Warnings were in effect in India for northern Andhra Pradesh and southern Odisha as Lehar approaches. Lehar will bring winds, heavy rainfall and storm surge to those Indian states today, and tomorrow. A storm surge of up to 3 meters is possible.
The MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured this visible image of Tropical Cyclone Lehar nearing the coast of central India on Nov. 27 at 0715 UTC.

The MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured a visible image of Tropical Cyclone Lehar nearing the coast of central India on Nov. 27 at 0715 UTC/2:15 a.m. EST. The MODIS image showed bands of thunderstorms extending from the northern and southern quadrants of the storm, wrapping into the center. There was no visible eye, despite Lehar being at minimal hurricane-strength.
At 1500 UTC/10 a.m. EST on November 27, Lehar's maximum sustained winds were near 55 knots/63.2 mph/101.9 kph. Tropical-storm-force winds extended out 105 nautical miles/120.8 miles/194.5 km from the center of circulation, and the center was about 195 nautical miles southeast of Visakhapatnam, India. That puts the center near 15.1 north and 84.2 east. Lehar is generating high and rough seas with wave heights to 24 feet/7.3 meters as it moves to the west-northwest at 12 knots/13.8 mph/22.2 kph.
The Joint Typhoon Warning Center expects Lehar to strengthen a little more before making landfall in eastern India on November 27 at 0700 UTC/2 a.m. EST. By November 28 Lehar is expected to dissipate.Text credit: Rob Gutro

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
