The Misions of Meteorological Research and Development Center
Missions of the Center:
1. Design and manage corporative research projects.
2. Design and manage visiting scientists programs.
3. Design and manage research workshop and conference.
4. Scientific publications.
The mission of the CWB Research
and development Center is to support research relevant to forecasting operations.
The research covers a wide range of atmospheric sciences, such as numerical
weather prediction, statistical climatology, tropical meteorology, mesoscale
meteorology, and radar meteorology, etc. Recent focus has been on
the implementation of the third generation numerical weather prediction
system, the improvement of typhoon and heavy rainfall forecasting techniques,
and the introduction of medium- and long- range weather forecasting techniques.
Some of the research results obtained in past years are now being tested
Over recent years, the persistence
of abnormal warm sea temperatures has been observed in the eastern equatorial
Pacific of South America. These El Nino phenomena appear to have
caused abnormal weather conditions, such as floods and droughts in various
regions on the globe. The CWB not only participates in the international
Research Institute for Climate Prediction (IRI-CP) but also cooperates
with domestic universities and research institutes to develop regional
climate prediction techniques in order to provide information relevant
to El Nino predictions.
In addition, through the contracted
research projects and the annual weather analysis and forecast conference,
the CWB also constantly invites domestic or overseas scholars and experts
as consultants to join in research subjects of common interest or to assist
in solving specific problems in forecast operations.
