The TRMM satellite flew above weakening tropical storm Daniel on July 10, 2012 at 0003 UTC. TRMM's Microwave Imager (TMI) and Precipitation Radar (PR) data from that pass showed that only light to moderate rainfall (.0.78 to 1.57 inches/20 to 40 mm/hour) was occurring with the weakening storm.
This analysis of sea surface temperatures is from July 8-10, 2012. Daniel's predicted path (shown in white) takes it over water with temperatures of about 24-25 C (~75.2 to 77.0 F). The boundary of 26 C (~79 F ) temperatures are shown in yellow on this analysis. Credit: Credit: NASA/SSAI, Hal Pierce
When TRMM passed over Daniel on July 11 at 0858 UTC, it observed a few strong thunderstorms near Daniel's center of circulation reaching to heights of over 11km (~6.8 miles). Radar reflectivity values of almost 42 dBZ were being returned to TRMM PR indicating that moderate to heavy rainfall was occurring in that area.
Daniel is crossing over into the central Pacific Ocean today. On Friday the weakening tropical depression is expected to be south-southeast of the Hawaiian Islands.

Innsbruck quantum physicists have constructed a diode for magnetic fields and then tested it in the laboratory. The device, developed by the research groups led by the theorist Oriol Romero-Isart and the experimental physicist Gerhard Kirchmair, could open up a number of new applications.
Electric diodes are essential electronic components that conduct electricity in one direction but prevent conduction in the opposite one. They are found at the...
Max Planck researchers revel the nano-structure of molecular trains and the reason for smooth transport in cellular antennas.
Moving around, sensing the extracellular environment, and signaling to other cells are important for a cell to function properly. Responsible for those tasks...
Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
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...
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...
