NASA sees bursts of thunderstorms in Tropical Depression Genevieve's center
The AIRS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite provided a look at what's happening under Tropical Depression Genevieve's clouds using infrared light, and it appears that thunderstorms are bubbling up again.

NASA satellite sees a somewhat lopsided Typhoon Halong
Infrared satellite imagery from NASA shows bands of powerful thunderstorms around Typhoon Halong's center, southern and eastern quadrants, while the northern quadrant is lacking in them. Typhoon Halong appears somewhat lopsided on satellite imagery because thunderstorm development in the northern side of the storm is being inhibited.

NASA's Aqua satellite puts 2 eyes on Hurricane Bertha
Two instruments or 'eyes' from NASA's Aqua satellite were peering at Hurricane Bertha in the North Atlantic Ocean shortly after it became the season's second hurricane. Bertha's hurricane status didn't last long as it weakened to a tropical storm today, Aug. 5.

99th Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of America
Ecology research paper wins national award
A research paper in the field of ecology by a graduate student at the University of California, Riverside and a colleague has been selected as this year's recipient of the Thomas M. Frost Award for Excellence in Graduate Research, sponsored by the aquatic section of the Ecological Society of America. The paper discusses how the authors manipulated many ecosystems at once to examine how the connections between species change over time.

Newly discovered juvenile whale shark aggregation in Red Sea
Whale sharks (Rhincodon typus) -- which grow more than 30 feet long -- are the largest fish in the world's ocean, but little is known about their movements on a daily basis or over years. A newly discovered juvenile whale shark aggregation off Saudi Arabia is giving researchers a rare glimpse into the lives of these gentle giants.

Satellite view of a hyperactive Eastern and Central Pacific Ocean
NASA and NOAA satellites have been supplying forecasters with data developing tropical cyclones in the Eastern and Central Pacific Ocean and over the last several days. There have been as many as five tropical systems at the same time. On Monday, Aug. 4, there were three tropical systems stretching from west to east: Tropical Depression Genevieve in the Central Pacific, Hurricane Iselle and Tropical Storm Julio in the Eastern Pacific.

NASA sees Typhoon Halong's eye wink
As Super Typhoon Halong tracks north through the Northwestern Pacific Ocean, NASA's Aqua and Terra satellites have seen the powerful storm appear to wink at space as it developed and 'opened' an eye and then close its eye as clouds moved over it. That wink appears to be a sign of eyewall replacement in the powerful storm.

NASA catches the brief life of Tropical Storm Nakri
The low pressure area known as System 96W struggled to organize for a week and finally became Tropical Storm Nakri on August 2 as the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership satellite passed overhead. Nakri had a short life, however, as it dissipated the following day while approaching South Korea.

NOAA, EPA-supported scientists find average but large Gulf dead zone
NOAA- and EPA-supported scientists have mapped the Gulf of Mexico dead zone, an area with low oxygen water, measuring 5,052 square miles this summer -- approximately the size of the state of Connecticut. The measurements were taken during the 30th annual hypoxia survey cruise from July 27 to Aug. 2.
