Where did the missing oil go? New FSU study says some is sitting on the Gulf floor
A new study led by Florida State University professor of oceanography Jeff Chanton finds that some 6 million to 10 million gallons of oil from the BP oil spill are buried in the sediment on the Gulf floor, about 62 miles southeast of the Mississippi Delta.

Invasive species in the Great Lakes by 2063
The Great Lakes are the freshwater system that has been the most invaded by non-native species. Researchers predict they will remain vulnerable to future waves of invasions, unless some US-Canadian coordinated measures are implemented. The scientists also identify some species at high risk of being in the Lakes by 2063, if nothing is done.

Tropical Cyclone Eunice still churning in the Southern Indian Ocean
The MODIS instrument that flies aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured this image of Tropical Cyclone Eunice in the South Indian Ocean, well south of Diego Garcia and the Cocos Islands. Its location is 637 nautical miles south-southwest of these islands. The storm is currently tracking south-southeastward at 10 knots.

Global warming won't mean more stormy weather
A study led by atmospheric physicists at the University of Toronto finds that global warming will not lead to an overall increasingly stormy atmosphere, a topic debated by scientists for decades. Instead, strong storms will become stronger while weak storms become weaker, and the cumulative result of the number of storms will remain unchanged.
