Titiwangsa Mountains Along Malay Peninsula

7.0N 99.9E

June 20th, 2012 Category: Mountains

Malay Peninsula - January 6th, 2012

This wide-swath ASAR image shows the Malay Peninsula (or Thai-Malay Peninsula), a peninsula in Southeast Asia (visible in its entirety in the full image). The land mass runs approximately north-south and, at its terminus, is the southern-most point of the Asian mainland. The area contains the southernmost tip of Burma, Peninsular Malaysia, Singapore, and Southern Thailand.

The image shows the ridges and contours of the Titiwangsa Mountains, part of the Tenasserim Hills system, that form the backbone of the Peninsula. They form the southernmost section of the central cordillera which runs from Tibet through the Kra Isthmus (the Peninsula’s narrowest point) into the Malay peninsula.

Vegetation Index of Malay Peninsula

5.8N 101.1E

April 26th, 2012 Category: Vegetation Index

Malaysia - January 5th, 2012

This FAPAR image shows the photosynthetic activity of part of the Malay Peninsula, a peninsula in Southeast Asia. The land mass runs approximately north-south and, at its terminus, is the southern-most point of the Asian mainland. Here, the index of photosynthetic activity ranges mostly from good (green) to high (rusty red), with a few, sparse patches of low (yellow) activity visible.

Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, Malay Peninsula

3.1N 101.6E

March 24th, 2012 Category: Mountains

Malaysia - January 6th, 2012

This wide-swath ASAR image shows the city of Kuala Lumpur (visible as a bright white area towards the upper left), the capital of Malaysia, on the Malay Peninsula, and the city-state of Singapore (visible at the right edge), just off the peninsula’s coast. The peninsula is a landmass in Southeast Asia that runs approximately north-south and, at its terminus, is the southern-most point of the Asian mainland.

The Titiwangsa Mountains are part of the Tenasserim Hills system, and form the backbone of the Peninsula (more of this range is visible upon opening the full image). The Strait of Malacca separates the Malay Peninsula from the Indonesian island of Sumatra while the south coast is separated from the island of Singapore by the Straits of Johor.

Singapore is a city-state off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, 137 km north of the equator. An island country made up of 63 islands, it is separated from Malaysia by the Straits of Johor to its north and from Indonesia’s Riau Islands by the Singapore Strait to its south. Singapore is highly urbanised but almost half of the country is covered by greenery. More land is being created for development through land reclamation.

Titiwangsa Mountains of Malay Peninsula, Thailand

9.0N 99.2E

October 26th, 2011 Category: Mountains

Thailand - October 24th, 2011

This wide-swath ASAR image shows part of southern Thailand, by the Gulf of Thailand (above). Southern Thailand consists of the narrow Kra Isthmus that widens into the Malay Peninsula.

The Titiwangsa Mountains are part of the Tenasserim Hills system, and form the backbone of the Peninsula. They form the southernmost section of the central cordillera which runs from Tibet through the Kra Isthmus (the Peninsula’s narrowest point) into the Malay peninsula.

Area of Convection by Malay Peninsula Could Become Tropical Cyclone

0.3S 97.9E

Area of Convection - November 1st, 2010

Track of Area of Convection

An area of convection has persisted approximately 235 nm north-northwest of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Animated infrared satellite imagery shows flaring convection, associated with a loosely organized low level circulation center (LLCC), persisting over the Malay Peninsula.

Over the past several hours, surface observations have indicated variable winds (10-15 knots) out of the west-northwest with a 24 hour pressure decrease of 6 mb’s.

Upper level analysis indicates broad upper level diffluence with low vertical wind shear (10 to 15 knots). Maximum sustained surface winds are estimated at 20 to 25 knots. Minimum sea level pressure is estimated to be near 1003 mb.

Due to persistent deep convection and favorable upper level conditions, the potential for the development of a significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours is fair.
