In early August of this year, University of Washington biologist Peter Ward encountered an example of the extremely rare nautilus Allonautilus scrobiculatus. Considered by Ward potentially one of the rarest species in the world, not a single one has been seen since Ward's first expedition over three decades past in 1984. Read about his latest expedition on EurekAlert!.

Video: Over the course of a study started in the late 60s, UC Santa Cruz researchers have discovered for the first time the purpose of the elephant seal's bizarre vocalizations. Listen to them here and find out what they mean on EurekAlert!

NASA's Terra Satellite sees formation of Tropical Storm Enrique
When NASA's Terra satellite passed over Tropical depression 6E on July 12 at 19:05 UTC (3:05 p.m. EDT), the MODIS instrument captured a visible-light image that showed the bulk of clouds and showers were banding southwest of the center.

Ocean warming leads to stronger precipitation extremes
Due to climate change, not only atmospheric, but also oceanic, temperatures are rising. A study published in the international journal Nature Geoscience led by scientists at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel shows that increases in sea surface temperature can contribute to the development of stronger precipitation events. Their findings are underpinned by flash-flooding in June in the Olympic city of Sochi, Russia.

Public Release: 13-Jul-2015
Submerged volcano cluster discovered off coast of Sydney
Australia's new ocean-going research vessel Investigator has discovered extinct volcanoes likely to be 50 million years old about 250 km off the coast of Sydney. They were discovered in 4,900 meters of water during a UNSW Australia-led expedition searching for nursery grounds of larval lobsters. At the same time the ship was also routinely mapping the seafloor. The largest of the four volcanoes is 1.5 km across the rim and rises 700 meters from the sea floor.

Nature Climate Change
Air travel and climate: A potential new feedback?
What impact does a warming planet have on air travel and how might that, in turn, affect the rate of warming itself? A new study by researchers at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and University of Wisconsin Madison found a connection between climate and airline flight times, suggesting a feedback loop could exist between the carbon emissions of airplanes and our changing climate. The study was published in this week's Nature Climate Change.
