Dangerous Hurricane Willa probed By NASA and Japan's GPM satellite

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Hurricane Willa is a major hurricane threatening western Mexico. Forecasters were able to see the rate of rainfall occurring within the powerful storm when the Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM's core satellite passed overhead and provided that data.

NASA tracks Tropical Storm Yutu, warnings posted

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed over the Northwestern Pacific Ocean and captured a visible image of Tropical Storm Yutu as warnings were posted. A typhoon watch is in force for Tinian and Saipan and a tropical storm watch is in force for Rota.

Fracking wastewater accumulation found in freshwater mussels' shells

( Penn State) Elevated concentrations of strontium, an element associated with oil and gas wastewaters, have accumulated in the shells of freshwater mussels downstream from fracking wastewater disposal sites, according to researchers from Penn State and Union College.

NASA sees tiny Tropical Storm Vicente near southwestern Mexico's coast

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed over the Eastern Pacific Ocean and captured a visible image of the small tropical storm named Vicente.

Scientists make new 'green' electronic polymer-based films with protein nanowires

( University of Massachusetts at Amherst) A team at UMass Amherst has produced a new class of electronic materials that may lead to a 'green,' more sustainable future in biomedical and environmental sensing, say research leaders microbiologist Derek Lovley and polymer scientist Todd Emrick. They say the work shows it is possible to combine protein nanowires with a polymer to produce a flexible electronic composite material that retains the electrical conductivity and unique sensing capabilities of protein nanowires.
