New insights on hurricane intensity, pollution transport

As tropical storm Isaac was gaining momentum toward the Mississippi River in August 2012, researchers were dropping instruments from the sky above to study the ocean conditions beneath the storm. The newly published study showed how a downwelling of warm waters deepened the storm’s fuel tank for a rapid intensification toward hurricane status. The results also revealed how hurricane-generated currents and ocean eddies can transport oil and other pollutants to coastal regions.

Ongoing recovery efforts take toll on hurricane survivors

According to a major report on NJ residents living in Superstorm Sandy’s path, over 100,000 experienced significant structural damage to their primary homes.

Researchers find reasons behind increases in urban flooding

While rising sea levels are the main driver for increasing flood risk to American cities, storm surges caused by weather patterns that favor high precipitation exacerbates ‘compound flooding’ potential. With nearly 40 percent of the US population residing in coastal areas, compound flooding can have devastating impacts for low-lying, densely populated and heavily developed regions when strong storm surge and high rainfall amounts occur together.

Predicting the shape of river deltas

Researchers have devised a simple way to predict a river delta’s shape, given two competing factors: its river’s force in depositing sediment into the ocean, and ocean waves’ strength in pushing that sediment back along the coast. Depending on the balance of the two, the coastline of a river delta may take on a smooth ‘cuspate’ shape, or a more pointed ‘crenulated’ outline, resembling a bird’s foot.

New Grand Canyon age research focuses on Western Grand Canyon

The age of the Grand Canyon (USA) has been studied for years, with recent technological advances facilitating new attempts to determine when erosion of this iconic canyon began. The result is sometimes conflicting ages based on different types of data; most data support the notion that the canyon began to erode to its current form about six million years ago. Then even newer, “high-tech,” data became available and questions were again raised about whether the western end of the canyon could be older.
