NASA Sees a Weaker Tropical Storm Julio Far North of Hawaii

13.08.2014

Tropical Storm Julio continues to weaken as it moves through cooler waters of the Central Pacific Ocean.

NASA's Terra satellite passed over Julio and saw that the bulk of the clouds and precipitation were being pushed to the34 north of the center as the storm tracked far north of the Hawaiian Islands.

NASA's Terra satellite passed over Julio on August 11 at 21:25 UTC (5:25 p.m. EDT) and the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard took a visible picture of the storm.

The MODIS image revealed a circular center, but most of the clouds and showers associated with the storm were pushed north of the center. Drier air, located over the southern quadrant of the storm is sapping the development of thunderstorms.

Julio tracked far enough away from the Hawaiian Islands so that no watches or warnings were generated for the storm.

At 5 a.m. HST local time (1500 UTC/11 a.m. EDT) on August 12, the center of Tropical Storm Julio was located near latitude 28.6 north, longitude 157.1 west, about 505 miles (815 km) north of Honolulu Hawaii.

Julio was moving toward the northwest near 6 mph (9 kph) and NOAA's Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC) expects that motion to continue over the next day before the storm gradually turns north.

  Maximum sustained winds were near 65 mph (100 kph) and a slow weakening is forecast over the next two days.

The CPHC expects that cooler waters and increasing wind shear will weaken Julio into a depression by August 14.

Im Focus: Mapping electromagnetic waveforms

Munich Physicists have developed a novel electron microscope that can visualize electromagnetic fields oscillating at frequencies of billions of cycles per second.

Temporally varying electromagnetic fields are the driving force behind the whole of electronics. Their polarities can change at mind-bogglingly fast rates, and...

Im Focus: Continental tug-of-war - until the rope snaps

Breakup of continents with two speed: Continents initially stretch very slowly along the future splitting zone, but then move apart very quickly before the onset of rupture. The final speed can be up to 20 times faster than in the first, slow extension phase.phases

Present-day continents were shaped hundreds of millions of years ago as the supercontinent Pangaea broke apart. Derived from Pangaea’s main fragments Gondwana...

Im Focus: New protocol enables analysis of metabolic products from fixed tissues

Scientists at the Helmholtz Zentrum München have developed a new mass spectrometry imaging method which, for the first time, makes it possible to analyze hundreds of metabolites in fixed tissue samples. Their findings, published in the journal Nature Protocols, explain the new access to metabolic information, which will offer previously unexploited potential for tissue-based research and molecular diagnostics.

In biomedical research, working with tissue samples is indispensable because it permits insights into the biological reality of patients, for example, in...

Im Focus: Computer Simulation Renders Transient Chemical Structures Visible

Chemists at the University of Basel have succeeded in using computer simulations to elucidate transient structures in proteins. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, the researchers set out how computer simulations of details at the atomic level can be used to understand proteins’ modes of action.

Using computational chemistry, it is possible to characterize the motion of individual atoms of a molecule. Today, the latest simulation techniques allow...
