Naturally acidic waters of Puget Sound surround UW's Friday Harbor Labs
Two years of measurements in Puget Sound show that these waters naturally tend to be more acidic, with 13 to 22 percent of the unusual acidity due to human-driven climate change.

TRMM satellite finds heavy rain in Tropical Storm Bavi
After Tropical Storm Bavi formed in the Northwestern Pacific Ocean, NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's TRMM satellite passed overhead and found heavy rain occurring in the western quadrant of the storm. A tropical storm watch is in effect for Ujae and Enewetakin in the western Marshall Islands as Bavi nears.

Inspiring Geology for 50 Years: Geoscientists to Meet in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, USA
Inspiring geology for 50 years: Geoscientists to meet in Bretton Woods, N.H., USA
Geoscientists from the Northeastern US and beyond will convene in Bretton Woods, N.H., on 23-25 March to discuss hot-topic science, expand on current findings, and explore the region's unique geologic features. This event is expected to draw more than 1,000 attendees from a variety of geoscience disciplines. Topics include climate change, coastal and glacial processes, paleo-archaeology, eco-hydrology, and the life cycle of water produced via hydraulic fracturing of the Marcellus and Utica shales.
