Oregon offshore wind energy project announced (Denver Post)

Instead, companies need to use devices supported on floating platforms. (see also ABC News, MSN MoneyScience Daily)

Mid-valley gears up for snow storm (Gazette-Times)

Kathie Dello, deputy director of the Oregon Climate Service at Oregon State University, said this week’s storm, potent as it could be,  won’t be a “drought-buster.” Some snow will fall up in the mountains, but “It’s not the feet we are looking for,” Dello said.

“It was a surprise, because the genetic sequences from the meat didn’t match any of the known species,” says Scott Baker, a cetacean geneticist now at Oregon State University’s Marine Mammal Institute in Newport, and one of the authors of the study. “We thought we had a new species.”

Two grazing studies yield opposite conclusions (Capital Press)

Whales and human-related activities overlap in African waters (Newswise)

Scientists with the Wildlife Conservation Society, Oregon State University, Stanford University, Columbia University, and the American Museum of Natural History have found that humpback whales swimming off the coast of western Africa encounter more than warm waters for mating and bearing young; new studies show that the whales share these waters with offshore oil rigs, major shipping routes, and potentially harmful toxicants.
