GPM sees wind shear affecting remnants of Extra-tropical Cyclone Joalane
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The GPM satellite showed the effects of wind shear and waning rainfall rates in Extra-tropical Cyclone Joalane as it was moving in a southeasterly direction through the Southern Indian Ocean.

New Tool to Connect Geoscience Information to Decision Makers
(American Geosciences Institute) The Critical Issues Research Database seeks to connect end-users to the wealth of information available on issues at the intersection of geoscience and society such as the occurrence of natural resources, hazard mitigation and pollution risks.

Climate connections
(University of South Carolina) Global climate has undergone periods of stability, but also instability, with abrupt, rapid and substantial climate changes occurring as a consequence of natural processes scientists still don't understand. University of South Carolina paleoceanographer Kelly Gibson contributed to the field in a recent paper, which demonstrates the influence of rapid climate change on marine ecosystems near Venezuela tens of thousands of years ago and shows how changes there were accompanied by simultaneous changes globally.

Seeing the unseen: PET/CT scans reveal worms' hidden life
(University of Southern Denmark) What are lugworms and other small animals doing in the seabed? Until now scientists have not been able to study these animals without disturbing them, but thanks to modern PET/CT scans, now we can study their hidden life.

NASA catches Tropical Cyclone Solo dissipating
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical Cyclone Solo was dissipating over the Southwestern Pacific Ocean when NASA's Aqua satellite passed overhead on April 13, 2015.

Coexisting in a sea of competition
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) Diversity of life abounds on Earth, and there's no need to look any farther than the ocean's surface for proof. There are over 200,000 species of phytoplankton alone, and all of those species of microscopic marine plants that form the base of the marine food web need the same basic resources to grow -- light and nutrients.

Fragment of continental crust found under south east Iceland
(University of Liverpool) An international team, including researchers at the University of Liverpool, have shown that south east Iceland is underlain by continental crust.

Smithsonian's Panama debate fueled by zircon dating
(Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute) New evidence published in Science by Smithsonian geologists dates the closure of an ancient seaway at 13 to 15 million years ago and challenges accepted theories about the rise of the Isthmus of Panama and its impact on world climate and animal migrations.

NASA sees Tropical Cyclone Joalane's winds consolidate around its eye
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The RapidScat instrument that flies aboard the International Space Station provided data about Tropical Cyclone Joalane's surface winds that showed how the strongest sustained winds consolidated as the tropical cyclone intensified and developed an eye. As of April 9, warnings were in effect at Rodrigues Island in the Southern Indian Ocean as Joalane approached.

'Warm blob' in Pacific Ocean linked to weird weather across the US
(University of Washington) An unusually warm patch of surface water, nicknamed 'the blob' when it emerged in early 2014, is part of a Pacific Ocean pattern that may be affecting everything from West Coast fisheries and water supplies to East Coast snowstorms.
