Rockweed is a brown algae found on rocky shores. The most common types of rockweed are within the genus Ascophyllum spp. and Fucus spp. (the latter is shown to the left). They grow slowly and can live from 3 to 15 years before breakage. Rockweeds have fronds that bear air bladders. These 'airbags' help the algae to stand up straight under water. Rockweed lacks true roots, stems, and leaves, and because they lack a vascular system, absorb dissolved nutrients directly through the blades. Rockweed attaches to rocks with a disc-like “holdfast”, and regenerate fronds from remaining holdfasts after a natural disturbance that removes upright fronds. [show more]

Measles is an air-born infection caused by a paramyxovirus, mostly common in early childhood. In the present day, measles is considered an extinct disease in most parts of the world. According to WHO, in 1980, before widespread vaccination, measles caused an estimated 2.6 million deaths each year. However, in the recent years, the once eradicated disease started resurfacing in countries like New Zealand, Australia, and United States (CDC). It is one of the leading causes of death among young children even though a safe and cost-effective vaccine is available (WHO). [show more]

The firestorm that erupted in San Diego County in the fall of 2007 devastated the area. This firestorm is considered to be the second most destructive fire in the history of the county, just after the Cedar Fire of 2003. High heat, low humidity, Santa Ana winds with gusts up to 100 mph, and other conditions provided optimal conditions for the wildfires to thrive.

An estimated 73 million sharks were killed last year, primarily for their fins. Their populations are at critical levels, and they are still being fished out of the oceans at unsustainable rates. Some regional populations of shark species are down to 95 - 99%, which is considered functional extinction.

According to the University of Hawaii’s Honolulu Climate Change Commission, Oahu is the most at risk from sea-level rise compared to all other Hawaiian islands. By the middle of the century, a report assembled by the commission warned that regular high tide flooding with 3.2ft of local sea-level rise would put 18 miles of coastal road and 4000 settlements at risk (Westfall, 2018).
