NASA Satellite Spots Hudhud's Remnants

15.10.2014

Cyclone Hudhud made landfall in east-central India on Oct. 12 and caused a lot of damage and several fatalities as it moved inland and weakened to a remnant low pressure area. NASA saw those remnants on Oct. 14.

When NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Indochina, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument provided picture proof that the remnants of Typhoon Hudhud were still over India, Nepal, and China. Aqua passed over the region on Oct. 14 at 08:05 UTC (4:05 a.m. EDT).

Infrared satellite imagery and multispectral satellite imagery indicated that Hudhud made landfall near Visakhapatnam at about 0700 UTC (3 a.m. EDT) Oct. 12. At 11 a.m. EDT, Hudhud was inland and centered near 18.4 north and 82.5 east, about 30 nautical miles west-northwest of Visakhapatnam, Hudhud was moving northwestward at 8 knots and maximum sustained winds were still near 105 knots, making it hurricane-force over land.

Hudhud's hurricane-force winds destroyed the Cyclone Warning Centre. According to Chief Minister N. ChandrababuNaidu, Visakhapatnam and the neighboring districts of Vizianagaram and Srikakulam reported many damages from the storm and some reports indicated over 20 deaths.   

Hudhud's remnants are expected to dissipate over land.

Im Focus: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...

Im Focus: Basel researchers succeed in cultivating cartilage from stem cells

Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.

Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
