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.

NASA provides double vision on Typhoon Matmo
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Two instruments aboard NASA's Aqua satellite provided different views of Typhoon Matmo on its approach to Taiwan today, July 22.

NASA's TRMM satellite measures up Super Typhoon Rammasun
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's TRMM satellite measured up Super Typhoon Rammasun's rainfall rates, rainfall totals and cloud heights providing a look at the inner workings and aftermath of the storm.

NASA's Aqua satellite gets infrared hint on Tropical Depression 2
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Infrared data gathered on the tropical low pressure area known as System 92L gave forecasters a hint that the low would become the Atlantic Ocean hurricane season's second tropical depression.

Has Antarctic sea ice expansion been overestimated?
(European Geosciences Union) New research suggests that Antarctic sea ice may not be expanding as fast as previously thought. A team of scientists say much of the increase measured for Southern Hemisphere sea ice could be due to a processing error in the satellite data. The findings are published today in The Cryosphere, a journal of the European Geosciences Union.

NASA satellite sees Typhoon Matmo brush eastern Philippines
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) A NASA satellite captured an image of the western quadrant of Typhoon Matmo brushing over the eastern Philippines on July 20.

Tropical Storm Wali no more, but remnants soaked Hawaii
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) On July 19, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Central Pacific Hurricane Center noted that Wali didn't even make it to the Big Island, but moisture associated with the storm did. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's GOES-West satellite captured an image of the remnant low southwest of the Big Island, and a moisture stream that extended over it.
