When NASA's Aqua satellite passed over post-tropical storm Fabio on July 18 at 1023 UTC (6:23 a.m. EDT), the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument captured temperatures of cloud tops and the sea surface. AIRS data showed very little strong convection and heavy rainfall occurring in the post-tropical storm and it was north of the center of circulation. Wind shear from the south is pushing the showers north of the center.

Sea surface temperatures are not warm enough to support a tropical cyclone because they are colder than 22 Celsius (71.6 Fahrenheit) in the area Fabio is moving through.
At 11 a.m. EDT on July 18, the National Hurricane Center issued their final advisory on post-tropical storm Fabio. At that time, Fabio was about 535 miles (855 km) south-southwest of San Diego, California, near latitude 25.7 north and longitude 120.8 west. Fabio's maximum sustained winds were near 30 mph (45 kmh) and weakening. It was still moving to the north at 9 mph (15 kmh) but is expected to turn to the north-northeast.
Doppler radar images from San Diego, Calif. showed some shower activity from Fabio approaching the area at 11 a.m. EDT on July 18.
The National Hurricane Center expects Fabio to dissipate in a couple of days. Meanwhile, large ocean swells, rip tides and dangerous surf conditions continue to affect the coasts of Baja California, Mexico and southern California.

Determining the Earth’s gravity field more accurately than ever before

The quality of additively manufactured components depends not only on the manufacturing process, but also on the inline process control. The process control ensures a reliable coating process because it detects deviations from the target geometry immediately. At LASER World of PHOTONICS 2019, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be demonstrating how well bi-directional sensor technology can already be used for Laser Material Deposition (LMD) in combination with commercial optics at booth A2.431.
Fraunhofer ILT has been developing optical sensor technology specifically for production measurement technology for around 10 years. In particular, its »bd-1«...
The well-known representation of chemical elements is just one example of how objects can be arranged and classified
The periodic table of elements that most chemistry books depict is only one special case. This tabular overview of the chemical elements, which goes back to...
Light can be used not only to measure materials’ properties, but also to change them. Especially interesting are those cases in which the function of a material can be modified, such as its ability to conduct electricity or to store information in its magnetic state. A team led by Andrea Cavalleri from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg used terahertz frequency light pulses to transform a non-ferroelectric material into a ferroelectric one.
Ferroelectricity is a state in which the constituent lattice “looks” in one specific direction, forming a macroscopic electrical polarisation. The ability to...
Researchers at TU Graz calculate the most accurate gravity field determination of the Earth using 1.16 billion satellite measurements. This yields valuable knowledge for climate research.
The Earth’s gravity fluctuates from place to place. Geodesists use this phenomenon to observe geodynamic and climatological processes. Using...
Discovery by Brazilian and US researchers could change the classification of two species, which appear more akin to jellyfish than was thought.
The tube anemone Isarachnanthus nocturnus is only 15 cm long but has the largest mitochondrial genome of any animal sequenced to date, with 80,923 base pairs....
