Coral Reef Photo

In early August of this year, University of Washington biologist Peter Ward encountered an example of the extremely rare nautilus Allonautilus scrobiculatus. Considered by Ward potentially one of the rarest species in the world, not a single one has been seen since Ward's first expedition over three decades past in 1984. Read about his latest expedition on EurekAlert!.

Video: Over the course of a study started in the late 60s, UC Santa Cruz researchers have discovered for the first time the purpose of the elephant seal's bizarre vocalizations. Listen to them here and find out what they mean on EurekAlert!

NASA sees Tropical Storm Guillermo's big stretch
When you look at Tropical Storm Guillermo on infrared NASA satellite imagery it looks stretched out with a 'tail' of clouds extending to the northeast. That's because westerly wind shear continues to batter the storm and weaken it.

Predator from a tank: New water mite genus from bromeliad phytotelmata
During an extensive sampling of the water mite fauna across the Atlantic rainforests of Brazil, a new mite genus has been proposed and diagnosed. The research also led to the discovery of a new species, called Bromeliacarus cardoso after its collection point, the State Park of Ilha do Cardoso, São Paulo, Brazil. The research is published in the open-access journal ZooKeys.

Typhoon Haiyan's destructive tsunami-like waves generated by surf beat over a coral reef
The surf beat from storm waves during Typhoon Haiyan locally generated destructive tsunami-like waves in a town protected by a coral reef. Though reefs protect towns from waves during moderate storms, they can exacerbate damage during very strong storms. Worldwide, coastal flood mapping is based on a type of numerical model that cannot account for the generation of this type of tsunami-like wave. Therefore, a change in policy is necessary to assess the potential for this hazard in coastal communities.

This week from AGU: Climate models, Earth's elasticity & 5 new research papers
Scientists have matched the output of climate models to the way the Earth's temperature record is constructed in a new study in Geophysical Research Letters. Dan Satterfield explores how climate models are doing an even better job at predicting the Earth's temperature than was thought.
