The nor'easter dropped between 2 and 3 feet of snowfall over the U.S. Northeast and left more than 650,000 without power in eight states, according to the Associated Press. Several governors established travel bans on Saturday, Feb. 9, to promote clean-up efforts.
At 10:50 a.m. EST on Feb. 10, 2013, the day after the New England snowstorm, the MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured this visible image of the snow cover over the New England states, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

NOAA's GOES-13 satellite sits in a fixed orbit over the eastern United States and continually provides visible and infrared imagery of the movement of weather systems. NOAA manages the GOES satellite. The NOAA image data was compiled into an animation by NASA's GOES Project at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.
The animation runs from Feb. 6 through 9, 2013, and shows two low pressure areas move from the upper Midwest and the Gulf of Mexico and come together over the Atlantic Ocean near the Mid-Atlantic States.
The two low pressure areas formed the nor'easter that brought heavy snowfall to the U.S. Northeast. New England was the victim of a winter cold front and a Gulf-enhanced warm front merging into a classic nor'easter off the coast of New Jersey. The merged storm was held along the coast by a blocking high pressure area in eastern Canada.
A collage of GOES-13 satellite images was created at NASA Goddard and shows the development of the nor'easter over several days. GOES-13 images were captured on Feb. 7 at 1515 UTC (10:15 a.m. ET) and clearly showed two separate low pressure areas. Images on Feb. 8 at 1301 (8:01 a.m. ET) and 2045 UTC (3:45 p.m. ET) show the storms consolidating. Images captured by NOAA's GOES-13 satellite on Feb. 9 at 0201 UTC (Feb. 8 at 9:01 p.m. ET) and Feb. 9 at 1231 UTC (7:31 a.m. ET) showed the systems had merged.
According to WCVB-TV, Boston, at 7 a.m. EST on Saturday, Feb. 9, there were about 400,000 customers without power in Massachusetts. The storm had moved east by 2 p.m. EST leaving behind blue skies and gusty winds.
About 24 hours after the storm moved away from the U.S. Northeast, NASA's Aqua satellite passed overhead to capture an image of the massive snowfall. At 10:50 a.m. EST on Feb. 10, 2013, the day after the New England snowstorm, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured a visible image that showed snow cover over the New England states, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The image was created by NASA's MODIS Rapid Response Team at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.Rob Gutro

Sieben mittelständische Unternehmen des Orthopädiefachhandwerks, die Universität Bayreuth und die Fraunhofer-Projektgruppe Prozessinnovation in Bayreuth haben sich zum neuen Netzwerk „Footware Innovation Network (FIN)“ zusammengeschlossen. Das Netzwerk soll dem Orthopädiefachhandwerk den Nutzen digitaler Technologien vom 3D-Scan bis zum 3D-Druck erschließen, um kundenorientiert und dabei kostengünstig höchst individuelle Produkte herstellen zu können.
Praktikable Produktlösungen für das Orthopädiefachhandwerk
Researchers at King’s College London and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in the United Kingdom have for the first time demonstrated a direct link between the Wbp2 gene and progressive hearing loss. The scientists report that the loss of Wbp2 expression leads to progressive high-frequency hearing loss in mouse as well as in two clinical cases of children with deafness with no other obvious features. The results are published in EMBO Molecular Medicine.
The scientists have shown that hearing impairment is linked to hormonal signalling rather than to hair cell degeneration. Wbp2 is known as a transcriptional...
