NASA Sees Ex-Tropical Depression 30W Trying to Re-form in Indian Ocean

13.11.2013
Tropical Depression 30W formed in the northwestern Pacific Ocean basin and crossed into the Northern Indian Ocean from Nov. 8 to Nov. 10. By Nov. 12, NASA satellite imagery saw the ex-tropical depression coming back together.

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Terra satellite captured an image of ex-tropical depression 30W on Nov. 12 at 04:55 UTC when it was about 440 nautical miles/506 miles/ 814.9 km east-southeast of Chennai India.



30W is a large low-level center with strong bands of thunderstorms wrapped around the northern quadrant of the storm. However, dry air is now wrapping around the western quadrants.

Forecasters at the Joint Typhoon Warning Center noted that animated infrared satellite imagery showed that strong convection and weak convective banding of thunderstorms are wrapping into a defined low-level circulation center.

On Nov. 12, ex-depression 30W was centered near 11.4 north and 85.9 east, approximately 350 nautical miles/402.8 miles/648.2 km east-southeast of Chennai, India.

30W is expected to move slowly to the west. Maximum sustained surface winds are estimated at 20 to 25 knots/23 to 28.7 mph/37 to 46.3 kph. The Joint Typhoon Warning Center gives 30W a medium chance for re-generation in the next couple of days.

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...

Im Focus: Autonomous 3D scanner supports individual manufacturing processes

Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).

Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
