Cracking the code of a long-distance swimmer

Born in the Sargasso Sea, that Atlantic Ocean gyre east of Bermuda, baby European eels will travel 4,000 miles to the freshwater rivers of Europe. Now scientists might have answered a century-old question of how these young eels accomplish such vast oceanic migrations.

Capturing the genesis of Tropical Storm Hermine

NOAA Hurricane Hunters are flying back-to-back missions to study the newly developed Tropical Storm Hermine in the Gulf of Mexico, capturing its evolution from a cluster of thunderstorms into a tropical storm. Getting data during such transitions can help improve hurricane models which currently don’t predict transitions well. Our understanding of the physical processes of early storm development remains limited, largely because there are few observations.

Microscopic organisms increase coral erosion in acidic waters

A new NOAA-led study published online today in PLOS ONE demonstrates that in naturally highly acidified waters, coral skeletons face increased erosion or eating away of reef structure by microscopic organisms, called bioerosion.
