Citizen science model proposed to fill fundamental ocean data gap
A pioneering approach published today in the open access, peer reviewed scientific journal PLOS Biology challenges conventional research methods and proposes a global effort to engage and empower citizen scientists to gather basic ocean data aboard small vessels on the most common sailing routes.

Indian Ocean expedition pioneers citizen oceanography
Recreational sailors are being called upon to become 'citizen oceanographers' and help provide vital scientific knowledge about the world's oceans by sampling and testing remote waters from their yachts. In 2013, Dr. Federico Lauro, a UNSW Australia microbiologist and national sailing champion, led an international scientific expedition across the Indian Ocean to pioneer this cost-effective method of data collection. With the right equipment, citizen scientists could gather large quantities of information too, his team says.

Biologists try to dig endangered pupfish out of its hole
A UC Berkeley biologist is giving important guidance in the efforts to rescue a critically endangered fish found only in Devils Hole, about 60 miles east of Death Valley National Park. It is estimated that fewer than 100 Devils Hole pupfish remain. Considered the world's rarest fish, the wild pupfish faces a 28 to 32 percent risk of extinction over the next 20 years.

NASA catches the end of Tropical Depression 14W
Tropical Depression 14W was a short-lived storm that only lasted through four bulletins from the Joint Typhoon Warning Center. NASA's Aqua satellite captured infrared data on the storm's cloud top temperatures as it passed over China's Hainan Island and headed toward a final landfall in mainland China.

Scientists apply biomedical technique to reveal changes in body of the ocean
For decades, doctors have developed methods to diagnose how different types of cells and systems in the body are functioning. Now scientists have adapted an emerging biomedical technique to study the vast body of the ocean.

NASA sees post-Tropical Cyclone Norbert fading near Baja California
NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Tropical Storm Norbert on Sept. 7 before it weakened to a post- tropical storm. The AIRS instrument aboard captured infrared data that showed a 'sliver' of strong thunderstorms remained around the center of the waning storm.
