New satellite movie chases post-Tropical Storm Alberto in Atlantic

24.05.2012
On May 23, 2012, the remnants of post-tropical storm Alberto were chasing a frontal system over the Atlantic Ocean, several hundred miles east of the U.S. East coast. A new NASA animation of imagery from NOAA's GOES-15 satellite shows the progression of Alberto's remnants.

The last advisory on Alberto from the National Hurricane Center was posted on May 22, at 11 a.m. EDT. At that time, Alberto was a post-tropical storm with maximum sustained winds near 35 mph (55 kph).

It was centered about 295 miles (470 km) south-southeast of Norfolk, Virginia near 33.1 North and 74.0 West and moving quickly to the northeast at 17 mph (28 kph).

This movie was created using GOES-15 satellite imagery gathered from May 21 to May 23 at 1745 UTC (1:45 p.m. EDT). In the animation, Alberto is first seen off the coast of South Carolina. As the animation progresses, the storm moves northeast toward a large cold front off the coast of the eastern U.S. By May 22 around 1845 UTC, Alberto's remnants appear to begin interacting with the frontal system as both push northeast.

By May 23 at 1731 UTC (1:31 p.m. EDT), the weak remaining circulation associated with Alberto is still slightly west of the frontal system. The National Hurricane Center noted that Alberto's remnants are expected to dissipate by sometime on May 25.

GOES-15 is operated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The animation was created by NASA's GOES Project, located at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md.

Im Focus: A step towards controlling spin-dependent petahertz electronics by material defects

The operational speed of semiconductors in various electronic and optoelectronic devices is limited to several gigahertz (a billion oscillations per second). This constrains the upper limit of the operational speed of computing. Now researchers from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg, Germany, and the Indian Institute of Technology in Bombay have explained how these processes can be sped up through the use of light waves and defected solid materials.

Light waves perform several hundred trillion oscillations per second. Hence, it is natural to envision employing light oscillations to drive the electronic...

Im Focus: Freiburg researcher investigate the origins of surface texture

Most natural and artificial surfaces are rough: metals and even glasses that appear smooth to the naked eye can look like jagged mountain ranges under the microscope. There is currently no uniform theory about the origin of this roughness despite it being observed on all scales, from the atomic to the tectonic. Scientists suspect that the rough surface is formed by irreversible plastic deformation that occurs in many processes of mechanical machining of components such as milling.

Prof. Dr. Lars Pastewka from the Simulation group at the Department of Microsystems Engineering at the University of Freiburg and his team have simulated such...

Im Focus: Making the internet more energy efficient through systemic optimization

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, recently completed a 5-year research project looking at how to make fibre optic communications systems more energy efficient. Among their proposals are smart, error-correcting data chip circuits, which they refined to be 10 times less energy consumptive. The project has yielded several scientific articles, in publications including Nature Communications.

Streaming films and music, scrolling through social media, and using cloud-based storage services are everyday activities now.

Im Focus: New synthesis methods enhance 3D chemical space for drug discovery

After helping develop a new approach for organic synthesis -- carbon-hydrogen functionalization -- scientists at Emory University are now showing how this approach may apply to drug discovery. Nature Catalysis published their most recent work -- a streamlined process for making a three-dimensional scaffold of keen interest to the pharmaceutical industry.

"Our tools open up whole new chemical space for potential drug targets," says Huw Davies, Emory professor of organic chemistry and senior author of the paper.
