NASA Sees the End of Tropical Depression 29W
November 8, 2017 12:57 PM - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center

Born from the remnants of Tropical Cyclone 28W, Tropical Depression 29W only lasted a few days before it began rapidly decaying. NASA-NOAA’s Suomi NPP satellite found the disorganized storm weakening over the Malay Peninsula.

We Should Use Central Pressure Deficit, Not Wind Speed, To Predict Hurricane Damage
November 8, 2017 12:38 PM - Purdue University

The system for categorizing hurricanes accounts only for peak wind speeds, but research published in Nature Communications explains why central pressure deficit is a better indicator of economic damage from storms in the United States.

Huge Carbon Sink Exists in Soil Minerals WSU Researcher Finds
November 8, 2017 12:35 PM - Washington State University

A Washington State University researcher has discovered that vast amounts of carbon can be stored by soil minerals more than a foot below the surface. The finding could help offset the rising greenhouse-gas emissions helping warm the Earth’s climate.

Eyes on the Coast—Video Cameras Help Forecast Coastal Change
November 8, 2017 08:13 AM - United States Geological Survey (USGS)

Coastal communities count on beaches for recreation and for protection from large waves, but beaches are vulnerable to threats such as erosion by storms and flooding. Whether beaches grow, shrink, or even disappear depends in part on what happens just offshore. How do features like shifting sandbars affect waves, currents, and the movement of sand from the beach to offshore and back?

Study Bolsters Theory of Heat Source Under West Antarctica

A new NASA study adds evidence that a geothermal heat source called a mantle plume lies deep below Antarctica's Marie Byrd Land, explaining some of the melting that creates lakes and rivers under the ice sheet.
