2015 Taipei Severe Weather and Extreme Precipitation Workshop
"2015 Taipei SWEP Workshop"
Taipei, Taiwan, 25-27 May 2015

Workshop Theme:
Severe weather and extreme precipitation cause great damages to
properties and even human lives, and they are mainly associated with
deep convective systems such as severe storms in midlatitudes and
hurricanes/typhoons in the tropics. They produce high winds, large
hails, lightning and flash floods that impact our daily life. Deep
convection also plays pivotal role in the transport of momentum which is
an efficient adjustment mechanism to balance the energy and many major
trace chemicals. Understanding how severe weather and extreme
precipitation occur is a major scientific challenge in both weather and
climate scale. It is also important to understand how severe weather and
extreme precipitation are simulated in the weather and climate model,
and how they will change in the future warming world.

This workshop invites research papers on recent progress related to the
areas of severe weather and extreme rainfall, especially those based on
observations and modeling. We especially emphasize remote sensing (such
as radar and satellite) in observational techniques and modeling efforts
that intend to understand the underlying physics and the need to improve
model capability in both weather and climate scales. The following are
tentative topics to be addressed:

- Characteristics of systems that produce severe weather and extreme
precipitation (SWEP)
- Remote sensing and in-situ monitoring techniques
- Pre-convective environment
- Early and mature convections and clouds
- Numerical simulations of SWEP systems
- Forecast model development and verification in various scales.
- Severe weather and extreme precipitation in climate model
- Future changes in severe weather and extreme precipitation
