NASA Catches Short-lived Tropical Cyclone Hagibis Landfalling in China

17.06.2014

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center issued bulletins every 6 hours on Tropical Cyclone Hagibis and Hagibis only lived through 6 of those bulletins in its short lifetime in the northwestern Pacific Ocean. The final bulletin was issued on June 15 at 1500 UTC (11 a.m. EDT) after Hagibis made landfall in China.

Hagibis was born in the South China Sea on June 14 at 0900 UTC (5 a.m. EDT) near 20.7 north latitude and 117.0 east longitude, about 183 nautical miles east-southeast of Hong Kong when a low pressure system quickly consolidated and maximum sustained winds jumped to 35 knots (40 mph/62 kph).

Hagibis is the seventh tropical depression of the Northwestern Pacific Ocean hurricane season. By the morning hours of June 15 Hagibis' maximum sustained winds peaked at 40 knots (46 mph/74 kph) as it neared China's coast.

As Hagibis was making landfall, NASA's Terra satellite passed overhead in its orbit around the Earth. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard Terra captured an infrared image at 14:15 UTC (12:15 p.m. EDT) that showed the storm making landfall on the coast of Haojiang District of Shantou City in China's Guangdong Province.

By 1500 UTC (11 a.m. EDT) on June 15, Hagibis was centered near 23.5 north latitude and 116.5 east longitude, about 146 nautical miles (168 miles/270.4 km) east-northeast of Hong Kong. Hagibis made landfall with maximum sustained winds near 35 knots (40 mph/62 kph).

Hagibis brought heavy rainfall to the Fujian and Guangdong provinces. According to a report from Xinhuanet, Hagibis dropped as much as 302 mm (11.8 inches) of rain in Guangdong province. Later in day, Hagibis dissipated over mainland China.

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
