Satellite Shows Atlantic Tropical Depression Degenerate

24.07.2014

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.


TD2 appeared as just a weak swirl of clouds with no strong thunderstorms or deep convection.

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.

Im Focus: Thousands on one chip: New Method to study Proteins

Since the completion of the human genome an important goal has been to elucidate the function of the now known proteins: a new molecular method enables the investigation of the function for thousands of proteins in parallel. Applying this new method, an international team of researchers with leading participation of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) was able to identify hundreds of previously unknown interactions among proteins.

The human genome and those of most common crops have been decoded for many years. Soon it will be possible to sequence your personal genome for less than 1000...

Im Focus: 3-D printing produces cartilage from strands of bioink

Strands of cow cartilage substitute for ink in a 3D bioprinting process that may one day create cartilage patches for worn out joints, according to a team of engineers. "Our goal is to create tissue that can be used to replace large amounts of worn out tissue or design patches," said Ibrahim T. Ozbolat, associate professor of engineering science and mechanics. "Those who have osteoarthritis in their joints suffer a lot. We need a new alternative treatment for this."

Cartilage is a good tissue to target for scale-up bioprinting because it is made up of only one cell type and has no blood vessels within the tissue. It is...
