NASA satellite reveals a depressed and disorganized Henri

12.10.2009
Depression happens to everyone, even tropical storms, and Henri is now tropically depressed. NASA satellite imagery has confirmed he's weakened to a tropical depression and he is further expected to degenerate into a remnant low pressure area.

At 11 a.m. EDT on October 8, Henri's maximum sustained winds were down to 35 mph and waning. The National Hurricane Center used NASA's QuikScat satellite wind date from 6:12 a.m. EDT this morning to confirm Henri's wind speed.


NASA\'s GOES Project created an image of Tropical Depression Henri (top right) using data from the GOES-12 satellite on Oct. 8 at 10:45 a.m. EDT. The image shows Henri as a disorganized area of clouds, located east of the Leeward Islands (the chain of islands left of Henri, running north to south).

His center was located 130 miles north-northeast of the northern Leeward Islands, near latitude 19.8 North and longitude 62.0 West. Tropical Depression Henri is moving toward the west near 13 mph and he's expected to slow down in the next day. Minimum central pressure is near 1010 millibars.

The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite known as GOES-12 covers the Atlantic Ocean, and is managed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). NASA's GOES Project, located at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md. creates some of the GOES satellite images. An image created on October 8 at 10:45 a.m. EDT showed Henri as a disorganized area of cloudiness, located east of the Leeward Islands.

While on his westward track, Henri is expected to produce between 1 and 2 inches of rainfall over the northern Leeward Islands and the Virgin Islands.

Henri is likely to degenerate into a remnant low later today because he's in an environment of battering winds. Henri will remain in an environment of strong southwesterly shear today, and later winds from the northeast will hammer away at him, further weakening his circulation.

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.
