NASA’s GPM shows rainfall southeast of sheared Tropical Cyclone Iris

Wind shear has been affecting Tropical Cyclone Iris as it lingers off the coast of eastern Queensland. The Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission core satellite observed how northerly wind shear was pushing Iris' rainfall to the south of the center. The GPM core observatory satellite passed over the center of Tropical Cyclone Iris on April 6, 2018 at 0027 UTC (10:27 a.m. AEST local time/April…

COLUMBUS, Ohio (April 6, 2018) -- The demand for high performance computing in Ohio is relentless, and it does not discriminate by field. At Thursday's Ohio Supercomputer Center Statewide Users Group (SUG) spring conference, OSC clients in fields spanning everything from astrophysics to linguistics gathered to share research highlights and hear updates about the center's direction and role in supporting science across Ohio. SUG is…
