Project: Research on the improvement of typhoon track forecasting and objective intensity analysis (FY 2014-2018)

Subproject 1: Research on improvement of tropical cyclone track forecast using global/regional NWP systems to analyze and forecast TCs

We research on global/regional NWP systems to analyze and forecast TCs towards the goal to further improve TC track forecasts. The main foci are as follows:


(1) Development of global NWP systems to assimilate satellite remote sensing data (next generation Himawari etc.) around TCs.


(2) Improvement of physical parameterization schemes (cumulus convection etc.) of global NWP models.


(3) Development of regional NWP systems to assimilate satellite remote sensing data (microwave radiometers etc.) around TCs.


(4) TC forecast probability study using TIGGE (the THORPEX Interactive Grand Global Ensemble) products etc.
