A Cyclone Warning is in effect from Broome to Mardie, and adjacent...

Brief Life Of Tropical Cyclone Peta Seen By NASA
2013-01-24 15:40:04

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Infrared data from NASA's Aqua satellite has shown that soon after a low pressure system in northwestern West Australia became Tropical Storm Peta, it made landfall and started to fall apart. Early on Jan. 22, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) gave System 93S a high chance for development into a tropical depression. At that time, System 93S was located near 19.2S and 120.7E, about 415 nautical miles (477.6 miles/768.6 km) east-northeast of...

A Stanford research team is exploring what makes aboriginal hunting grounds molded by fire more biologically diverse than lands untouched by humans. In Australia, Martu hunter-gatherers light fires to expose the hiding places of their prey: monitor lizards called goanna that can grow up to 6 feet long. These generations-old hunting practices, part of the Martu day-to-day routine, have reshaped Australia's Western Desert habitats, according to Stanford University anthropologists Douglas and...

MADISON - A new analysis of ancient minerals called zircons suggests that a harsh climate may have scoured and possibly even destroyed the surface of the Earth's earliest continents. Zircons, the oldest known materials on Earth, offer a window in time back as far as 4.4 billion years ago, when the planet was a mere 150 million years old. Because these crystals are exceptionally resistant to chemical changes, they have become the gold standard for determining the age of ancient rocks, says...
