Terrain-influenced Monsoon Rainfall Experiment

SPOL Radar at TiMERX

TiMREX was a joint U.S.-Taiwan field program conducted on the plains and in the western mountain slope region of southern Taiwan. The research focused on the physics of heavy rain and flood-producing convective systems—and the difficulty of forecasting such events—in a complex environment. The SPOL radar was deployed from 15 May through 30 June 2008. Students from the Radar Meteorology Group at Colorado State University helped operate the SPOL radar during the field program.
