Scientists to investigate effects of climate change on Chesapeake Bay
A Virginia Tech researcher will examine the effects of climate change on water quality in the Chesapeake Bay. A multi-university team will answer the ongoing questions of how the impacts of man-made stressors such as agricultural use and burgeoning populations work in concert with a warming planet on water systems.

New study reveals vulnerability of sharks as collateral damage in commercial fishing
A new study that examined the survival rates of 12 different shark species when captured as unintentional bycatch in commercial longline fishing operations found large differences in survival rates across the 12 species, with bigeye thresher, dusky, and scalloped hammerhead being the most vulnerable.

Has Antarctic sea ice expansion been overestimated?
New research suggests that Antarctic sea ice may not be expanding as fast as previously thought. A team of scientists say much of the increase measured for Southern Hemisphere sea ice could be due to a processing error in the satellite data. The findings are published today in The Cryosphere, a journal of the European Geosciences Union.

Typhoon Rammasun made final landfall near China and Vietnam border
Typhoon Rammasun made landfall in southern China on July 19 bringing heavy rain and typhoon-strength winds to the south China/Vietnam border. NASA and NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite captured an infrared image the typhoon that showed strong thunderstorms with heavy rain potential.

Tropical Storm Wali no more, but remnants soaked Hawaii
On July 19, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Central Pacific Hurricane Center noted that Wali didn't even make it to the Big Island, but moisture associated with the storm did. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's GOES-West satellite captured an image of the remnant low southwest of the Big Island, and a moisture stream that extended over it.

Seals forage at offshore wind farms
By using sophisticated GPS tracking to monitor seals' every movement, researchers have shown for the first time that some individuals are repeatedly drawn to offshore wind farms and pipelines. Those man-made structures probably serve as artificial reefs and attractive hunting grounds, according to a study published in the Cell Press journal Current Biology on July 21.
