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.

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.

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.

Fat fish illuminate human obesity
Blind cavefish that have adapted to annual cycles of starvation and binge-eating have mutations in the gene MC4R, the same gene that is mutated in certain obese people with insatiable appetites, according to a new study led by Harvard Medical School geneticists.

How clouds get their brightness
How clouds form and how they help set the temperature of the earth are two of the big remaining questions in climate research. Now, a study of clouds over the world's remotest ocean shows that ocean life is responsible for up to half the cloud droplets that pop in and out of existence during summer.

Newest NOAA fisheries survey ship begins West Coast and Alaska whale survey
NOAA's newest research ship, the Reuben Lasker, departed San Diego this week on its first scientific mission, which includes surveying gray whales along the West Coast. The survey will also search the Gulf of Alaska for right whales, among the most rare and endangered whales on Earth. The expedition is a collaboration between the Southwest Fisheries Science Center in La Jolla, California, and Alaska Fisheries Science Center in Seattle.

Satellite shows Post-Tropical Depression Ela northeast of Hawaii
NOAA's GOES-West satellite saw that Hawaii is in the middle of a triangle of tropical cyclones. Post-Tropical Depression Ela was located northeast of Hawaii on July 10, and the forecast calls for the storm to move west toward the islands over the weekend of July 11 and 12 and dissipate.

To avoid dangerous shark encounters, information trumps culling
California scientists found that the risk of white shark attack for individual ocean users in California has fallen strikingly, by over 91 percent, since 1950, in a study to be published online ahead of print in the Ecological Society of America's journal Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment later this month. Information that empowers ocean users to avoid the large predators is far more effective for public safety than culling sharks.

NOAA, partners predict severe harmful algal bloom for Lake Erie
NOAA is predicting 2015 western Lake Erie harmful algal bloom season will be among the most severe in recent years and could become the second worst behind the record-setting 2011 bloom.The bloom will be expected to measure 8.7 on the severity index with a range from 8.1 to potentially as high as 9.5. This is more severe than 2014's 6.5, and may equal or exceed 2013, which had the second worse bloom this century.
