NASA sees Tropical Storm Hernan near Mexico's Baja California
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical Storm Hernan developed over this past weekend and reached hurricane strength before vertical wind shear kicked in and kicked the storm down. NASA's Terra satellite passed over Hernan when it was developing as a tropical depression near Baja California, Mexico.

Satellite sees Genevieve's remnants chased by 2 more systems
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical Storm Genevieve may be a remnant low pressure area but there's still a chance it could make a comeback. Meanwhile, GOES-West satellite imagery showed there are two developing low pressure areas 'chasing' Genevieve to the east. NOAA's Central Pacific Hurricane Center has suddenly become very busy tracking these three areas.

Tropical Storm Genevieve forms in Eastern Pacific
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The seventh tropical depression of the Eastern Pacific Ocean formed and quickly ramped up to a tropical storm named 'Genevieve.' The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's GOES-West satellite captured an infrared image of the newborn storm being trailed by two other areas of developing low pressure to its east.

NASA maps Typhoon Matmo's Taiwan deluge
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) When Typhoon Matmo crossed over the island nation of Taiwan it left tremendous amounts of rainfall in its wake. NASA used data from the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission satellite to calculate just how much rain fell over the nation.

Noise pollution impacts fish species differently
(University of Bristol) Acoustic disturbance has different effects on different species of fish, according to a new study from the universities of Bristol and Exeter which tested fish anti-predator behavior.

Synchronization of North Atlantic, North Pacific preceded abrupt warming, end of ice age
(Oregon State University) Scientists have long been concerned that global warming may push Earth's climate system across a 'tipping point,' where rapid melting of ice and further warming may become irreversible -- a hotly debated scenario with an unclear picture of what this point of no return may look like. A new study suggests that combined warming of the North Atlantic and Pacific Oceans thousands of years ago may have provided the tipping point for abrupt warming and rapid melting of the northern ice sheets.

NASA sees Typhoon Matmo making second landfall in China
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Terra satellite passed over Typhoon Matmo when it was moving through the Taiwan Strait for its final landfall in mainland China.

Satellite shows Atlantic tropical depression degenerate
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NOAA's GOES-East satellite captured imagery of the Atlantic Ocean's Tropical Depression 2 is it degenerated into a tropical wave on July 23.

15-year analysis of blue whale range off California finds conflict with shipping lanes
(Oregon State University) A comprehensive analysis of the movements of blue whales off the West Coast found that their favored feeding areas are bisected by heavily used shipping lanes, increasing the threat of injury and mortality. But moving the shipping lanes off Los Angeles and San Francisco to slightly different areas -- at least, during summer and fall when blue whales are most abundant -- could significantly decrease the probability of ships striking the whales.

Blue whales' dangerous feeding grounds
(PLOS) Tracking of blue whales by satellite over a 15-year period off the US West Coast suggests that the whales consistently return to feed in specific locations each year.
