Tropical Depression Haishen moves away from Fananu

07.04.2015

Tropical Storm Haishen has weakened and moved farther away from the island of Fananu in the Northwestern Pacific Ocean.

Before Haishen weakened from tropical storm status, NASA's Aqua satellite passed overhead and captured a visible image showing the system over Micronesia.

On April 4 at 03:00 UTC, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured a visible image of Tropical Storm Haishen over the Fananu and the Federated States of Micronesia.

The MODIS image showed the center of the storm northwest of Fananu.

By 1500 UTC (11 a.m. EDT) on April 6, Haishen had weakened to a tropical depression with maximum sustained winds near 25 knots (28.7 mph/46.3 kph).

The depression was moving to the north-northwest at 7 knots (8 mph/12.9 kph), further away from Micronesia.

It was centered near 9.6 north latitude and 150.3 east longitude, about 149 nautical miles (171 miles/276 km) northwest of Chuuk.

Infrared imagery showed that there was little strong convection left in the system and most of it was being pushed away from the center by strong southwesterly wind shear.

That wind shear continues to weaken the tropical depression and the Joint Typhoon Warning Center expects Haishen to dissipate in a day or two.

Im Focus: Electrons in the fast lane

Solar cells based on perovskite compounds could soon make electricity generation from sunlight even more efficient and cheaper. The laboratory efficiency of these perovskite solar cells already exceeds that of the well-known silicon solar cells. An international team led by Stefan Weber from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz has found microscopic structures in perovskite crystals that can guide the charge transport in the solar cell. Clever alignment of these "electron highways" could make perovskite solar cells even more powerful.

Solar cells convert sunlight into electricity. During this process, the electrons of the material inside the cell absorb the energy of the light....
