PREDICCIÓN CLIMÁTICA MENSUAL DE TOTALES DE PRECIPITACION Y TEMPERATURAS EXTREMAS DEL TERRITORIO DE CUBA PARA AGOSTO DEL 015.
10 August 2015

Se prevé un agosto muy cálido con lluvias cercanas o por debajo de lo normal para este mes .....

Agosto es el segundo mes del período intraestival y, por tanto, uno de los dos meses que menos precipitación aporta al período lluvioso en Cuba.

Durante este mes se mantiene la notable influencia del Anticiclón del Atlántico sobre Cuba, lo que condiciona que las precipitaciones sean relativamente escasas. No obstante, ocurren chubascos y tormentas eléctricas, principalmente durante la tarde y primeras horas de la noche, asociadas al paso de sistemas de la zona tropical, tales como las ondas y las bajas tropicales y al calentamiento diurno. Es también agosto un mes en que comienza a incrementarse la actividad ciclónica sobre Cuba, aunque la frecuencia de los huracanes que la afectan en dicho mes es sólo la mitad que la de septiembre.

The Finnish Meteorological Institute to use new marine research technology
10 August 2015

The Finnish Meteorological Institute FMI has ordered an underwater glider equipped with sensors collecting multidisciplinary data for marine research. The glider will help the FMI to diversify its marine data collection methods. The glider is the first of its kind in Finland, and it opens up new possibilities in, for example, assessing the future of the Baltic Sea more precisely.

Acquiring the glider is the latest step for Finnish marine research in using the most modern automatic technology. The device is an unmanned satellite-controlled instrument, which travels with help of gravitational and buoyant forces as it dives constantly between the surface and the seabed, following a route that has been programmed beforehand. The glider collects information about the entire water column.
