Tomas is now a remnant low pressure area is located in the Atlantic near 26 North and 68 West hundreds of miles south-southwest of Bermuda and has a minimum central pressure of 994 millibars today, Nov. 8. A cold front off the U.S. East Coast however, is stalking Tomas' remnants and moving east threatening to swallow the former hurricane.
The GOES-13 satellite captured an image of the cold front stalking Tomas\' remnants in the Atlantic Ocean on Nov. 8 at 1345 UTC (8:45 a.m. EST). The cold front is the line of clouds east of the US East coast that looks like a question mark. Tomas\' remnants are the tight swirl of clouds at the bottom of that line of clouds (near Bermuda).

The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite known as GOES-13 captures visible images of the eastern half of the U.S. and Atlantic Ocean basin during daylight hours and infrared images during night-time hours. Two GOES satellites cover the U.S., one the western half of the country, and the other, GOES-13, the eastern half of the country. GOES satellites are operated by NOAA, and the NASA GOES Project at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. creates images and animations using the satellite data.
GOES-13 captured an image of the cold front stalking Tomas' remnants in the Atlantic Ocean on Nov. 8 at 1345 UTC (8:45 a.m. EST). The cold front appears on the satellite imagery as a line of clouds east of the U.S. East coast that looks like a question mark. Tomas' remnants appear as a tight swirl of clouds at the bottom of that line of clouds near Bermuda.
By 6 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Nov. 7, Tomas had lost its tropical characteristics and its warm core. Tomas had more resembled a frontal system with cold air stratocumulus clouds wrapping into its center. At that time, Tomas was about 500 miles south-southwest of Bermuda near 26.1 North and 69.1 West. It still had maximum sustained winds of 60 mph, and more resembled a nor'easter meteorologically speaking. It was moving north-northeast near 3 mph and had a minimum central pressure of 997 millibars at that time. When Tomas was at that location, the National Hurricane Center issued their last advisory on the system.
Tomas' remnant low pressure area has become a "post-tropical cyclone" and is forecast to continue moving northeast and east-northeastward until it is absorbed by a frontal system.
That cold front is currently located to the west of Tomas near 32 degrees North latitude and 66 degrees West longitude. It is expected to continue moving east and absorb Tomas' remnants in the next day or two.

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Water molecules exist in two different forms with almost identical physical properties. For the first time, researchers have succeeded in separating the two forms to show that they can exhibit different chemical reactivities. These results were reported by researchers from the University of Basel and their colleagues in Hamburg in the scientific journal Nature Communications.
From a chemical perspective, water is a molecule in which a single oxygen atom is linked to two hydrogen atoms. It is less well known that water exists in two...
