Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology Identifies Significant Shift in Indian Ocean Dipol

The Australian Bureau of Meteorology has today issued a mid-cycle update to its Climate Outlook for October to December 2015, as a result of rapidly evolving changes in key climate drivers in the oceans around Australia.


Bureau of Meteorology Climate Prediction Manager, Dr Andrew Watkins, said the Bureau monitors its rainfall and temperature model outlooks very closely.

Ancient Mammoth Unearthed on Monday in Farmer’s Field – VIDEO

An ancient mammoth unearthed in a farmer’s field southwest of Ann Arbor this week may provide clues about the lives of early humans in the region.


A team of University of Michigan paleontologists and an excavator who donated his time worked all day at the site in Lima Township, roughly 10 miles southwest of Ann Arbor and several miles from the town of Chelsea. They were able to recover about 20 percent of the animal’s bones, including the skull and two tusks, numerous vertebrae and ribs, the pelvis and both shoulder blades.

The bones are from an adult male mammoth that likely lived 11,700 to 15,000 years ago, though the remains have not yet been dated, said U-M paleontologist Daniel Fisher, who led the dig. The site holds “excellent evidence of human activity” associated with the mammoth remains, he said.

Researchers Find New Mathematic Way to Weigh a Star

Until now, scientists have determined the mass of stars, planets and moons by studying their motion in relation to others nearby, using the gravitational pull between the two as the basis for their calculations. However, in the case of young pulsars, mathematicians at Southampton have now found a new way to measure their mass, even if a star exists on its own in space.


Researchers from the University of Southampton have developed a new method for measuring the mass of pulsars – highly magnetized rotating neutron stars formed from the remains of massive stars after they explode into supernovae.

Big Volcanic Eruptions Affect on Rain

In the first study of its kind, scientists sought to better understand how big volcanic eruptions, which can trigger a shortage of rainfall in many regions of the world, can impact on rivers.


Their findings could help scientists predict how water availability in regions throughout the world might be affected by future eruptions.

Researchers sought to learn more about the impact of a process in which volcanoes give off aerosol particles that reflect sunlight, cooling the atmosphere and leading to reduced rainfall.

Mexico’s Colima Volcano Erupts – VIDEO

Mexico’s Colima volcano has erupted spewing smoke up to 2,500 meters into the air.

Sometimes called the “Fire Volcano” it lies in the south west of the county. It has been showing some activity for the past two months, coating nearby villages in a blanket of ash, prompting evacuations.

Officially known as the Colima Volcano, it was previously active in January and is part of the Pacific’s Ring of Fire.

Egypt Pledges Fast Work Amid Search for Nefertiti’s Tomb

Egyptian authorities promised Thursday they would move quickly to get new radar equipment needed to search for Queen Nefertiti’s tomb amid a new theory it could be in an alleged, hidden chamber behind King Tutankhamun’s tomb in the famed Valley of the Kings.

Queen Nefertiti's tomb

The theory, presented this summer by British Egyptologist Nicholas Reeves, speculates that King Tut, who died at the age of 19, may have been rushed into an outer chamber of what was originally Nefertiti’s tomb.

Archeologists have yet to find the tomb of Queen Nefertiti, fabled for her beauty and famous since her bust was discovered in 1912, now on display at the Neues Museum in Berlin.

Since the 1922 discovery of King Tut’s 3,300 year-old pharaonic mausoleum in the Valley of the Kings near the city of Luxor, his tomb has become the focus of attention for archaeologists world over – and one of Egypt’s prime tourist draws in modern times.
