Danny the 'degenerate' followed by 2 lows


Danny has become a degenerate, that is, the tropical depression weakened. Satellite and Hurricane Hunter aircraft data showed that Danny degenerated into an elongated area of low pressure near the Windward Islands during the afternoon (local time) on August 24. Meanwhile two other developing low pressure areas lie to the east of Danny.

Satellite data from NOAA's GOES-East satellite at 14:45 UTC (10:45 a.m. EDT) on August 24, showed Danny had become stretched out into a trough of low pressure.

At 11 a.m. EDT (1500 UTC), the remnants of Danny were located near latitude 16.0 North and longitude 62.0 West.

The remnants are moving toward the west near 12 mph (19 kph), and this general motion is expected to continue for the next day or two. Maximum sustained winds have decreased near 30 mph (45 kph).

The National Hurricane Center said that the remnants of Danny are expected to produce 2 to 4inches of rain over the Leeward Islands, the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic through Tuesday night, August 25.

The trough is expected to dissipate during the next couple of days.

Shower and thunderstorm activity associated with low pressure system closest to Danny's remnants were located about 950 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.

That low pressure area appears ripe for development and the National Hurricane Center (NHC) noted that the system is likely to become a tropical depression or a tropical storm during the next day or so while it moves westward near 20 mph.

The second low pressure area is associated with a tropical wave far in the eastern Atlantic Ocean. That low is located near the Cape Verde Islands is accompanied by disorganized showers and thunderstorms.

However, the NHC noted that environmental conditions are not expected to be conducive for significant development of this system while it moves westward at 15 to 20 mph over the next few days.

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
