NASA sees Tropical Depression Meari about to cross North Vietnam

28.06.2011
The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite passed over Tropical Depression Meari as it neared a landfall in southwestern North Korea on June 26. TRMM did not observe any heavy rainfall, but did see moderate rainfall with the system.

TRMM captured an image of the rainfall in Tropical Depression Meari on June 26 at 1210 UTC (8:10 a.m. EDT). Most of the rainfall was light to moderate in the system, with the heaviest rain near the center of circulation falling at a rate between .78 to 1.57 inches (20 and 40 mm) per hour.

Satellite imagery showed that Meari had become more elongated (because of wind shear) which indicates that the storm is weakening. Between the elongation of the system and the weak convection (lighter rainfall), Meari has lost much of its energy.

On June 27 at 0000 UTC (June 26 at 8 p.m. EDT), the Joint Typhoon Warning Center issued their last advisory on the system. At that time it was about 115 nautical miles west- Northwest of Seoul, South Korea, near 38.3 North latitude and 124.7 East longitude. It was moving to the northeast at 11 knots (13 mph/20 kmh).

The increased wind shear and cooler sea surface temperatures where Meari is now located have taken the steam out of the system. It is expected to fall apart as it crosses over the rough landscape of the Hamgyeong Mountain Range. The remnants of this system may track through North Korea and enter the Sea of Japan. It will be watched for possible regeneration at that time.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
