NASA sees Tropical Storm Linfa exiting northern Philippines

07.07.2015

Tropical Storm Linfa moved over Luzon in the northern Philippines over July 4 and by early July 5, NASA's Aqua satellite saw the storm moving into the South China Sea.

On July 5 at 05:25 UTC (1:25 a.m. EDT) the MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured a visible image or Tropical Storm Linfa moving into the South China Sea.

The storm appeared to be somewhat elongated because of wind shear and had weakened as a result of moving over land. MODIS imagery also showed an isolated area of deep convection, thunderstorms and clouds, pushed over the southwest quadrant of the low-level center, as a result of northeasterly wind shear.

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center noted that animated multispectral satellite imagery showed that the low-level center of circulation is exposed to outside winds.

Tropical Storm Linfa was about 295 nautical miles (339 miles/1,639 km) north-northwest of Manila, Philippines. It was centered near 19.2 North latitude and 119.2 East longitude. Tropical Storm Linfa has maximum sustained winds near 45 knots (51.7 mph/83.3 kph). It was moving to the north at 5 knots (5.7 mph/9.6 kph).

As Linfa continues to exit the northern Philippines, some warnings remained in effect for July 5. Public storm warning signal #2 remained in effect in the Luzon provinces of Batanes, Cagayan including Calayan and Babuyan group of Islands, Apayao, Kalinga, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur and Abra. In addition Public storm warning signal #1 remained in effect in the Luzon provinces of Pangasinan, Isabela, Benguet, La Union, Mt. Province and Ifugao.

Linfa is moving north and is forecast to then curve northwest and move between Taiwan and mainland China by July 9. The Joint Typhoon Warning Center expects Linfa to strengthen a little before wind shear brings about its dissipation in the Taiwan Strait sometime around July 10.

Im Focus: Attoseconds break into atomic interior

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.

In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...

Im Focus: Good vibrations feel the force

A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.

By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
