TRMM satellite peers at rainfall in developing low near Mozambique
The TRMM satellite flew above a System 91S, a tropical low pressure area, in the Mozambique Channel on Jan. 28, 2014, at 1011 UTC/5:11 a.m. EST. TRMM data collected with this pass may be helpful in evaluating this low for possible tropical cyclone formation.

Sponge bacteria, a chemical factory
A new, unknown strain of bacteria produces most of the bioactive substances that the stony sponge Theonella swinhoei exudes. An international research team led by ETH Zurich professor Jörn Piel describes these natural products, the associated genes and strain of bacteria in a publication in Nature.

Deaths attributed directly to climate change cast pall over penguins
Climate change is killing penguin chicks from the world's largest colony of Magellanic penguins, not just indirectly -- by depriving them of food, as has been repeatedly documented for these and other seabirds -- but directly as a result of drenching rainstorms and, at other times, heat, according to new findings from the University of Washington.

Research shows arsenic, mercury and selenium in Asian carp not a health concern to most
Researchers at the Prairie Research Institute's Illinois Natural History Survey have found that overall, concentrations of arsenic, selenium, and mercury in bighead and silver carp from the lower Illinois River do not appear to be a health concern for a majority of human consumers.

'Chameleon of the sea' reveals its secrets
The cuttlefish, known as the "chameleon of the sea," can rapidly alter both the color and pattern of its skin, helping it blend in with its surroundings and avoid predators. In a paper published Jan. 29 in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface, the Harvard-MBL team reports new details on the sophisticated biomolecular nanophotonic system underlying the cuttlefish's color-changing ways.
