    Abstract:
    Supported by the Beijing Municipal Science and Technology Commission key project “Research on the hail suppression, rain mitigation operation during Olympic p eriod”, the technology of the rain mitigation operation during Beijing 2008 Oly mpic opening and closing ceremony was studied since 2002. The rain mitigation te chnological scheme, the rainmitigation working flow was made on the basis of t he study. 18 rain mitigation operation areas were designed according to the weat her characteristics and cloud moving direction during August and September in Be ijing Area, and the preliminary experiment results were also analyzed. Weather characteristics, seeding operation and the evaluation of the operation effect on 8t h August were mainly analyzed in the paper. It shows that the intensity of radar echo is weakened, the height of the radar echo is lowered and the area of inten se radar echo is decreased dramatically after the rain mitigation operation. Esp ecially after the seeding operation between 21:45-22:00, there was a gap obvious ly appeared in the radar echo. In addition, according to the change in the grade of the radar echo intensity we can see that the area of the strong echo was dim inished gradually, while the area of the weak echo was increased. The cloud top height and the cloud effective particle radius over the seeding place retrieved by the satellite also revealed the effect of the seeding operation.

    Abstract:
    By using MM5, the transition of Tom (a tropical storm in 1996 in North western Pacific Ocean) from the tropical storm to the extratropical cyclone is s imulated. The result shows that: (1) when Tom entered midhigh latitude of baro c linic zone, it interacted with the 500hPa westerly trough. The coupling of the w arm and moist air of low level at the east of the storm and the positive vortici ty advection before the trough made it possible for the cyclone to develop. The cold advection after the trough and warm advection before the trough made Tom wi th cold feature in the west and warm feature in the east. And this thermodynamic structure transformed Tom into a baroclinic cyclone. (2) The cyclonic shear left to the upperlevel jet stream e ntrance and the anticyclonic shear right to the upperlevel jet stream exit w ere favorable for the upward movement right to Tom and downward movement left to Tom, which made Tom transform from a barotropical structure to a baroclinic one . (3) The invasion of the cold and dry air in 700hPa level into Tom's warm core made the storm axis tilt NWSE from lower to upper level and destructed Tom's  w arm core. (4) Because of the invasion of the cold and dry air in 700hPa level, t wo warm cores appeared. At the north of the northern warm core a significant war m front was born and a cold front seemed to appear near the northwest warm core. (5) The subtropical cyclone's reintensification was related to the downward t ransmission of high potential vortex from stratosphere.

    [Abstract](901) [HTML](96) [PDF 1.73 M](1007)
    Abstract:
    In order to study the disaster of the heavy drought occurring in SichuanChongq ing Region in midsummer 2006, the atmospheric circulation anomaly over East Asia is analyzed to investigate the causes of the drought. The results sho w that there is a abnormal water vapor transport from northeast to southwest and a negative abnormal belt of the meridional water vapor transport from Sichuan C hongqing Region to IndoChina, which lead to a center of the abnormal divergen ce of the water vapor over SichuanChongqing Region. This kind of situation of the abnormal water vapor field is advantageous to the development of the drought. At the same time, the subtropical high over the western Pacific that is stronger and extends westward and northward far more contrasting to the case of climate mean, together with the extending eastward Iranian high and the abnormal Tibetan high constitute a belt of high pressure. This abnormal situation of high pressu re accelerates the development of the drought to a large degree. 

    Abstract:
    The contribution of diabatic heating to vertical velocity in ω equation for two Meiyu heavyrainfall events occurring 9-10 June 2008 is calculated by us ing the NECP reanalysis data. The feedback mechanism of latent heat release to the Meiyu heavyrainfall systems is interpreted. It is found that the late nt heat release may enhance the ascending motion above the rainfall area and promo te the development of mesoscale systems. The analysis also shows that there are two different kinds of precipitation in the Meiyu front: one is the largescal e continuous precipitation associated with shear line and low vortex; another is the mesoscale heavy rainfall caused by convective heating. Besides that, the dy namic lifting and friction forcing of mountain to the rainfall amplification can not be ignored. 

    Abstract:
    Typhoon rainstorm can induce geological hazards such as landslides and debris flows and cause serious casualties consequently. Highresolution data a re essential for highresolution geological hazard prediction. Yueqing in Zhejia ng Province is selected as the studied area, which is frequently attacked by typh oons and is seriously influenced by geological hazards. Geological hazards induc ed by typhoon No.0414, No.0505 and No.0509 are taken as samples. Applicabilit y of radar rainfall estimation is assessed for the studied area. Relations betwe en typhoon rainstorms and geological hazard occurrences are carefully studied by use of radarraingauge rainfall estimation. The results show that the radar ra infall estimation can reflect the characteristics of triggering rainfall of geolo gical hazards in great details. Typhoon induced geological hazards need shorter rainfall duration, smaller effective rainfall, but higher critical rainfall inte nsity.

    [Abstract](704) [HTML](86) [PDF 3.31 M](870)
    Abstract:
    On the basis of the CLM3 (Community Land Model 3) simulated soil and c anopy evaporation, the climatology and spatialtemporal variations of the land w ater resource in China are investigated. The distribution of annual mean water r esource is similar to that of annual mean precipitation in China, with a patt ern of the largest in the south of Yangtze River and the smallest in Xinjiang, d ecreasing gradually from southeast to northwest. The total evaporation shows a c lose relationship with the precipitation, with the high evaporation region locat ed in south of 35°N and the low evaporation area in north of 35°N, especially in the northwest, where mean annual evaporation may be below 50 mm. From the distr ibution of evaporation index, we can see a different pattern, in which the high regions are located in northern China and the low regions are in southern China. Analyses of the linear trend show that the land water resource has decreased in most regions of China including northern China north of 35°N except northern T ibetan Plateau, western Xinjiang Autonomy Region and Hetao areas, while increased in the Tibetan Plateau and southern China during the past twenty years. The dec reased (increased) atmospheric precipitable water is generally consistent with t he downward (upward) trend of the land water resource and the variation of the p recipitable water is considered as an important cause of water resource change.

    [Abstract](837) [HTML](126) [PDF 2.17 M](1001)
    Abstract:
    Based on NCEP/NCAR daily reanalysis data in July 2004, the moisture a nd wind fields of heavy rain events in Guangxi are analyzed. Results show that t he evaluation of heavy rain has a good correspondence to the variety of moisture and watervapor content increased before the heavy rain happened. The occurren ce and break of heavy rain is closely associated with the strengthening and brea k of summer monsoon. There is a remarkable difference of the vapor inflow and ou tflow between heavy rain period and nonheavy rain period. South China Sea is t he main water vapor source, while the Bengal and the West Pacific Ocean also pla y the important roles in heavy rain period besides South China Sea. And the wate r vapor income of heavy rain period is much more than that of nonheavy rain pe riod.

    Abstract:
    By using the data observed by Doppler weather radar, duallinear polarization a nd entirephaseparameter weather radar (on 3 cm waveband), lightning locati on net and precipitation observation stations, the effect of 4 seeding experimen ts in eastern Hubei in 2007 are analyzed. The results show that there are incre asing changes of the Doppler echo characteristics of the target cloud in short time after seeding, including the intensity and area of strong ec hoes, echo tops, the value and the area of larger VIL, these factors reach the m aximum in 25 min. Compared with the contrast cloud, the enlargement rate of seed ed cloud is large. The FY2C data cannot reflect the seeding effect on convective cloud, but on stratus cloud, the cloudtop height rises while the cloud top te mperature reduces, supercooled cloud thickness increases, the effective partic le radius maintains the big granule level and the cloud top brightness temperatu re drops. The dualpolarization factors including Ldr and ρhv (area of l arge value), the frequency (maximum appearing at 18th minute) and intensity of l ightning all vary. Main rainfall period is centralized in half an hour from the 10th minute, and the rainfall intensity and duration of seeded cloud are more th an those of contrast cloud.

    Abstract:
    Based on the observational data in August 2006 obtained by buoys, automatic weat her stations and radio sounding in Qingdao Region, a typical landsea breeze ca se is studied in detail, and verified by WRF modeling results. The results indic ate that both sea breeze circulation and land breeze circulation in the vertical direction are closed, and the thickness of seabreeze circulation is much thic ker than land breeze circulation. Seabreeze appears and disappears firstly in the lower level, which is strongest in the afternoon. The wind force decreases w ith height. When the landsea temperature difference between Qingdao Station an d buoy station reaches to 4℃,sea breeze occurs,which can extend to inland about more than 40km. The WRF model successfully captures the sea breeze circulation, and reveals the interaction b etween sea breezes on both sides of the peninsula, which results in the converge nce and ascending in the middle part of the peninsula.

    Abstract:
    Based on the daily observation data of rain rime and fog rime in Jinhu a during 1953-2008, characters of wire icing, such as the variatio n in the age, year, season, month, and the beginning and ending time, the durati on, the largest diameter were analyzed. At the same time, the analyses of the fo rmation conditions and characters of the disaster of wire icing in Jinhua were carried out. Th e results showed that the average day of wire icing in Jinhua was 0.8 d each year , which concentrated in winter. The maximum appeared in January, followed by Febr uary, and the minimum appeared in December. Wire icing can occur at any time in one day. The first date of the appearance of wire icing was on December 10, and the latest date was on February 19. The longest duration was 64 h, and the largest diameter was 16 mm. The formation conditions of rain rime and fog rime were different. The disaster of rain rime was worse than the fog rime when thelargest diameter of them was the same. And the ice disaster in electric power was more serious in high mountains than in hills or basins. Finally, specific measures a bout the defense of the disaster were put forward based on the analysis of chara cteristics of wire icing.
