical Cyclone Ava's disastrous rainfall

Wed, 10 Jan 18 00:12:00 -0800

Tropical cyclone Ava dropped extremely heavy rainfall over Madagascar as it passed over the eastern side of the island country on Jan. 5 and 6, 2018. NASA calculated how much rainfall occurred using satellite data.

ASU astronomers to build space telescope to explore nearby stars

Wed, 10 Jan 18 00:16:20 -0800

A new ASU-led mission will launch a small satellite telescope into space to study the environment in other solar systems around the Galaxy's most common type of star.

Powerful tropical cyclone irving examined with GPM

Mon, 08 Jan 18 00:10:20 -0800

On Jan. 8, Tropical Cyclone Irving was hurricane-force in the Southern Indian Ocean. The Global Precipitation Measurement Mission or GPM core satellite passed overhead and measured cloud heights and rainfall rates in the powerful storm.

Discovery of a 4,000-year-old military network in northern Syria

Thu, 21 Dec 17 00:00:50 -0800

The discovery of more than a thousand sites in Syria has revised our understanding of the settlement of the steppes during all periods in the history of the Near East. Recently, analysis of aerial and satellite images has enabled the discovery of a vast structured surveillance and communication network dating from the Middle Bronze Age (2nd millennium BCE).

NASA calculated Philippines rainfall from Tropical Storm Kai-Tak

Tue, 19 Dec 17 00:04:20 -0800

Tropical Storm Kai-Tak moved through the central and southern Philippines over several days and weakened to a remnant low pressure area in the South China Sea. As it moved over the country, NASA found that the storm generated heavy amounts of rainfall.

NASA looks at rainfall in developing Tropical Storm Kai-tak

Thu, 14 Dec 17 00:03:00 -0800

Tropical Storm Kai-tak developed near the east central Philippines as the Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM core satellite passed overhead and analyzed its rainfall.

A better way to weigh millions of solitary stars

Thu, 14 Dec 17 00:07:40 -0800

Astronomers have come up with a new and improved method for measuring the masses of millions of solitary stars, especially those with planetary systems.

Giant storms cause palpitations in Saturn's atmospheric heartbeat

Wed, 13 Dec 17 00:14:30 -0800

A University of Leicester scientist leads a Cassini mission study into immense northern storms on Saturn.

Mars mission sheds light on habitability of distant planets

Wed, 13 Dec 17 00:15:10 -0800

Insights from NASA's Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution, or MAVEN, mission about the loss of the Red Planet's atmosphere can help scientists understand the habitability of rocky planets orbiting other stars.

New maps show shrinking wilderness being ignored at our peril

Tue, 12 Dec 17 00:11:20 -0800

Maps of the world's most important wilderness areas are now freely available online following a University of Queensland and Wildlife Conservation Society-led study published today.

NASA's CATS concludes successful mission on space station

Wed, 06 Dec 17 00:05:10 -0800

A spaceborne lidar instrument that fired more laser pulses than any previous orbiting instrument has ended its operations on the International Space Station, after a successful 33-month mission to measure clouds and tiny atmospheric particles that play key roles in Earth's climate and weather.

NASA sees sees Ockhi's Rain reach India's Western coast

Wed, 06 Dec 17 00:04:50 -0800

NASA's Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM Core Observatory satellite passed over western India on Dec. 5, 2017 at (12:21 a.m. EST) 0521 UTC and found that the remnants of former Tropical Cyclone Ockhi has reached the coast.

NASA's GPM Satellite observes Tropical Cyclone Dahlia and landslide potential

Fri, 01 Dec 17 00:06:00 -0800

On Nov. 29 Tropical Cyclone Dahlia became the first tropical cyclone of the 2017-2018 Southwest Indian Ocean season. The Global Precipitation Measurement Mission or GPM core satellite provided forecasters with a look inside the clouds and into the rate rain was falling. Heavy rainfall has created the potential for landslides and NASA analyzed areas that may be subject.

Study shows lower lung cancer rates in communities with strong smoke-free laws

Wed, 29 Nov 17 00:08:10 -0800

Researchers at the University of Kentucky studied the correlation between communities with strong smoke-free workplace laws and the number of new lung cancer diagnoses. Those communities have 8% fewer new cases than communities with weak or no workplace laws.

All missions on board for NASA heliophysics research

Mon, 27 Nov 17 00:11:30 -0800

Scientists have been studying the near-Earth environment for the better part of a century, but many mysteries -- like where the energetic particles that pervade the area originate and become energized -- still remain. In a new type of collaborative study, scientists combined data from 16 separate NASA and Los Alamos National Laboratory spacecraft to understand how a particle phenomenon in the magnetic environment around Earth occurs. These events, called substorms, can cause auroras, disrupt GPS communications and, at their most intense, damage power grids.

NASA measures Haikui's remnant rainfall over southern Vietnam

Wed, 15 Nov 17 00:06:50 -0800

The Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM core satellite provided data on rainfall over Vietnam from the remnants of former Tropical Storm Haikui.
