Mission

                    

To monitor the implementation of existing priority projects within the Working Group and to further develop other appropriate research projects as the need arises, under the main programme components: tropical cyclones and monsoons;

To identify and support the research initiatives of NMHSs in tropical countries generally including collaboration with groups in universities or research institutes, which are likely to lead to societal and economic benefits; and

To keep developments in research aspects of the Tropical Cyclone Programme (TCP) under continuous review and facilitate the coordination of research at regional levels by maintaining close liaison with tropical cyclone regional bodies.

WHAT TO WATCH OUT FOR IN 2019:

  

   4th MONSOON HEAVY RAINFALL WORKSHOP (MHR-4)       NEW

   (Shenzhen, China, 16-18 April 2019)   APPLICATION FORM

 

We are pleased to announce that the 4th Monsoon Heavy Rainfall Workshop will be held in Shenzhen, China from 16-18 April 2019. The workshop organized by the SCMREX Project Team aims to present and discuss recent research results on the observation, modelling and prediction of heavy rainfall in the monsoon region including heavy rainfall associated with tropical cyclone events. The workshop's International Programme Committee, composed of Professors Richard Johnson and Yihui Ding and Drs Thierry Lefort and Esperanza Cayanan, is chaired by Professor C.P. Chang. The Local Organizing Committee is chaired by Professor Yali Luo of CAMS/CMA and Principal Investigator of the SCMREX Project.

WMO's Southern China Monsoon Rainfall Experiment

The SCMREX RDP (2013-2018) aims to improve our understanding of the structures and evolution of the South China heavy-rain-producing storms during the monsoon outbreak period and improve prediction of these high-impact rainfall events through field campaigns, data processing and sharing, numerical modeling and analysis. The website is hosted by the China Meteorological Administration. For more detailed information about the project please visit the SCMREX website hosted by CAMS/CMA at: SCMREX

Special session on the Maritime Continent at the upcoming AMOS-ICSHMO conference (Sydney, Australia, 5-9 February 2018)

3.3 Maritime Continent earth system science for improved understanding and prediction of its local variability and global impact

Session Convenors: Matthew Wheeler, Chidong Zhang, Susan Wijffels, Robyn Schofield

The Maritime Continent (MC) is a unique mix of islands and ocean straddling the equator to the north of Australia, located within the Indo-Pacific warm pool that experiences the globally highest mean sea surface temperatures and acts as the anchor for the largest centre of deep atmospheric convection. It therefore has a strong influence on both nearby and global weather and climate. The scientific issues of the MC region are its frequent convective storms, strong diurnal cycle, complex topography and bathymetry, and its location at the interface between the Pacific and Indian Oceans. These issues require special research attention for progress to be made in our earth system modelling, prediction, and projection efforts. In this session we solicit submissions on all aspects of earth systems science focussed on the MC region, including atmospheric convection, ocean vertical mixing, Indonesian Throughflow, biogenic emissions, model biases, Madden-Julian oscillation, land-atmosphere interactions, and troposphere-stratosphere exchange.
