[A-AS22] Hyper-dense observation and forecast to elucidate micro-scale atmospheric phenomena

Tue. May 26, 2015 9:00 AM - 10:45 AM 301A (3F)

Convener:*Jun-ichi Furumoto(Research Institute for Sustainable Humanosphere, Kyoto University), Nobumitsu Tsunematsu(Tokyo Metropolitan Research Institute for Environmental Protection), Kentaro Araki(Forecast Research Department, Meteorological Research Institute, Japan Meteorological Agency), Chair:Kuniaki Higashi(Research Institute for Sustainable Humanosphere, Kyoto University)

The recent development of sub-kilometer scale hyper-dense meterological observations enable us to unveil the detailed behavior and structure ofmicro-scale meteorological penomena.

This is also be very useful for the precise forecast of the disatrous phenonema such as windstrom or tornado by investigating the correlation with near-surface atmospheric disturbances such as the divergence line and heat island phenomena.

Noteworthy that the improvement of meteorological model enables to represent these micro-scale phenomena.
In this sense, the complehensive studies combining observation and model
are strongly expected.

This session is widely welcome papers regarding the new research and future scope in the field of micro-scale phenomena study.

9:15 AM - 9:30 AM
