New scientific review investigates potential influences on recent UK winter floods
A comprehensive review of all potential factors behind the 2013-14 UK winter floods is published today in the journal Nature Climate Change. The paper does not definitively answer whether human activity played a role in the magnitude of the winter flood events. It does, though, examine how factors such as the state of the global oceans may have interacted with wind patterns and subsequent high-level atmospheric features.

NASA sees Tropical Storm Karina overpowered by Hurricane Marie
Hurricane Marie is a powerhouse in the Eastern Pacific Ocean and because it is close to Tropical Storm Karina, Karina is being weakened by wind shear from the larger, more powerful storm. NOAA's GOES-East satellite captured the tiny storm near Hurricane Marie today.

NASA sees Marie become a major hurricane, causing dangerous surf
The National Hurricane Center expected Marie to become a major hurricane (Category 3 or higher on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale) and it did. On Aug. 24, when NASA's Aqua satellite passed overhead, Marie reached Category 4 hurricane status and maintained strength on Aug. 25.
