NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Khanun on July 18, 19 and 20 and tracked the northeastern progression of the tropical cyclone after it made landfall. On Wednesday, July 18 at 1659 UTC (12:59 p.m. EDT/U.S.), Tropical Depression Khanun's center was still in the Yellow Sea (west of South Korea).

At that time, the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument onboard NASA's Aqua satellite saw a band of thunderstorms with cloud top temperatures colder than 220 kelvin (-63.6 F/-53.1C) over western South Korea, bringing heavy rainfall. A larger area of thunderstorms with cloud top temperatures as cold as -63F/-53C were over western North Korea at that time, dropping moderate rainfall.
Tropical Depression Khanun came ashore in western South Korea, bringing heavy rainfall with it on Thursday, July 19 as it moved in a north-northeasterly direction toward North Korea and northeastern China. On July 19 at 0405 UTC (12:05 a.m. EDT/U.S.), the heaviest rainfall and strongest thunderstorms appeared to be over the Kangnam Mountains in northern North Korea that also border eastern China. The Kangnam Mountains lie west of the Rangrim Mountains.
Although the center of Khanun's remnants moved into the Sea of Japan, it was bringing some scattered showers and thunderstorms to a few areas in northeastern China on July 20. NASA's Aqua satellite passed over the region on July 20 at 0447 UTC (12:47 a.m. EDT) and showed some scattered showers moving east into Khabarovsk Krai, Russia, a federal subject of Russia. Khunan's remnants are expected to dissipate today.

DESY and MPSD scientists create high-order harmonics from solids with controlled polarization states, taking advantage of both crystal symmetry and attosecond electronic dynamics. The newly demonstrated technique might find intriguing applications in petahertz electronics and for spectroscopic studies of novel quantum materials.
The nonlinear process of high-order harmonic generation (HHG) in gases is one of the cornerstones of attosecond science (an attosecond is a billionth of a...
Nano- and microtechnology are promising candidates not only for medical applications such as drug delivery but also for the creation of little robots or flexible integrated sensors. Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) have created magnetic microparticles, with a newly developed method, that could pave the way for building micro-motors or guiding drugs in the human body to a target, like a tumor. The preparation of such structures as well as their remote-control can be regulated using magnetic fields and therefore can find application in an array of domains.
The magnetic properties of a material control how this material responds to the presence of a magnetic field. Iron oxide is the main component of rust but also...
Due to the special arrangement of its molecules, a new coating made of corn starch is able to repair small scratches by itself through heat: The cross-linking via ring-shaped molecules makes the material mobile, so that it compensates for the scratches and these disappear again.
Superficial micro-scratches on the car body or on other high-gloss surfaces are harmless, but annoying. Especially in the luxury segment such surfaces are...
The Potsdam Echelle Polarimetric and Spectroscopic Instrument (PEPSI) at the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) in Arizona released its first image of the surface magnetic field of another star. In a paper in the European journal Astronomy & Astrophysics, the PEPSI team presents a Zeeman- Doppler-Image of the surface of the magnetically active star II Pegasi.
A special technique allows astronomers to resolve the surfaces of faraway stars. Those are otherwise only seen as point sources, even in the largest telescopes...
Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, have proposed a way to create a completely new source of radiation. Ultra-intense light pulses consist of the motion of a single wave and can be described as a tsunami of light. The strong wave can be used to study interactions between matter and light in a unique way. Their research is now published in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters.
"This source of radiation lets us look at reality through a new angle - it is like twisting a mirror and discovering something completely different," says...
