Tropical Depression 8E's remnants still hug Mexican coastline

02.09.2011
An infrared satellite look at Tropical Depression 8E along the Mexican coast shows that the storm became more disorganized in the last 24 hours, and is now a remnant low pressure area.

Tropical Depression 08E (TD8E) has weakened to a remnant low pressure system over Mexico. TD 8E's remnants were raining on Manzanillo and Puerto Vallarta at 10 a.m. EDT (7 a.m. PDT) today and the bulk of the heavier rainfall was off-shore.

A NOAA GOES-11 satellite image from Sept. 1 at 9:45 a.m. EDT showed the remnant clouds of Tropical Depression 8E as a rounded swirl of clouds hugging Mexico's southwestern coastline. There were some higher, stronger thunderstorms visible in the infrared image that appeared whiter and brighter than the surrounding clouds. Those higher clouds were around the center of TD8E's circulation. The GOES-11 image was created by the NASA GOES Project at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) issued their last warning for the remnants of TD8E at 11 p.m. EDT on August 31. At that time, it was about 130 miles (209 km) east-southeast of Cabo Corrientes, Mexico near 19.8 North and 103.8 West. Its maximum sustained winds were down to 20 knots (23 mph/37 kmh) and it was moving to the northwest at 10 knots (12 mph/19 kmh).

On the morning of Sept. 1, 2011, TD8E's remnants were still raining on the southwestern coast of Mexico. As much as 4 to 6 inches (10-15cm) of rain are expected over the coastal areas of the states of Guerrero, Michoacan and Colima.

The NHC noted that there's a low chance, just 10 percent, that TD8E will regenerate.

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
