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: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
