As permafrost soils thaw soil microbes amplify global climate change
Scientists have discovered how an invisible menagerie of microbes in permafrost soils acts as global drivers of Earth processes such as climate via gas exchange between soils and the atmosphere. These findings will help climate modelers more accurately predict Earth's future climate.

NASA HS3 mission Global Hawk's bullseye in Hurricane Edouard
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Hurricane Severe Storms Sentinel or HS3 mission flew the unmanned Global Hawk aircraft on two missions between Sept. 11 and 15 into Hurricane Edouard and scored a bullseye by gathering information in the eye of the strengthening storm. Scientists saw how upper-level wind shear was affecting Edouard on the HS3's Global Hawk flight of the 2014 campaign over Sept. 11 and 12, and saw the hurricane strengthen during the sixth flight on Sept. 15 and 16.

University of Houston research offers hope for water-starved West
(University of Houston) With more than more than 2.7 billion acre-feet of brackish groundwater, even West Texas isn't technically bone dry. But current desalination techniques are expensive, prompting intense interest in new methods to draw minerals and salt from brackish water. Shankar Chellam, professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of Houston, is working on a more efficient, less expensive way to remove contaminants and salt from brackish surface water. The treatments would also apply to brackish underground aquifers.
