The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite called GOES-13 captured a visible image of System 92L on June 15 at 11:45 UTC (7:45 a.m. EDT). The GOES-13 visible image showed the low as a swirl of clouds far north of eastern Brazil and about 1,100 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. The showers and thunderstorms associated with the low have become limited this morning. System 92L continues moving west-northwestward at about 15 mph.
The National Hurricane Center noted that "Environmental conditions are expected to become less favorable for tropical cyclone formation during the next day or so." Therefore, the potential for development has decreased and the chances for development into a tropical cyclone in the next 48 hours have dropped from 50 percent yesterday to 30 percent today.
GOES-13 was launched by NASA and is now operated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). NASA's GOES Project at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. created the latest satellite image that shows System 92L in its weakening state.
Meanwhile, in the Eastern Pacific Ocean, forecasters continue to watch two areas for potential tropical cyclone development.
The first area is a low pressure area that has been nearly stationary about 350 miles west-southwest of Acapulco, Mexico. Because environmental conditions are expected to continue to allow for slow development (warm sea surface temperatures and light vertical wind shear), there's still a 30 percent chance this low could develop into a tropical cyclone in the next 48 hours.
The second area has an equally low chance of developing into a tropical cyclone in the next 48 hours. It's a broad area of low pressure near the Gulf of Tehuantepec that continues to produce widespread cloudiness and thunderstorms.

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.

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,...
