US - Surge in Hurricane Activity May Be Rebound After Dip Decades Ago

New research suggests an increase in major hurricanes is actually a rebound from a drop in tropical activity from the 1960s to 80s, but the findings don’t necessarily mean climate change is not affecting the frequency or intensity of the storms.

US - NASA says U.S. coastal cities should expect frequent high-tide floods by mid-2030, and the Moon is partly to blame

The US will see a dramatic increase in high-tide coastal flooding in the coming decade, according to NASA. This increase will be powered by the interaction between the moon’s gravitational influence (which causes tides) and higher sea levels caused by climate change.

US - Scientists Resurrect “Forgotten” Genus of Symbiotic Algae Living in Marine Animals

In the late 1800s, scientists were stumped by the “yellow cells” they were observing within the tissues of certain temperate marine animals, including sea anemones, corals and jellyfish. Were these cells part of the animal or separate organisms? If separate, were they parasites or did they confer a benefit to the host?
