NASA's IMERG product was used to calculate the amount of rainfall generated by Ex-tropical Cyclone 03S. By January 30, the former tropical cyclone was a remnant low pressure area in the Southern Indian Ocean.
Integrated Multi-satellitE Retrievals for GPM (IMERG) data were used to show rainfall that fell near tropical cyclone 03S.
The highest rainfall totals were found by IMERG as the parent low pressure center moved over northwestern Australia during the period from January 24 to 26, 2017.
GPM is the Global Precipitation Measurement mission core satellite. GPM is a joint mission between NASA and the Japanese space agency JAXA.
Tropical cyclone 03S formed from the low only after moving into the warm waters of the Indian Ocean on January 27, 2017.
IMERG data were used to analyze rainfall that occurred near the parent low and tropical cyclone 03S' centers of circulation. Rainfall totals of close to 300 mm (11.8 inches) were estimated along Australia's northwest coast.

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
