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.

Korean Peninsula - March 11th, 2011

Sediments pour off the western coast of the Korean Peninsula and into the Yellow Sea. They are particularly concentrated in Korea Bay (above) and Incheon Bay (center, below).

Incheon Bay is located by the border between North Korea and South Korea, and is famous for its high tidal range. Korea Bay, also called West Korea Bay, is located in the northern part of the Yellow Sea, between Liaoning Province of China and North P’yŏngan Province of North Korea.

Korea Bay is separated from the Bohai Sea by the Liaodong Peninsula, with Dalian at its southernmost point. The Yalu (Amnok) River, which marks the border between China and North Korea, empties into the Korea Bay between Dandong (China) and Sinŭiju (North Korea).

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.
