NASA finds Tropical Depression 13W hugging southeastern coast

July 23, 2018

Tropical Depression 13W formed on July 22 and the next day, NASA's Aqua satellite captured an image of the storm hugging the coast of southeastern China.

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite caught a visible light image of an elongated Tropical Depression 13W along the southeastern coast of China on July 23 at 12:35 a.m. EDT (0435 UTC). It was located just north of Taiwan.

At 11 a.m. EDT (1500 UTC) the Joint Typhoon Warning Center or JTWC issued their final bulletin on 13W. JTWC noted that Tropical Depression 13W had maximum sustained winds near 25 knots (28.7 mph/46.3 kph). It was located near 30.8 degrees north latitude and 122.9 degrees east longitude, about 308 nautical miles north-northeast of Taipei, Taiwan. 13W continued moving north at 19 knots (21.8 mph/35.2 kph).

The JTWC forecast calls for 13W to move north and parallel the east coast of China, before dissipating to the west of the Korean peninsula.

Dispatch 6: Strange Times
Covid has disrupted the most basic routines of our days and nights. But in the middle of a conversation about how to fight the virus, we find a place impervious to the stalled plans and frenetic demands of the outside world. It's a very different kind of front line, where urgent work means moving slow, and time is marked out in tiny pre-planned steps. Then, on a walk through the woods, we consider how the tempo of our lives affects our minds and discover how the beats of biology shape our bodies.
