NJIT researchers working to safeguard the shoreline
An NJIT research team has estimated the total mass of oil that reached the Gulf of Mexico shore in the wake of the BP Deepwater Horizon blowout. It's the first time such an estimate was reported, and the study is published in the August issue of Environmental Science and Technology.

NASA catches birth of Tropical Storm Odile
The Eastern Pacific Ocean continues to turn out tropical cyclones and NASA's Aqua satellite caught the birth of the fifteenth tropical depression on Sept. 10 and shortly afterward, it strengthened into a tropical storm and was renamed Odile.

NASA tracks Norbert moisture to Arizona's drenching thunderstorms
Post-tropical storm Norbert may have been centered a couple of hundred miles off the northwestern coast of Mexico's Baja California, but the flow of warm, moist air that spun around it generated drenching thunderstorms over Arizona. NASA's TRMM satellite saw Norbert's remnants and those Arizona thunderstorms dropping rainfall at over 2 inches per hour.

US cityscapes show consistent patterns of 'urban evolution'
In a special issue of Biogeochemistry, scientists studying urban ecosystems say US urban landscapes are remarkably similar geologically and biochemically, share certain traits that can function as markers for urbanization, and evolve along similar pathways. The authors propose the concept of 'urban evolution.'

NASA sees Tropical Storm Fengshen looking more like a frontal system
NASA's Terra satellite captured an image of Tropical Storm Fengshen as it continued moving away from the east coast of Japan. Satellite imagery showed that the storm resembled a frontal system more than a tropical storm because it appeared stretched from southwest to northeast.

Southern Ocean's role in climate regulation, ocean health is goal of $21 million project
A six-year, $21 million program by Princeton University and 10 partner institutions will seek to make the importance and health of the Southern Ocean encircling Antarctica better known scientifically and publicly. The Southern Ocean Carbon and Climate Observations and Modeling program, or SOCCOM, will create a biogeochemical and physical portrait of the ocean using an expanded computational capacity and hundreds of robotic floats deployed around Antarctica.

Indian Ocean expedition pioneers citizen oceanography
Recreational sailors are being called upon to become 'citizen oceanographers' and help provide vital scientific knowledge about the world's oceans by sampling and testing remote waters from their yachts. In 2013, Dr. Federico Lauro, a UNSW Australia microbiologist and national sailing champion, led an international scientific expedition across the Indian Ocean to pioneer this cost-effective method of data collection. With the right equipment, citizen scientists could gather large quantities of information too, his team says.

Biologists try to dig endangered pupfish out of its hole
A UC Berkeley biologist is giving important guidance in the efforts to rescue a critically endangered fish found only in Devils Hole, about 60 miles east of Death Valley National Park. It is estimated that fewer than 100 Devils Hole pupfish remain. Considered the world's rarest fish, the wild pupfish faces a 28 to 32 percent risk of extinction over the next 20 years.

NASA catches the end of Tropical Depression 14W
Tropical Depression 14W was a short-lived storm that only lasted through four bulletins from the Joint Typhoon Warning Center. NASA's Aqua satellite captured infrared data on the storm's cloud top temperatures as it passed over China's Hainan Island and headed toward a final landfall in mainland China.
