Hubert's remnants still raining on southern Madagascar

12.03.2010
Hubert may not be a tropical storm now that it has made landfall in southeastern Madagascar, but it's still a formidable and large storm system. NASA's Aqua satellite revealed that there are still some very high, strong thunderstorms in Hubert's remnants as it continues to bring rains and gusty winds to southeast and south-central Madagascar.

NASA's Aqua infrared satellite imagery from the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument confirmed that some deep convection (rapidly rising air that creates the thunderstorms that power tropical cyclones) is still occurring in the storm, even though the center is over land.

The infrared image of Hubert captured on March 11 at 1053 UTC (5:53 a.m. ET) and showed some high, cold thunderstorms around the center of the storm, and that the eastern edge of Hubert was still over the Southern Indian Ocean. Hubert is expected to continue moving inland and grow weaker.

At 1 p.m. ET, March 11, heavier rains stretched from the city of Vavtenina southward through the cities of Mahanoro, Nosy Varika, Mananjary and Fianarantsoa. Most of the heaviest rains remained to the east and south of the capital city of Antananarivo.

Residents in southern and central Madagascar can continue to expect some moderate to heavy rainfall from this system over the next couple of days.

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

Im Focus: Research icebreaker Polarstern begins the Antarctic season

What does it look like below the ice shelf of the calved massive iceberg A68?

On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...

Im Focus: Coping with errors in the quantum age

Physicists at ETH Zurich demonstrate how errors that occur during the manipulation of quantum system can be monitored and corrected on the fly

The field of quantum computation has seen tremendous progress in recent years. Bit by bit, quantum devices start to challenge conventional computers, at least...
