    Major advances in studies of summer low temperature, such as its climatic features and its circulation features as well as the influence factors in Northeast Ch ina for recent 30 years are reviewed. Summer low temperature in Northeast China is a largescale climatic disaster which can persist longer and be influenced b y atmosphere general circulation systems and underlying surface. The studies of forecast for summer low temperature are simpler, so the mechanism and developing forecast system of summer low temperature in Northeast China will be most impor tant in the future studies.

    Using the fifthgeneration PSU/NCAR Mesoscale Model (MM5V3.7), a rain storm on June 25 to 26, 2005 in Henan Province is successfully simulated. The output of the model such as integrated hydrometeor, the Doppler Radar echo, and the 24ho ur precipitation are very the same like the fact. Based on the good res ults of the model, the dynamic and thermodynamic conditions, the changes of the i nstability index in two different areas and the hydrometeor changes are analyzed . Besides, the differences of the microphysical structures characteristics in the different phases of the precipitation process are analyzed by using the quality content of snow (Qs), graupel (Qg), ice (Qi), rain (Qr), and cloud water (Qc) calculated by Reisner microphysical schemes.

    [Abstract](494) [HTML](57) [PDF 669.30 K](790)
    Based on the new generation numerical prediction model GRAPES (Global/ Regional Assimilation and Prediction Enhanced System), with three kinds of physi cs option parameterization schemes(Kessler schemes、NCEP3-class simple ice sc hemes and simple ice schemes (developed by Liu Qinjun, CAMS) ) and two kinds of cu mulus parameterization schemes (KainFritsch (new Eta) and BettsMillerJanji c), six combinational schemes are formed. 48hour predicting experiments are made for the precipitation cases in the rainy season in Guizhou. Comparisons among the experiments and analyses of the observations indicate that GRAPES model can be used for predicting Guizhou precipitation. The predicting effect of cumulus para meterization schemes is better than that of physics option parameterization sche mes. The predicting Guizhou precipitation ability of combinational schemes with simple ice scheme physics option parameterization, BettsMillerJanjic cumulus parameterization is superior to the others. These results are useful for improvin g the GRAPES model for predicting Guizhou precipitation.

    2007, 33(4):29-34. DOI: 10.7519/j.issn.1000-0526.2007.04.005
    [Abstract](511) [HTML](113) [PDF 646.36 K](1105)
    To make fully use of FY-2C geostationary satellite in the field of wea ther modification and climate, cloud effective particle radius was retrieved fro m FY2C Channel 4(3.5~4.0μm)data based on the radiative transfer mode, SBDA RT. While comparing to the corresponding MODIS products on TERRA, it is shown tha t FY-2C presents similar distribution patterns of cloud effective radius to MOD IS, but with some differences in particle size. The different retrieval algorithm s, satellite resolutions and channels may be the main factors causing these diff erences between two data sets.
    6  A Study of Selecting High Density Tracers in Deriving Winds from Geostationary Meteorological Satellite Data
    Yang Wenkai Bai Jie Yan Wei Liu Jianwen
    2007, 33(4):35-39. DOI: 10.7519/j.issn.1000-0526.2007.04.006
    [Abstract](507) [HTML](65) [PDF 1.18 M](924)
    An important step in deriving winds from geostationary meteorological satellite data is selecting the clouds which move slowly and go with the wind,w hich is called tracers. A new scheme of tracer selection is developed to improve the quality and the density of cloud motion winds. The scheme has a novel featu re that the extraction location of the tracer is not fixed at the center locatio n of the grid, but first optimized at the location where the gradient is maximum in the grid domain, and then by cumulonimbus and uniformity test, the final tra cers can be decided. Then cloud motion winds are derived from these tracers and after a circumfluence analysis on the cloud motion winds, the cloud motion wind s are compared with the rawinsonde winds. The result shows that the cloud motio n winds have well quality and higher density, and the wind structure of weather system can be seen clearly from them.

    Jin Ronghua Meng Jiachuan Pei Haiying
    2007, 33(4):40-46. DOI: 10.7519/j.issn.1000-0526.2007.04.007
    [Abstract](449) [HTML](57) [PDF 1.92 M](853)
    Based on rainfall observation and daily NCEP/NCAR reanalysis dataset from June t o July in 2005, a comparison of three dimension structures of subtropical high for two regional heavy rainfall events is carried out with characteristic index method and physical diagnosis analysis. The result shows that the subtropical hi gh structure for the two events have different properties, i.e. thermal or dynam ical. This has led to difference for these two events with respect to moisture t ransport condition and large scale background for vertical motion.
    8  Vapor Investigation of a Heavy Rainfall Event in the  Huaihe River Basin in 2005
    Chen Xiaohong Yu Jinlong Qiu Xuexing Zhang Jiao

    The stream function and potential function of water vapor transport vector dur ing a heavy rainfall in the Huaihe River valley in the summer of 2005 is studied and the averaged water vapor budget is computed and diagnosed during the event period. The results indicate that the main water vapor source of the event is the strong vapour transportation band coming from Philippinesand across South China Sea and arriving to the middleeast China. This strong vapor tran sportation was composed of two branches. The first one was from Pacific vapor tr ansport center and it moved westward along the south region of equator. The othe r one was coming from the easterly trade wind in the southern hemisphere which got across the equator at Africa's Somalia peninsula and then arrived to the nor th of Bangal Gulf, and finally reaching to Philippines. The area of severe vapor transport vector converge corresponds with the area of the heavy rainfall. The total water vapor budget corresponds with the average rainfall, the average rain fall increases with the increasing total water vapor converge. On the other hand , the water vapor vertical transport at low level corresponds well with the avera ge arearainfall.
    9  A Comparison Analysis of Two Processes for Drouth Turning  Heavy Rainfall in Sichuan and Chongqing, 2006
    Wang Li Qing Quan Xie Na Xu Linna
    2007, 33(4):53-57. DOI: 10.7519/j.issn.1000-0526.2007.04.009
    [Abstract](452) [HTML](52) [PDF 3.92 M](668)
    Based on the NCEP reanalysis data and T213 data, the two typical heavy rainfall which occured in Sichuan and Chongqing in summer,2006 was analyzed. Th e result shows that the variation of 500hpa circulation, and the intrusion of co ld advection at upper air and the cold air at low level are favorable to the occ urrence of the heavy rainfall. On the other hand, the strengthen of the low leve l jet, wind speed pulsation are key to the heavy rainfall. The intensity and loc ation of the heavy rainfall are related to the convergence of water vapour in 85 0hpa, divergence at high level and the strengthen of the ascending motion。
    10  Analysis of Potential Vorticity for the Rainstorm Processes in Henan Provi nce Caused by Typhoon Haitang
    Jing Chunyue Shou Shaowen He Zhe Li Ping Qiao Chungui Fan Xuefeng
    2007, 33(4):58-64. DOI: 10.7519/j.issn.1000-0526.2007.04.010

    Based on the analysis of the potential vorticity(PV) on isentropic su rface in the three phases of regional rainstorm in Henan Province caused by Typh oon Haitang, the mechanism for the generation of the rainstorm is disclosed. The results show that typhoon is a system with high PV value, the first rainstorm p hase is generated in the south to the southeasterly jet stream which lies in the northeastern part of typhoon. The second and the third phases are the rainstorm s far from the typhoon. They occur because of the interaction of typhoon and col d air with high PV when typhoon reaches the relatively high latitude. In additio n, the southward shift of upper level jet stream is advantageous to the southwar d transportation of high value PV and can promote the intensification of rainsto rm.
    11  Analysis of Wet Potential Vorticity of Two Similar Typhoons Affecting Hebei Pr ovince
    He Lihua Kong Fanchao Li Jiangbo Liang Ruyi Zhang Wei

    [Abstract](606) [HTML](48) [PDF 2.22 M](776)
    With conventional meteorological data as well as NCEP/NCAR reanalysis data, the processes of the typhoon 9711 and the typhoon Matsa (0509) are diagno sed and compared. The result indicates that the restrengthening of the typhoo n 9711 after its denaturing was due to intense development of a frontal cyclon e, which was incarnated by downwards moving of the upper level potiential votici ty, the tropical low pressure circulation and the lowlevel front. But in the p r ocess of the denaturing of the typhoon Matsa, there was no lowlevel front, and the atmospheric slanting piezotropy was weaker. So the mutual influence of downw ards moving of the upper level potiential voticity, the tropical lowpressure c irculation and the lowlevel front did not exist. MPV1<0 and MPV2>0 were characteristic storm rainfall area, which is a good denotation of this kind of rainstorm. Downwards moving of the upper level potiential votic ity is advantageous to releasing of the unstable energy, and causing the increas ing precipitation.

    [Abstract](785) [HTML](61) [PDF 983.63 K](1114)
    Using the NCEP grid 1°×1° data and convection observational data, The vertica l helicity was applied to analyze heavy rainstorm processe, which occurred in Ju ne, 2005 over Guangdong. The results of diagnostic analyses show that both the r apidly strengthening trend of the value in positive center of the vertical helic ity at lower level and the rapidly lessening trend of the negative one at upper level during the rainstorm can reflect the position and intensity of the heavy r ainstorm in Guangdong. When the value in negative center of hp at upper level ra pidly reduced and the positive one at lower level rapidly increased, and when th e region of both the positive helicity center turning strong and the negative on e turning poor overlapped near t he same longitudeor latitude, the rainfall over the corresponding region reached the maximum and the intensity of the rainstorm reached the strongest. During the heavy rainfall which is never suffered in a c entury in Longmen and the most heavy rainfall days in Guangdong, positive vertic al helicity center at the lowerlevel troposphere and negative one at the uppe r troposphere tends downwards to the lowlevel.

    Based on the daily 500 hPa geopotential height from realtime database of National Meteorogical Information Center, the Northern Hemisphere and key re gions blocking high monitoring and diagnostics technique which fits for operatio n was selected. Using the blocking high index, realtime blocking high monitori ng over each longitude at the midhigh latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere was achieved. Key regions in Okhotsk, Baika and Ural, which can affect on summer pre cipitations in China, were selected for blocking high monitoring. Meanwhile, dai ly and 5days running mean general circulation patterns of 500 hPa in the North ern Hemisphere were both monitored. Thus, the realtime operational system of m oni toring and diagnostics for the Northern Hemisphere blocking high was set up. Thr ough the analysis of blocking high monitoring products of 2006, the monitoring r esults accorded with the fact, including the blocking intense and location. These products were helpful for summer precipitation prediction of China.
