Tapah downgrades to a depression

02.05.2014

Tapah was downgraded from a tropical storm to a tropical depression and is located 239 nautical miles southeast of Iwo To.

Tapah rapidly dissipated due to the effected of strong vertical windshear from the west and a sharp decreased in sea surface temperature.


Aqua captured this image of the tropical depression Tapah on April 29, 2014, at 11:55 p.m. EDT (3:55 UTC) in the western Pacific Ocean.

The storm is currently tracking northwest at 10 knots per hour and is expected to recurve to the northeast and accelerate.

Maximum wave height is currently 10 feet. The storm will be monitored for signs of regeneration.

NASA captured this image of the storm with the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite on April 29, 2014 at 11:55 p.m. EDT (3:55 UTC) in the western Pacific Ocean.

Im Focus: Advances in Molecular Electronics: Lights On – Molecule On

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) and the University of Konstanz are working on storing and processing information on the level of single molecules to create the smallest possible components that will combine autonomously to form a circuit. As recently reported in the academic journal Advanced Science, the researchers can switch on the current flow through a single molecule for the first time with the help of light.

Dr. Artur Erbe, physicist at the HZDR, is convinced that in the future molecular electronics will open the door for novel and increasingly smaller – while also...

Im Focus: Pruning of Blood Vessels: Cells Can Fuse With Themselves

Cells of the vascular system of vertebrates can fuse with themselves. This process, which occurs when a blood vessel is no longer necessary and pruned, has now been described on the cellular level by Prof. Markus Affolter from the Biozentrum of the University of Basel. The findings of this study have been published in the journal “PLoS Biology”.

The vascular system is the supply network of the human organism and delivers oxygen and nutrients to the last corners of the body. So far, research on the...

Im Focus: A “pin ball machine” for atoms and photons

A team of physicists from MPQ, Caltech, and ICFO proposes the combination of nano-photonics with ultracold atoms for simulating quantum many-body systems and creating new states of matter.

Ultracold atoms in the so-called optical lattices, that are generated by crosswise superposition of laser beams, have been proven to be one of the most...

Im Focus: UV light robot to clean hospital rooms could help stop spread of 'superbugs'

Can a robot clean a hospital room just as well as a person?

According to new research out of the Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine, that is indeed the case. Chetan Jinadatha, M.D., M.P.H., assistant...
