Remnants of ex-Tropical Storm Linda spreading inland

14.09.2015

NOAA's GOES-West satellite saw the remnants of former Tropical Storm Linda begin to spread inland over the northern Baja Peninsula of Mexico, and they are expected to affect the southwestern U.S. over the next couple of days.

An image of the remnants of Tropical Storm Linda was taken from NOAA's GOES-West satellite on Sept. 11 at 10:15 a.m. EDT and showed the eastern side its associated clouds over the northern Baja peninsula.

The last advisory issued on Linda from the National Hurricane Center came on September 10 at 2100 UTC (5 p.m. EDT). At that time, Post-tropical cyclone Linda was located near 26.0 North and 118.6 West, about 260 nautical miles west-southwest of Punta Eugenia, Mexico and moving northwest at 6 knots. Maximum sustained winds were near 40 knots at the time. The NHC noted that Linda had ceased to qualify as a tropical cyclone.

By September 11 at 1005 UTC (7:05 a.m. EDT), Linda's remnants were centered near

26.5 North latitude and 119.5 West longitude. Winds of 20 to 30 knots were still occurring up to 150 nautical miles northeast of the center and out to 90 nautical miles southwest of the center.

The National Hurricane Center noted that moisture associated with the remnant low of Linda is spreading northward into northern Baja California and portions of the southwestern U.S., which could trigger some shower and thunderstorm activity.

In addition to the showers the Linda can bring inland, ocean swells are still affecting the Baja California peninsula, and continue to propagate toward the U.S. southern California coastline. These swells will result in an increased risk of rip currents and dangerous high surf through at least through September 11.

NHC noted that the low will continue to gradually spin down during the next few days with winds diminishing to 20 knots or less and seas subsiding to less than 8 feet by Saturday morning, September 12.

Im Focus: A Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
