#Hurricane #Maria 5 p.m. ET update from NOAA's @NWS National Hurricane Center (See hurricanes.gov):
"..POTENTIALLY CATASTROPHIC HURRICANE MARIA EXPECTED TO PASS NEAR OR OVER THE U. S. VIRGIN ISLANDS TONIGHT AND OVER PUERTO RICO ON WEDNESDAY... ...PREPARATIONS AGAINST LIFE-THREATENING STORM SURGE AND RAINFALL FLOODING AND DESTRUCTIVE WINDS SHOULD BE RUSHED TO COMPLETION...
#HurricaneMaria is centered as of 5 p.m. AST about 80 miles (130 km) southeast of St. Croix and about 175 miles (285 km) southeast of San Juan, Puerto Rico. Maria is moving toward the west-northwest near 10 mph (17 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue through Wednesday night. On the forecast track, the eye of Maria will move near or over the U. S. Virgin Islands tonight, cross Puerto Rico on Wednesday, and then pass just north of the coast of the Dominican Republic Wednesday night and Thursday.
Reports from an Air Force Reserve #HurricaneHunter aircraft indicate that maximum sustained winds are near 165 mph (270 km/h) with higher gusts. Maria is a potentially catastrophic Category 5 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Some fluctuations in intensity are likely during the next day or so, but Maria is forecast to remain an extremely dangerous category 4 or 5 hurricane as it moves near or over the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Slow weakening is expected after the hurricane emerges over the Atlantic north of Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic..."

The NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer, @noaaoceanexploration, is on the last leg of NOAA’s three-year mission to explore the deep #Pacific Ocean in the Musicians Seamounts and the Hawaiian Islands.

You, too, can join the expedition virtually by following the live video streamed by a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) diving down to the seafloor near Musicians Seamounts. Dives will continue through September 29, usually between 2:00 p.m.–12:00 a.m. Eastern, depending on weather and ocean conditions. * Livestreaming video is at: http://1.usa.gov/28PgbKB

As the #Okeanos sets out on its final research leg of this mission, we invite you to take a photo and video journey through the 10 greatest sightings – to date – made during NOAA’s #CAPSTONE mission, a multiyear effort to collect baseline information to support science and management decisions in and around U.S. marine protected areas in the central and western Pacific. See our photo story at: http://bit.ly/2vZi3Lo

ABOUT THIS PHOTO: This pelagic #holothurian, or deep-sea swimming cucumber, which is unusual in appearance when compared with other sea cucumbers because of its resemblance to a jellyfish, was seen at a depth of ~1,400 meters (4,595 feet) during @noaaoceanexploration's expedition, Mountains in the Deep: Exploring the Central Pacific Basin in May 2017.

Power outages from #Hurricane #Irma, as seen from space:
The NOAA-NASA Suomi NPP #satellite captured images of #Florida before and after Irma that show the impact of power outages in Florida. This combined graphic shows Florida on May 11, 2017 (left) and then on Sept. 12, 2017 (right). Irma first made landfall in Florida, in the Florida Keys, on Sept. 10, 2017.

The Suomi NPP satellite is NOAA’s primary polar-orbiting spacecraft and provides critical observations to support NOAA’s three to seven-day operational weather forecasts, operational weather “nowcasting” in Alaska and polar regions, and environmental monitoring and prediction.

Rewind the past 72 hours of weather with this 3-day composite water vapor imagery from NOAA's GOES satellites​.​ Of particular note in this loop, which begins the morning of September 9 and ends today September 12, are the areas of atmospheric water vapor associated with Hurricane #Irma (now a post-tropical cyclone). Also visible toward the end of this loop is the moisture associated with Hurricane Jose (seen in the bottom right of the loop), the center of which is about 435 miles north-northeast of Grand Turk Island and moving east. For the latest forecast information about the remnants of ​Irma, visit the website at www.weather.gov. ​For the latest information on Hurricane Jose, go to www​.hurricanes.gov. ​The brightly colored areas indicate the presence of high water vapor (moisture) content, whereas the white areas indicate the presence of both high moisture content and/or ice crystals. The orange-ish brown and black areas indicate little or no moisture present. ​​To see more ​#​GOES composite imagery, go to goo.gl/eEwncX. To see a gallery of Irma animations, go to goo.gl/vgGLMF.

Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone dealing with the impacts of Irma.​ #Science #nature #space #satellites #tropicalcyclone #hurricanes #noaa @NWS @NOAASatellites #GOES16

This green #sponge, the size of a golf ball and discovered in the deepest, darkest ocean areas off #Alaska, shows promise in developing new treatments for pancreatic cancer, according to biomedical researchers.

Teams at the Medical University of South Carolina and Henry Ford Cancer Center in Detroit — who specialize in studying chemical samples from the ocean ecosystem — studied a sample of green sponge (Latrunculia austini) discovered by #NOAA scientist Bob Stone during a fisheries survey in 2005. Upon examination, the cancer researchers uncovered molecular compounds effective at selectively targeting and killing tumor cells.
