Why should we trust the new climate report? It is devastating to see another extreme flash flooding water gushing down slopes around Gunung Jerai catchment area affecting thousands of people in Kedah. Many started to blame deforestation as the leading cause, and some reserved their blame towards climate change. Twitter feeds start pouring comments, but several threads begin to attract attention.

A Tale of the Monsoon Riders from Terengganu The monsoon system helps our sea turtle to establish different populations in the South China Sea (SCS) for their survival. How baby turtle benefits from the monsoon? The SCS exhibit two types of monsoon; the Northeast and Southwest monsoon. Sea turtle hatchlings dispersal in the ocean are highly influenced by the monsoon season. The simulated hatchlings are distributed north into the Gulf of Thailand during the Southwest monsoon, while during the Northeast monsoon, the simulated hatchlings travel south into the Java Sea. A classic theory in sea turtles’ life cycle is the
INOS Has Officially Graduated as A National Higher Institution Centre of Excellence INOS is a pioneer centre of excellence (COE) in UMT. Established in May 2001, our main focus is conducting multi-disciplinary research in oceanography. The major objective behind the establishment of INOS is to achieve better understanding on the key scientific questions about the marine environment and its interaction with the earth systems through scientific research, oceanographic observations, data modelling and satellite studies. Moving towards gearing up research, development, and innovation (R&D&I) in Malaysia, the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) found the need to recognise exceptional CoEs in universities
