Latest and Breaking Atmospheric Science News

Seaweed engineers build crustacean homes; old forests store new nitrogen
(Ecological Society of America) In this month's issue of Ecology, invasive seaweed shelters native crustaceans, mature forests store nitrogen in soil, and stream invertebrates aren't eating what we thought they were eating.

NASA's Terra Satellite sees wind shear affecting Tropical Storm Ana
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical Storm Ana was being battered by wind shear when NASA's Terra satellite passed overhead and saw the bulk of showers and thunderstorms pushed north and east of the center.

NASA's TRMM Satellite calculates Hurricanes Fay and Gonzalo rainfall
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA used TRMM and other satellite data to calculate rainfall from Atlantic hurricanes Fay and Gonzalo.

Tropical Depression 9 forms in Gulf of Mexico
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical Depression 9 formed over the western Bay of Campeche, Gulf of Mexico and is forecast to make a quick landfall on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's GOES-East Satellite captured the birth of the depression.

Researchers resolve the Karakoram glacier anomaly, a cold case of climate science
(Princeton University) Researchers from Princeton University and other institutions may have hit upon an answer to a climate-change puzzle that has eluded scientists for years, namely why glaciers in the Karakoram range of the Himalayas have remained stable and even increased in mass while glaciers nearby and worldwide have been receding. Understanding the 'Karakoram anomaly' could help gauge the future availability of water for hundreds of millions of people.

Individual metropolises now global political players
(Uppsala University) By providing the infrastructure that connects global flows and financial systems, major cities have increased their political power alongside the nation-states. In some cases, they are pursuing their own foreign policy in several areas. In her Ph.D. thesis Kristin Ljungkvist, a researcher in housing and urban affairs, has studied the effects of this development and argues that certain risks should be heeded.

An effective, cost-saving way to detect natural gas pipeline leaks
(American Chemical Society) Major leaks from oil and gas pipelines have led to home evacuations, explosions, millions of dollars in lawsuit payouts and valuable natural resources escaping into the air, ground and water. But in a report in ACS' journal Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research, scientists say they have developed a new software-based method that finds leaks even when they're small, which could help prevent serious incidents -- and save money for customers and industry.

Global consumption an increasingly significant driver of tropical deforestation
(Chalmers University of Technology) International trade with agricultural and wood products is an increasingly important driver of tropical deforestation. More than a third of recent deforestation can be tied to production of beef, soy, palm oil and timber. 'The trend is clear, the drivers of deforestation have been globalized and commercialized,' says assistant professor Martin Persson, Chalmers University of Technology.

Recently discovered microbe is key player in climate change
(University of Arizona) Scientists have discovered how an invisible menagerie of microbes in permafrost soils acts as global drivers of Earth processes such as climate via gas exchange between soils and the atmosphere. These findings will help climate modelers more accurately predict Earth's future climate.

NASA sees Himalayan snow from Cyclone Hudhud's remnants
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) When does a Tropical Cyclone drop snowfall? When it makes landfall in India and the moisture moves over the Himalayas as Cyclone Hudhud has done.
