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: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

So-called pre-distorted states accelerate photochemical reactions too

What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...

Im Focus: The first precise measurement of a single molecule's effective charge

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.

Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...

Im Focus: Paradigm shift in Paris: Encouraging an holistic view of laser machining

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.

No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...

Im Focus: Room-temperature multiferroic thin films and their properties

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.

Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
