Satellite sees cold front headed to absorb Bermuda's Tropical Storm Fay
Tropical Storm Fay is affecting Bermuda on Sunday, Oct. 12, but a cold front over the eastern US is expected to absorb the storm over the next day or two. Both were seen in an image from NOAA's GOES-East satellite.

NASA sees a weaker Typhoon Vongfong near Amami Oshima
The once-powerful Category 5 Typhoon Vongfong has fortunately weakened to a barely Category 1 typhoon as it approaches the big islands of Japan. NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite and NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Vongfong on Oct. 11 and noticed the heaviest precipitation was north of the center.

Britain on brink of freshwater species 'invasion' from south east Europe
New research shows multiple invasive species with the same origin facilitate each other's ability to colonize ecosystems. By studying how these species interact as well as current population locations, researchers believe that Britain is heading for an 'invasion meltdown' of freshwater species from south east Europe.

Icebergs once drifted to Florida, new climate model suggests
Using a first-of-its-kind, high-resolution numerical model to describe ocean circulation during the last ice age about 21,000 years ago, oceanographer Alan Condron of the University of Massachusetts Amherst has shown that icebergs and meltwater from the North American ice sheet would have regularly reached South Carolina and even southern Florida. The models are supported by the discovery of iceberg scour marks on the sea floor along the entire continental shelf.

NASA sees birth of Atlantic's subtropical depression seven: Bermuda on watch
The seventh depression of the Atlantic Ocean Hurricane Season was born on Oct. 10, but it's subtropical. NASA's Aqua satellite looked at the developing depression in infrared light and saw strong thunderstorms within.

Tiny travellers of the animal world: Hitchhikers on marine driftwood
A new study led by a Canadian marine zoologist reviews the world list of specialist driftwood talitrids, which so far comprises a total of 7 representatives, including two newly described species. These tiny animals all live in and feed on decomposing marine driftwood. Dispersal to distant oceanic islands is made possible because they use floating driftwood to hitch a ride to their destination. The study was published in the open access journal Zoosystematics and Evolution.

Mineralization of sand particles boosts microbial water filtration
Mineral coatings on sand particles actually encourage microbial activity in the rapid sand filters that are used to treat groundwater for drinking, according to a paper published ahead of print in Applied and Environmental Microbiology. These findings resoundingly refute, for the first time, the conventional wisdom that the mineral deposits interfere with microbial colonization of the sand particles.
