Ana's Remnants Raining and Gusting in British Columbia, Canada

29.10.2014

NOAA's GOES-West satellite captured an image of post-tropical cyclone Ana's remnant clouds raining on British Columbia, Canada today, Oct. 28.

Wind warnings along some coastal sections of British Columbia continued today as the storm moved through the region.

NOAA's GOES-West satellite gathered infrared data on Ana's remnant clouds and that data was made into an image by NASA/NOAA's GOES Project at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. In the image the remnant clouds resemble a frontal system.

Environment Canada's Meteorological Service continued wind warnings for British Columbia's Central coast, East Vancouver Island, North Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast The warning noted strong winds may cause damage. Strong southeast winds of 56 mph (90 kph) over exposed coastal sections will continue during the morning of Oct. 28.

At 8 a.m. EDT on Oct. 28, Victoria Int'l Airport in Victoria, British Columbia reported light rain with sustained winds near 21 mph (34 kph) and gusts to 29 mph (47 kph). Vancouver International Airport reported light rain with sustained winds near 16 mph (26 kph) from the east.

The local forecast calls for skies to clear as the remnants of Ana to move east by Wednesday, Oct. 29.

Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. For updates, visit: http://weather.gc.ca.

Im Focus: Safe glide at total engine failure with ELA-inside

On January 15, 2009, Chesley B. Sullenberger was celebrated world-wide: after the two engines had failed due to bird strike, he and his flight crew succeeded after a glide flight with an Airbus A320 in ditching on the Hudson River. All 155 people on board were saved.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
