NASA's IMERG calculated rainfall of Tropical Cyclone 03S

01.02.2017

NASA's IMERG product was used to calculate the amount of rainfall generated by Ex-tropical Cyclone 03S. By January 30, the former tropical cyclone was a remnant low pressure area in the Southern Indian Ocean.

Integrated Multi-satellitE Retrievals for GPM (IMERG) data were used to show rainfall that fell near tropical cyclone 03S.


NASA's IMERG rainfall product provided an analysis during the period from Jan. 24 to 26, 2017.. Rainfall totals of close to 300 mm (11.8 inches) were estimated along Australia's northwest coast.

The highest rainfall totals were found by IMERG as the parent low pressure center moved over northwestern Australia during the period from January 24 to 26, 2017.

GPM is the Global Precipitation Measurement mission core satellite. GPM is a joint mission between NASA and the Japanese space agency JAXA.

Tropical cyclone 03S formed from the low only after moving into the warm waters of the Indian Ocean on January 27, 2017.

IMERG data were used to analyze rainfall that occurred near the parent low and tropical cyclone 03S' centers of circulation. Rainfall totals of close to 300 mm (11.8 inches) were estimated along Australia's northwest coast.

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...

Im Focus: Researchers develop method to transfer entire 2D circuits to any smooth surface

What if a sensor sensing a thing could be part of the thing itself? Rice University engineers believe they have a two-dimensional solution to do just that.

Rice engineers led by materials scientists Pulickel Ajayan and Jun Lou have developed a method to make atom-flat sensors that seamlessly integrate with devices...

Im Focus: Three components on one chip

Scientists at the University of Stuttgart and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) succeed in important further development on the way to quantum Computers.

Quantum computers one day should be able to solve certain computing problems much faster than a classical computer. One of the most promising approaches is...
