Why don’t you see people-sized salmon anymore? | NPR
While the orcas of Puget Sound are sliding toward extinction, orcas farther north have been expanding their numbers. Their burgeoning hunger for big fish may be causing the killer whales’ main prey, chinook salmon, to shrink up and down the West Coast. Jan Ohlberger, a research scientist of aquatic and fishery sciences at the UW, is quoted. [This story originally appeared on KUOW and was syndicated nationally across NPR]

But would you know graupel if it pelted you on a cold winter's day? A 1966 study from UW's atmospheric sciences department is referenced.
