NASA Sees the End of Tropical Depression Genevieve

12.08.2014

Cloud tops were warming and precipitation was waning in Tropical Depression Genevieve when NASA's Aqua satellite flew overhead.

Genevieve moved through all three Pacific Ocean regions (eastern, central and western) in its two week lifetime and met its end today.

NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Tropical Depression Genevieve on Aug. 11 at 01:29 UTC and the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) captured infrared data on the storm.

AIRS data showed a small area of the strongest thunderstorms were occurring over the northern quadrant, where temperatures approached -63F/-52C. That area was where where the heaviest rain was located.

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center issued its final bulletin on Tropical depression Genevieve on Monday at 2100 UTC (4 p.m. EDT). At that time, Genevieve was located near 34.9 north and 167.6 east, that's about 940 nautical miles north of Wake Island.

It was moving to the northwest at 8 knots (9.2 mph/14.8 kph) and maximum sustained winds had dropped to 25 knots (28.7 mph/46.3 kph).

Genevieve was born in the Eastern Pacific, moved through the Central Pacific and into the Western Pacific where it finally became a typhoon, actually a super-typhoon.

Genevieve made that Pacific Ocean trek over a period of two weeks and its journey has ended in the Northwestern Pacific Ocean as the storm dissipated on August 12.

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...
