NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP sees remnants of Mekkhala
After Tropical Storm Mekkhala made landfall in the central Philippines and tracked north, it weakened to a depression. By Jan. 20, NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite saw that it was a remnant circulation northeast of the Philippines, over the northwestern Pacific Ocean.

The once-powerful Tropical Cyclone Bansi stirred up ocean sediment
Tropical Cyclone Bansi reached a Category 4 status on the Saffir-Simpson Scale on Jan. 15 and 16 as it moved through the Southern Indian Ocean. By Jan. 19 as the storm was weakening over open ocean, NASA's Aqua satellite captured a picture of sediment stirred up from the storm around the Cargados Carajos Shoals.

Climate change does not bode well for picky eaters
In a part of the world that is experiencing the most dramatic increase in temperature and climate change, two very similar species of animals are responding very differently. New research published today suggests that how these species have adapted to co-exist with one another might be to blame.

'Citizen science' reveals positive news for Puget Sound seabirds
Many seabird species are thought to have declined around Puget Sound since the 1960s and 1970s but the new results indicate the trends have turned up for many species. The Puget Sound Partnership lists some of the species as barometers of the health of Puget Sound.

Giant atmospheric rivers add mass to Antarctica's ice sheet
Extreme weather phenomena called atmospheric rivers were behind intense snowstorms recorded in 2009 and 2011 in East Antarctica. The resulting snow accumulation partly offset recent ice loss from the Antarctic ice sheet, report researchers from KU Leuven.

Predatory sea snails produce weaponized insulin
The venom of a tropical cone snail contains large amounts of specialized insulin that rapidly disables fish. Discoverers at the University of Utah say this stripped-down version of the hormone may prove useful in studying insulin function and energy metabolism in people.
