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: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...

Im Focus: Hydrogen Bonds Directly Detected for the First Time

For the first time, scientists have succeeded in studying the strength of hydrogen bonds in a single molecule using an atomic force microscope. Researchers from the University of Basel’s Swiss Nanoscience Institute network have reported the results in the journal Science Advances.

Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe and is an integral part of almost all organic compounds. Molecules and sections of macromolecules are...
