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: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
