New satellite movie chases post-Tropical Storm Alberto in Atlantic

24.05.2012
On May 23, 2012, the remnants of post-tropical storm Alberto were chasing a frontal system over the Atlantic Ocean, several hundred miles east of the U.S. East coast. A new NASA animation of imagery from NOAA's GOES-15 satellite shows the progression of Alberto's remnants.

The last advisory on Alberto from the National Hurricane Center was posted on May 22, at 11 a.m. EDT. At that time, Alberto was a post-tropical storm with maximum sustained winds near 35 mph (55 kph).

It was centered about 295 miles (470 km) south-southeast of Norfolk, Virginia near 33.1 North and 74.0 West and moving quickly to the northeast at 17 mph (28 kph).

This movie was created using GOES-15 satellite imagery gathered from May 21 to May 23 at 1745 UTC (1:45 p.m. EDT). In the animation, Alberto is first seen off the coast of South Carolina. As the animation progresses, the storm moves northeast toward a large cold front off the coast of the eastern U.S. By May 22 around 1845 UTC, Alberto's remnants appear to begin interacting with the frontal system as both push northeast.

By May 23 at 1731 UTC (1:31 p.m. EDT), the weak remaining circulation associated with Alberto is still slightly west of the frontal system. The National Hurricane Center noted that Alberto's remnants are expected to dissipate by sometime on May 25.

GOES-15 is operated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The animation was created by NASA's GOES Project, located at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
