Overview of JMA activity,
especially numerical weather prediction division and RSMC Tokyo
27 Sept, Noon in 2155
This presentation provides three recent activities related to Japan Meteorological Agency and Meteorological Research Institute.
First, I introduce current status of operational NWP system (Global,
Meso-scale, and Local model) by numerical prediction division of JMA.
Future plan of model development at JMA is shown.
Second, RSMC Tokyo products related to TC analysis and forecast are
introduced. This includes early Dvorak technique, TC track and genesis
prediction based on ensemble forecasts at several NWP centers, and
storm surge prediction.
Third, I present one of the collaborative projects of MRI with the
Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC), Global
7-km mesh nonhydrostatic Model Intercomparison Project for improving
TYphoon forecast (TYMIP-G7). This project is designed to understand and
statistically quantify the advantage of high-resolution nonhydrostatic
global atmospheric models for improvement of tropical cyclone (TC)
