Satellite Panorama of Fizzling Juliette and Two Lows in Eastern Pacific

02.09.2013
Tropical Depression Juliette became post-tropical and two low pressure areas were struggling to develop in the Eastern Pacific Ocean on Aug. 30 when NOAA's GOES-West captured a beautiful panoramic image of all three systems.

NOAA's GOES-West satellite sits in a fixed orbit that covers the western U.S. and the Pacific Ocean, providing imagery on a continual basis. NASA's GOES Project at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. created a panoramic image of the Pacific that showed the weakening post-tropical cyclone Juliette and two low pressure areas on Aug. 30 at 1200 UTC/8 a.m. EDT.


On Aug. 30, NOAA's GOES-West satellite captured the fizzling post-tropical cyclone Juliette near the Mexican coast, and two other low pressure areas that are struggling to develop.

The National Hurricane Center issued their final warning on post-tropical cyclone Juliette on Aug. 30 at 0300 UTC/Aug. 29 at 11 p.m. EDT. At that time, Juliette was located near 26.7 north and 114.8 west, about 80 miles south-southeast of Punta Eugenia, Mexico. Juliette was moving to the northwest at 12 knots. Its maximum sustained winds were down to 25 knots. Although Juliette no longer qualifies as a tropical cyclone, its remnants will be producing showers over Baja California today.

One of the two developing low pressure areas in the Eastern Pacific sits about 525 miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. The low is disorganized by has some showers associated with it. It is moving north at 10 to 15 mph toward cooler waters, which is expected to inhibit any development. The low has just a 20 percent chance of becoming a tropical depression today and over the next five days, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The second low pressure area isn't faring any better in the development category. This low is located 1,000 miles away from the first area. It is centered about 1,550 miles west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California and is moving northeastward. This low has a 10 percent chance of development into a tropical depression in the next two days.

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

Im Focus: How to inflate a hardened concrete shell with a weight of 80 t

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...

Im Focus: Bacterial Pac Man molecule snaps at sugar

Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.

The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...
