Asian Dust Flux into Philippine Sea Increased During Miocene
A new deep sea dust record from the Philippine Sea, when added to evidence from the NW Pacific, suggests how dust may record a change in dustiness or the position of wind transport.
Anticipating Climate Impacts of Major Volcanic Eruptions
NASA’s rapid response plan for gathering atmospheric data amid major volcanic eruptions, paired with efforts to improve eruption simulations, will offer better views of these events’ global effects.

Lightning Tames Typhoon Intensity Forecasting
Typhoons regularly drench densely populated western Pacific regions, but lightning could forecast intensity more than a day before a storm’s strength peaks.
Tropical Lakes May Emit More Methane
Fresh waters are one of the primary sources of natural methane emissions, but methane dynamics in tropical lakes are not as well understood as those in more temperate regions.
A New Picture of Seismogenesis on the Philippine Fault
Long-time series of satellite observation reveal that the creeping segment of the Philippine Fault is also capable of producing strong earthquakes, and show where these earthquakes might occur.
Taal Eruption and Ashfall Continue; Thousands Still at Risk
The Philippines’ volcanology institute warns that a hazardous eruption of Taal is imminent. In the past, Taal’s eruptions have lasted months and even years.
Pinatubo 25 Years Later: Eight Ways the Eruption Broke Ground
From the first rapid assessment of a volcano's history to insights on geoengineering, the 15 June 1991 eruption of Mount Pinatubo changed the way we approach and learn from volcanic hazards.
