Weather and Climate Research in Taiwan: Potential Application of GPS/MET Data


Meteorological research in Taiwan mainly includes the East Asian climate, the heavy rainfall system (Mei-Yu front) and the typhoon research. In addition to these research components, an operational center on numerical weather prediction is actively run at the Central Weather Bureau. There are strong collaborations between Taiwan and the international meteorology communities. The COSMIC program in Taiwan is a new Taiwan-U.S. joint program designed to launch eight low-earth-orbiting satellites in 2004 for GPS/MET soundings.
