Tropical depression morphs into Meari in 1 day

November 03, 2016

Tropical Storm Meari began as a tropical depression numbered 26W north-northwest of Yap in the early morning hours of November 3, 2016. Later that day it intensified into Tropical Storm Meari.

Currently Meari is 295 miles north of Yap and 500 miles west of Guam. Its maximum sustained winds at present at 40 mph. It is quasi-stationary and has relocated to the northeast. Forecasters expect Meari to gradually turn west to west-northwest over the next few days and increase in forward speed. The storm is expected to reach typhoon strength over the weekend.

All tropical storms are tracked throughout the weekend on the NASA's Hurricane page on Facebook located here: https://www.facebook.com/NASAHurricane

#517 Life in Plastic, Not Fantastic
Our modern lives run on plastic. It's in the computers and phones we use. It's in our clothing, it wraps our food. It surrounds us every day, and when we throw it out, it's devastating for the environment. This week we air a live show we recorded at the 2019 Advancement of Science meeting in Washington, D.C., where Bethany Brookshire sat down with three plastics researchers - Christina Simkanin, Chelsea Rochman, and Jennifer Provencher - and a live audience to discuss plastics in our oceans. Where they are, where they are going, and what they carry with them. Related links:...
