PRECIP: Prediction of Rainfall Extremes Campaign In the Pacific
PRECIP was developed to increase our understanding of the causes and increase our prediction capability of extreme rainfall events. PRECIP addressed this need through an in-depth and comprehensive study of the fundamental causes of extreme rainfall events in and around Taiwan, an area that regularly experiences extreme rainfall events during the Meiyu and tropical cyclone seasons. PRECIP deployed the NCAR EOL S-Pol research radar along the northwestern coast of Taiwan and Colorado State University’s SEAPOL research radar on Yonaguni, a small Japanese island near Taiwan’s northeastern coast. Additional field data were collected with radiosondes, dropsondes, and disdrometers deployed across the region.
