NOAA's GOES-East satellite captured imagery of the Atlantic Ocean's Tropical Depression 2 is it degenerated into a tropical wave on July 23.
At 1445 UTC (10:45 a.m. EDT), NOAA's GOES-East satellite captured an image of what was once Tropical Depression 2 (TD2), about 400 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.
The GOES-East visible satellite imagery indicated that the depression weakened since July 22. TD2 appeared as just a weak swirl of clouds with no strong thunderstorms or deep convection.
The GOES image was created by NASA/NOAA's GOES Project at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.
In addition, the NHC noted that low-level cloud motions showed no evidence of a closed surface circulation and declared TD2 a remnant low pressure area.
At 11 a.m. EDT (1500 UTC), the National Hurricane Center (NHC) issued their final advisory on TD2, and cited that it had degenerated into a tropical wave.
Despite that, the remnants of the depression are expected to move through the Lesser Antilles this evening (July 23) with some areas of gusty winds and showers, according to the NHC.
The last NHC advisory placed the center of the degenerated depression's center near 14.0 north latitude and 56.0 west longitude, about 365 miles (590 km) east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles.
It was moving quickly to the west at 25 mph (41 kph) and had maximum sustained winds near 35 mph (55 kph) what were quickly waning. TD2's minimum central pressure was near 1012 millibars.

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...
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...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.
Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
