Texas Brace for Heavy Rains and Flooding This Week as Tropical Storm Nicholas Approaches
Tropical Storm Nicholas has developed in the southern Gulf of Mexico and will propel toward the Texas Coast, gaining a little more strength over the next few days. Torrential rain and possible flooding will be a major threat for most regions within the storm's path which is coastal/inland Louisiana and coastal/inland Texas.
Carbon Emissions May Skyrocket Due to California's Lack of Efficiency in Water Usage
The water use in California could really boost carbon emissions if water efficiency actions aren't taken. A new report from Next 10 - nonprofit think tank - released Thursday and the Pacific Institute researchers roughly calculated that if water use and demand remain the same in California, population growth implies that urban demand for water could rise by 24% by 2035.
How Louisiana's Map May Never be Normal Again After Hurricane Ida
Louisiana's satellite images captured ahead of Hurricane Ida and after revealed a greatly changed coastline, that has many low-lying regions still flooded with water. Scientists are painstakingly keeping an eye on the landscape to know how it develops over time, and if some alterations are permanent. Ida was one of the most powerful storms to impact the state.
Over 100 Oil-soaked Birds Discovered off Louisiana's Coast After an Oil Spill Prompted by Ida's Flooding
Over 100 birds soaked with oil have been discovered in Hurricane Ida's aftermath. Ida prompted a flood in a refinery which led to spillage of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico. The number of oiled birds has been increasingly noticed within heavy pockets of oil all over the Phillips 66 Alliance Refinery located in Belle Chasse, and also close to flooded fields and wet ponds along the Mississippi River.
Butterflies Consume Live Young to Increase Supply of Mating Pheromones
Milkweed butterflies have been caught eating live caterpillars for the first time, and these caterpillars turn out to be the young of their own species. Researchers said the insects do this so that their supply of mating pheromones will be increased. The behavior of a butterfly towards a species belonging to their own subfamily - Danainae - is included in the latest findings that bring up questions in insect evolutionary theory

Researchers: Migrating Bird Prefer Routes with the Best Atmospheric Condition
With the use of GPS tracking technology, researchers observed five species of large land birds as they journey all over the globe, completing long sea crossings. They discovered that every bird exploited wind and uplift to decrease energy costs while flying, they even adjust their migratory path so they can profit from the best atmospheric conditions
Wildfire Burn Scars Can Initiate Thunderstorms, Increasing Risk of Flooding
Every year, wildfires consume millions of acres of land and it leaves changed landscapes that are susceptible to flooding. But it is less known that these regions already left susceptible can also intensify, triggering thunderstorms in some cases. Wildfire burn scars are usually left with small vegetation and very dark soil surface that is likely to repel instead of taking in water.
