NASA, NOAA satellites help confirm Tropical Storm Fausto as a remnant low

10.07.2014

NOAA's GOES-West and NASA-JAXA's Global Precipitation Measurement or GPM mission satellite helped forecasters at the National Hurricane Center determine that what was once Tropical Storm Fausto is now a remnant area of low pressure in the Eastern Pacific Ocean.

Forecaster Beven at the National Hurricane Center (NHC) noted that "satellite imagery, overnight scatterometer data, and a recent GPM satellite microwave overpass indicate that Fausto has degenerated to a trough of low pressure."


On July 9 at 1500 UTC (11 a.m. EDT) Fausto's circulation was no longer apparent on visible imagery from NOAA's GOES-West satellite and System 98E was located to the east of Fausto.

On July 9 at 1500 UTC (11 a.m. EDT) Fausto's circulation was no longer apparent on visible imagery from NOAA's GOES-West satellite.

The image showed the developing low pressure area known as System 98E, located to the east of Fausto, was slightly more organized today. The GOES-West image was created at NASA/NOAA's GOES Project at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.

The National Hurricane Center issued the final advisory on Fausto at the time of the GOES-West image. At that time, Fausto's remnants were located near 11.7 north latitude and 129.5 west longitude, about 1,505 miles (2,420 km) west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California.

The maximum sustained winds were near 30 mph (45 kph) and weakening. The NHC expects winds associated with the remnants of Fausto should decrease during the next couple of days. The estimated minimum central pressure was 1007 millibars.

The remnants were moving west-northwest near 17 mph (28 kph) and are expected to continue in a general west-northwestward motion for the next several days. Over that time, they will move through an area of increasing vertical wind shear and mid-level dry air which will help them dissipate.

System 98E is located to the east of Fausto's remnants. The broad low pressure area is generating showers. It is located several hundred miles southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula and has become better organized today.

NHC noted that additional slow development is possible during the next day or so before upper-level winds become less friendly for development.

Im Focus: A Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
