NASA finds Tropical Storm 07W near Kadena Air Base, Okinawa

June 14, 2018

NASA satellite imagery captured Tropical Storm 07W soon after it developed near Kadena Air Base on the island of Okinawa, Japan in the Northwestern Pacific Ocean.

On June at 12:30 a.m. EDT (0430 UTC), the MODIS or Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured a visible light image of the storm. The image showed there is a small area of deep and persistent convection located to the northeast of the low level circulation center. As a result, the storm appeared elongated on the MODIS imagery. A METOP-B satellite image confirmed that the storm is asymmetric.

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center noted that the storm is elongated because it is being battered by strong vertical wind shear between 34 to 46 mph (30 to 40 knots/55 to 74 kph).

On June 14 at 5 a.m. EDT (0900 UTC) 07W's center was located near 26.6 degrees north latitude and 126.1 degrees east longitude. That's about 91 nautical miles west of Kadena Air Base, Okinawa, Japan. 07W has been moving northeastward at 23 mph (20 knots/37 kph). Maximum sustained winds were near 40 mph (35 knots/62 kph).

Tropical Depression 07W is forecast to move northeast and pass near the island of Omami Oshima while becoming extra-tropical.

#509 Anisogamy: The Beginning of Male and Female
This week we discuss how the sperm and egg came to be, and how a difference of reproductive interest has led to sexual conflict in bed bugs. We'll be speaking with Dr. Geoff Parker, an evolutionary biologist credited with developing a theory to explain the evolution of two sexes, about anisogamy, sexual reproduction through the fusion of two different gametes: the egg and the sperm. Then we'll speak with Dr. Roberto Pereira, research scientist in urban entomology at the University of Florida, about traumatic insemination in bed bugs.
