Invest 99L Organizing Over Gulf of Mexico

Dr. Jeff Masters, September 1, 2014

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

The center of a broad area of low pressure associated with tropical wave 99L is now over the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico's Bay of Campeche, and the disturbance is growing more organized as it heads west-northwest at about 10 mph. Sea Surface Temperatures (SSTs) were very warm, near 30°C (86°F), the atmosphere was moist, and wind shear was moderate, 15 - 20 knots. These conditions are favorable for development.

Climate Case Study: California Drought (1)

Dr. Ricky Rood, August 22, 2014

Professor, University of Michigan

I can’t help but think of the carnivores finding the easy pickings of the herds collected around the drying water holes at what would become the Agate Fossil Beds. Then, from that, we don’t have to be beardogs. We humans are unique because of our ability to remember, to reason, to develop and to accumulate knowledge; we have the ability to make decisions that influence the future of our environment.
