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: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
