    The current in Cloud-to-Groud (CG) flash return strokes is an important feature of lightning. It’s important for improving the technology of lightning protection. Nowadays more and more data are obtained by many observing methods, including short towers, tall towers, triggered-lightning and far field-current relations. It indicates that the mean of negative first return stroke currents is 30kA, the mean of negative subsequent return stroke currents is 12kA. And the mean of positive first return stroke currents is 35kA, the value of that sometimes can be hundreds. There are some differences for the mean of return stroke currents in different regions. Measurement using short towers or tall towers is the dominating method for the direct measurement of lightning currents. Both peak values and wave shapes are different at different height. The measurements of the subsequent return stroke current for nature-lightning and triggered-lightning are similar. The indirect estimation is more and more important with the development of lightning return strokes models.

    Based on the PSU/NACR Mesoscale Model version MM5, mesoscale ensemble prediction system in the upper reach of Changjiang River is constructed by using different physics schemes. Ensemble prediction experiments and verifications for precipitation are made during 16 August to 30 September of 2004. The results show that the ensemble prediction can increase prediction accuracy of precipitation over 25mm. The experiment results of a heavy rainfall case occurring on 3 September indicate that the ensemble precipitation prediction mean might give a good clue to the starting, duration, and ending of heavy rainfall process, especially precipitation probability distribution more-than-50mm. The rainfall prediction has better guidance for area of heavy rainfall.

    The circulation patterns of the heavy rain process in Huabei area on August 1996 was analyzed. The results show that the gradient between the subtropic high and typhoon is so strong that broad southerly jet continuously transports the water vapor and the energy to the north. The Mount Taihang was just located in convergence area, so it formed the advantageous weather situation for rainstorm. Based on MM5 numerical model, in term of the synoptic principle and the potential vorticity theory, the rain process of 4-5,August 1996 was simulated and its stability was analyzed. The main results are as follows: (1) MM5 model has a good performance to simulate the typhoon rainstorm physical process. (2)In this rain process, the instability stratification in South is higher than that in North, and there are symmetry instability and convection instability simultaneously. In addition, the conditional symmetric instability not only causes the circulation acceleration, but also increases the precipitation.

    Using MM5V3.5 mesoscale non-hydrostatic model, torrential rain occurring in the Shannxi Province during 8 to 9 June,2002 was simulated and analyzed. The main results are as follows: (1) Under the advantageous macroscale weather situation, the mesoscale-β system by developing along low-level-jet triggered by mesoscale-shear is the main influence system causing the heavy rainfall.(2)Furthermore,there are obvious dynamic-thermodynamic structural features in the developing phase of the mesoscale-β system. That is ,strong divergence column and intensive vorticity column are coupling developed,the intensive ascendant motion is intercoupled with saturated air column,there is a lot of accumulation of instable energy during the development of ascendant motion.MM5 model has the better performence to simulate the mesoscale systems and the torrential rainfall.So these conclusions will be helpful and provide references for the forecast of mesoscale storm rainfall.

    [Abstract](694) [HTML](64) [PDF 7.18 M](737)
    Based on the data of intensity fields of 714CD Radar and Doppler velocity fields and rainfall stations net established in villages and towns of Henan Province in 2005 and the data of auto-weather stations of Henan, the heavy rainfall in Henan influenced by the Typhoon “Haitang” is analyzed. The main conclusions are as follows: (1) The appearance of the heavy precipitation echoes is earlier about one hour than the mesoscale rain cluster, but the mesoscale rain cluster weakens and disappears earlier than the radar echoes of the heavy precipitation, and steady radar echoes of heavy precipitation are benefit for the form and development of the mesoscale rain cluster;(2) On the Doppler velocity fields, the existence of mesoscale system makes for the development and maintenance of heavy precipitation radar echoes ;(3)The area, influenced continually by the heavy precipitation radar echoes about 45 dBz, can produce“train effect”and lead to rainstorm even heavy rainstorm process. For the large-scale echoes of precipitation, according to the movement rules of the mesoscale rain cluster in village-town rainfall chart, the mesoscale systems in the Doppler velocity fields, such as the adverse wind area, the convergence region, the strong wind zone(low-level jet),can be analyzed to forecast correctly the heavy rainfall area and issue warning signal of the heavy rain.

    [Abstract](1376) [HTML](215) [PDF 5.64 M](842)
    Based on the self-recording wind and Doppler radar data from May to August in 2005, a statistic analysis about the relation among the damage wind, gust fronts and convective precipitation is made. It shows that a gust front is associated with the line or arc shape echo in the reflectivity products, and convergence line in the velocity products, and the damage wind near the surface. Its moving direction and speed foreshow the convective echoes’ spread direction, strength, and temporal-spatial distribution of the damage wind. It provides a reference for the short range forecasting and the nowcasting.

    Based on the data of 20 meteorological stations from 1990 to 2004 in Beijing, the characteristics and the variations of the urban heat island effect over Beijing are analyzed, and the relationship among the air temperature, the urban heat island effect, the ground temperature and the urban-rural ground temperature difference are also analyzed. The results show that strong UHI occurred in the night, but in the daytime UHI is not obvious. As a whole, UHI intensify year by year in the night, but in the daytime it is not obvious. In the night, the higher the surface temperature is, the stronger UHI becomes, and the greater the difference in urban-rural ground temperature becomes, the higher the ground temperature is, But in the daytime, all these relations are not so obvious as those in the night. The results can be used as scientific references to the development planning of Beijing city and the protection from high air temperature disasters of Beijing city.

    A stepwise regression method with tropical cyclone intensity change as the dependent variable is developed on the basis of the climatology and persistence (CLIPER) forecast scheme. The predictors are involved in climatology persistence,synoptic predictors,infrared satellite data. Regression is performed on 24-,48-,72-hour forecasts for three different sea areas in Northwest Pacific. The climatology persistence predictors as important factors are chosen in regression equations, another predictors are some synoptic predictors with the dynamical forcing effect and the maximum potential intensity (MPI) which is calculated by sea surface temperature. The independence test by a jackknife procedure shows an improvement over CLIPER scheme. Infrared satellite predictors could improve the prediction accuracy on some forecast interval.

    Using 850hPa mean monthly wind data, as well as data of 500hPa height, date of the Western Pacific Subtropical High ridge jumping northward to 25°N and precipitation data from June to July at 25 representative weather stations in Fujian, the criteria for the anomalous date of the subtropical high jumping northward to 25°N are defined and the anomalous years are found, the general characteristics of 850hPa wind field in June of the anomalous years are analyzed with the composite analytical method, and the effects of intensity of the Somali cross-equatorial flow on the subtropical high northward jumping to 25°N are discussed. The results are as follows: The Somali cross-equatorial flow with above-normal (below-normal) intensity in June contributes to the subtropical high jumping northward to 25°N earlier (later). The correlative coefficients between intensity of the Somali cross-equatorial flow from May to June and 500hPa heights in mid latitudes over the region from East Asia to the western Pacific are positive. The favorable circulation for the subtropical high northward jumping to 25°N earlier (later) is the higher (lower) heights in the region. Intensity of the Somali cross-equatorial flow could be a signal for predicting the time when the subtropical high jumps northward to 25°N. Based on the above results, the date of the subtropical high jumping northward to 25°N is diagnosed. It shows that the diagnosed result is correct.
