Pollution responsible for 16 percent of deaths globally - Lancet Commission report

5:01 pm Eastern | World

Diseases caused by pollution were responsible in 2015 for an estimated 9 million premature deaths -- 16% of all deaths worldwide -- three times more deaths than AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria combined; and fifteen times more than all wars and other forms of violence.read more »

AVO Bogoslof YELLOW/ADVISORY - No activity observed in seismic and infrasound data.

4:06 pm Eastern | U.S. News

Oct 23, 2017 19:56 - Low-level unrest at Bogoslof volcano continues. No activity was observed in partly cloudy satellite views over the past day. No significant activity was detected in seismic or infrasound data from sensors located on neighboring islands over the past day. Bogoslof volcano remains in an unpredictable condition. Activity can escalate quickly with explosions producing high-altitude (>15,000 ft) volcanic clouds with little to no detectable precursory activity. Some previous explosions have been preceded by an increase in earthquake activity that allowed for short-term ...read more »

AVO Cleveland ORANGE/WATCH - Unrest continues. Lava effusion continues.

4:06 pm Eastern | U.S. News

Oct 23, 2017 19:56 - Unrest at Cleveland volcano continues. Light steaming was seen in several web camera views. These observations are consistent with the existence of a hot lava dome in the summit crater. No significant activity related to lava effusion observed in seismic data and no explosive activity detected in infrasound data over the past day. Lava domes that have been erupted since 2001 have all been destroyed by explosive activity within weeks to months after lava effusion. These explosions typically produce relatively small volcanic ash clouds that dissipate within hours, ...read more »

Prozac in ocean water a possible threat to sea life

3:18 pm Eastern | U.S. News

Oregon shore crabs exhibit risky behavior when they're exposed to the antidepressant Prozac, making it easier for predators to catch them, according to a new study from Portland State University (PSU).read more »

HVO Kilauea ORANGE/WATCH - Eruption continues at summit and East Rift Zone. Flows pose no threat to nearby communities.

2:37 pm Eastern | SciTech

Oct 23, 2017 18:26 - Activity Summary: Kīlauea Volcano continues to erupt at its summit and from the Puʻu ʻŌʻō vent on its East Rift Zone. The episode 61g lava flow is still entering the ocean at Kamokuna and producing scattered surface flow activity. These flows pose no threat to nearby communities at this time. The height of the lava lake at Kīlauea‘s summit is about 30 m (100 ft) below the Overlook crater rim. There have been no significant changes in ground deformation or seismicity rates across the volcano. Summit Observations: Very slight inflationary tilt was recorded by ...read more »
