Tembin moved through the Myeongnyang Strait and made landfall on Aug. 30, 2012 at 0000 UTC (Aug. 29 at 8 p.m. EDT) in the southwestern tip of South Korea.
NASA's Aqua satellite's MODIS instrument captured this visible, true-color image of Tropical Storm Tembin at the time of landfall in southwestern South Korea. The image was captured at 04:45 UTC (12:45 a.m. EDT) on Aug. 30.

NASA's Aqua satellite's Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument captured a visible, true-color image of Tropical Storm Tembin around the time of landfall in southwestern South Korea. The image was captured at 04:45 UTC (12:45 a.m. EDT) on Aug. 30, and showed an elongated storm stretching from southwestern South Korea, over North Korea and into the Sea of Japan. Southwesterly wind shear has also taken its toll on Tembin as the storm has become elongated. When a storm is no longer circular, it loses its energy.
Satellite imagery also revealed that central convection (rising air that forms thunderstorms that make up Tembin) have been decaying rapidly.
On Aug. 30 at 0300 UTC (Aug. 29 at 11 p.m. EDT) Tropical Storm Tembin's maximum sustained winds were near 35 knots (40 mph/65 kmh). It was located about 85 nautical miles (97.8 miles/157.4 km) south of Kunsan Air Base, South Korea, near 35.5 North and 127.2 East. Tembin is moving to the north-northeast at 23 knots (26.4 mph/42.6 kmh) and forecasters at the Joint Typhoon Warning Center expect the storm to continue accelerating and drag across the rugged Taebaek Mountain Range, further weakening it.
Tembin is then is expected to briefly enter the Sea of Japan as an extra-tropical low pressure area and dissipate thereafter.Text Credit: Rob Gutro

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.
Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...
A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.
The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...
At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
