Track of Ts 16W

Although the still images show the system at greater strength, Tropical Storm Bolaven (16W), has now fully transitioned to an extratropical storm, as is evident in the animated imagery.

It is located approximately 350 nm north of Seoul, South Korea, and has tracked north-northeastward at 29 knots. Over the past six hours. the storm has become fully embedded within the baroclinic zone as it has tracked over land.

There is a noticeable dry slot in animated water vapor satellite imagery, with convection moving to the periphery of the storm, and increasing translation speeds, all indicative of a storm that has become an extratropical system.

Tan Sediments in Incheon Bay, Korean Peninsula

Korea - February 11th, 2011

Tan sediments are present in Incheon Bay, a bay on the west side of the Korean Peninsula by the border between North Korea and South Korea. Incheon Bay is famous for its high tidal range.

Inland, the port city of Incheon and the capital city of Seoul can be seen in South Korea near the bay. Incheon is one of South Korea’s four largest cities. It is the largest seaport on the west coast and the second largest port in the country.

The Seoul National Capital Area includes the Incheon metropolis, making it the world’s second largest metropolitan area with over 24.5 million inhabitants. Almost half of South Korea’s population live in the Seoul National Capital Area.

Tropical Storm Malou (10W) is located approximately 320 nm south of Cheju Island, and has tracked north-northwestward at 15 knots over the past six hours. Maximum significant wave height is 16 feet.

Animated infrared satellite imagery shows increased deep convection developing over the low level circulation center (LLCC) with low level banding wrapping into the system from the northwest and southeast.

The imagery and the convective asymmetry of the system indicate stronger winds along the eastern flank of the system associated with the tight pressure gradient. Current intensity is about 35 knots, with 25 to 30 knot winds at the system center.

Upper level analysis reveals TS10W is in a region of enhanced diffluence aloft associated with its proximity to the diffluent region of the upper level low over Taiwan. The system is currently tracking along the southwestern periphery of a western extension of a low to mid-level steering ridge.

Malou is forecast to continue tracking north-northwestward through TAU 36, then begin to turn poleward as an approaching mid-latitude trough erodes the ridge. The system is forecast to gradually intensify through TAU36, then weaken as it interacts with the mid-latitude westerly flow near TAU 48. The system is expected to make landfall south of Seoul, South Korea, and rapidly weaken as it becomes absorbed into the baroclinic boundary.
