    Because the rainstorm precipitation amounts in the 2003 and 2006 Meiyu seasons are concentrated in the Huaihe Valley and their total precipitation amounts are different, the article has conducted the thorough research in the frontal zone structure by using the average field method. The results can be drawn as follows. (1) There was a clear Meiyu front area while heavy rain occurred, and the rainstorm precipitation amount and the frontal zone intensity are proportional. (2) Rainstorm area was located at the frontal zone, i.e. in the north of the hot and humid areas in the middlelower troposphere, and also north of the lowaltitude jet stream. (3) The shear deformation field of frontogenesis function overlapped with the rainstorm location, and the positive frontogenesis function area was shaped as an erect column and overlapped with the densified area of south wind isotachs. (4) Zonal distribution of the frontogenesis function instructed the rainstorm coverage.

    By using all the available meteorological observation data, climatic characteristics of sustained fog between 1980 and 2006 in the Pearl River Estuary Region were analyzed. Meanwhile, the circulation characteristics and physical mechanism for sustained fog generation and dissipation were studied through analysing the typical cases. The major conclusions can be drawn as follows: (1) Sustained fog in the Pearl River Estuary Region usually appears from October to May next year, especially in spring; (2) The weather situation when sustained fog happens can be divided into 3 kinds: type A, on the e〖JP2〗ast of low pressure (or inverted trough); type B, in the rear(or bottom) of high pressure; and type C, in uniform pressure fields; (3) When severe sustained fog happens, the transportation of wetwarm advection, the weak lift motion and convergence of vapor flux at the surface layer and the drywarm cap in the midlower troposphere are the favorable conditions for condensation of vapor and maintenance of temperature inversion, the intrusion of drycold advection accompanied by northerly wind is the main factor for the fog dissipation.

    The characteristics of largescale circulation background and meteorological elements in fog events are studied, based on the continuous observations (wind, temperature, relative humidity and visibility) at automatic weather stations along the BeijingTianjinTanggu expressway from October to December in 2007 and the NCEP reanalysis data. It is found that the typical situation of local fog exists in the circulation of downdrafts in upper air and the weak pressure field on the ground; while the systematic fog exists in the region of thermal advection in the lower troposphere and weak pressure field in front of the cold front on the ground. The air temperatures are 9-13 ℃,4-7 ℃ and -6-1 ℃ in October, November and December respectively, during fog events. And humidity is mainly over 90% but partly between 85% and 90% for the visibility of 500-1000 m, with wind direction changefully and wind speed mainly less than 2 m?s-1. The huge differences of the formation and dissipation, duration and the sequence, occurring frequence for fogs at each section of the BeijingTianjinTanggu expressway are also obtained.

    Based on the NCEP reanalysis, FY-2 satellite TBB and rainfall data from automatic precipitation stations etc., the two cold front shear processes which occurred in Yunnan on July 2 and 5, 2008 were analyzed. The results show that the cold front shear, range and rainfall between two processes are distinctly different, and that the intensity and movement of cold front sheer affect the intensity of rainfall. Meanwhile, the generation and maintaining of mesoscale system originated in sheer line significantly influence the intensity of rainfall. The YunnanBurma high ridge, plays an important role in vapor transport and convergence. The rainfall intensity differences result in the differences of strength of convection development during two convection processes, and thermal instablility indexes such as pseudoequivalent potential temperature, K index, total energy, CAPE, etc. Could reflect the differences of development of convection. Different conditions lead to different changes of physical fields, which is the main reason for intensity changes of precipitation occurring in cold front sheer system.

    By using the weather chart, surface densified observation of precipitation, sounding data and NCEP/NCAR reanalysis data (resolution 1°×1°), the largescale persistent   severe precipitation in southern North China from 9 to 10 May 2009 is analyzed. Results demonstrate that the severe precipitation is produced when the cold air met with southwest warm wet air. There is southwest current ahead of the trough at 500 hPa. and the northeastsouthwest shear line at the 850 and 700 hPa. The surface cold front turns to stationary front. Then the weak cyclonic wave is formed and moved to southeast and finally disappears. The atmosphere has high temperature and humidity. There are weak convective instability and symmetric instability in middle levels. The invasion of cold air takes place in the lower levels. The cold air meets with warm wet air to form the convergence and updraft on the one hand, and on the other hand, the cold air makes the warm wet air ascended. As a result, the ascending movement has been strengthened and the precipitation is increase. The middlehigh level atmosphere is warm and wet. The level of 0 ℃ is relatively high. The weather mainly is severe precipitation accompanied with thunder and lightning. Owing to the severe warm and wet currents, the cold air weakens during moving to southward and the velocity slows down. The cold air and warm air confront each other for a long time in the lower reaches of the Huanghe River, therefore, the severe precipitation is maintained persistently.

    Based on the conventional data, automatic weather station data, Doppler radar observational data, and FY2C TBB data, together with the conceptual model of the mesoscale convective complex motion,the strongest thunderstorm and rainstorm event in North China area on 18 July 2007 has been analyzed. The results show that the local rainstorm is presented the obvious character of a mesoscale convective system which is produced under the largescale advantageous condition. The strong rainfall occurred at the head of the Lamdbashaped echo, and the falling area of rainstorm is associated with the meso cyclone. The analyses of automatic weather station data illustrate that the rainfall region and moving direction can be found. In addition, the rainstorm occurred at the rightbackside of the MCC and the precipitation intensity is the strongest when the cloud top temperature is the lowest. According to the motion of the mesoβ scale element (MBE), it can forecast the next region of the rainstorm which provides a new way for the nowcasting of the local rainstorm.

    A typical squall line taking place in Beijing area is analyzed with the Sband Doppler weather radar data and intensive surface AWS observations in Beijing. The results indicate that: (1) meteorological elements show abrupt changes during the influence of the squall line, such as mutation in the wind direction, surge in wind speed, drop of temperature and steep rising of pressure; (2) there is a good relationship among surface vorticity, precipitation and thunderstorm winds. The position of precipitation and the variation of the distance between precipitation and positive vorticity can be used to indicate the future trend of convective cells; (3) surface water vapor flux shows some small scale characteristics, such as suface outflow of thunderstorm, terrain convergence and lowlevel water vapor transport.The combination of positive water vapor flux from thunderstorm’s outflow and terrain convergence has strengthened the convergence and lift in the front of the mountain, this is the main reason for the quickly development of thunderstorm in the front of mountain and subsequently local heavy rain and thunderstorm winds. The surface water vapor flux can be used as an indicator of the future trend for the thunderstorms.

    Based on the 711digital weather radar data of 71 linear MCS cases in Weibei area of Shaanxi Province between May and September from 2000 to 2006, these linear MCS systems were classified into four categories (trailing stratiform (TS), leading stratiform (LS), parallel stratiform (PS) and broken linear MCS). The characteristics of each MCS class were statistically analyzed. The results show that linear MCS has the greater frequency of changes, and the broken linear MCS occurs in the most cases; the mean scale of TS MCS is the greatest and that of PS MCS is the least; the dominant moving direction of linear MCS is southeast; the moving speed of linear MCS in different direction has large differences and the mean moving speed of TS MCS which moves southeastward is the fastest. On the other hand, the TS MCS has the most hail probability (62%), and tends to have more severe weather reports, areal hail, heavy disasters than other kinds of MCS.

    This paper analyzes the characteristics of cloud-to-ground (CG) lightning in rainstorm and hail event that caused by a cold vortex, by using data collected in lightning detection network, Doppler radar and intensive automatic weather stations. The results show that there are dense areas of CG lightning in the process of rainstorm and hail, and the proportion of positive CG lightning in hail is higher than in rainstorm; the negative CG lightning predominates in rainstorm, which is mostly located at the core area of rainstorm and mainly in the radar echo area of above 45 dBz, and its lasting time is equivalent to the duration of rainstorm. The negative CG lightning frequency and its growth rate reach the peak 30-70 min ahead of the area of strong radar echo, and it has a certain prediction significance for shortterm rainstorm forecasting and early warning. In the hail process, negative CG lightning is concentrated in front of hail cloud, and the positive CG lightning is located at the core area of hail cloud, which is consistent with hail area, and the regions of positive and negative CG lightning begin to separate. The total number of CG lightning and the area of strong radar echo have a similar changing trend. Positive CG lightning occurs about 30 min ahead of hail. The total CG lightning and positive CG lightning frequencies are increasing considerably before hail. Hail occurs during the period that the total CG lightning, positive CG lightning and the area of strong radar echo reach the peak and decrease rapidly. The total CG lightning number decreases, but the positive CG lightning increases in the dissipating and weakening phase of hail cloud.

    Based on the observed thunderstorm data of Zhengzhou, the climatic characteristics of lightning are analyzed. And based on the sounding data from 2004 to 2006, the environment parameters such as Sweat index, the best lifting index, the 850 hPa pseudoequivalent potential temperature and so on are calculated. The correlations between the single environment parameter and lightning weather in Zhengzhou, as well as correlations between compound parameters and lightning weather have been studied respectively. The result shows that: (1) the single environment parameter has good relationship to the lightning activity when taking value in some extent, but can not reflect the lightning characteristics totally. (2) Multiparameters can reflect the characteristics of lightning activity to some extent. The equation of lightning probability potential forecast is constructed by using multidimensional linear regression, and the significance test of α=0.05 is passed. Using the lightning observed data, the operational results from June to August in 2008 are assessed,and the TS score of the probability forecast reaches 63.6%. The method provides the objective and quantitative reference to the forecast of lightning in Zhengzhou.

    Based on the surface topographic altitude data, FY-2C infrared channel data and cloud cover data from observation stations during 30 April-01 May 2007 from 2000 to 0300 (UTC), an analysis of the relation between the topographic altitude and the clear IR radiance is performed. It is found that the IR brightness temperature of surface is influenced by the change of surface topographic altitudes at nighttime in clear areas. The IR brightness temperature in some clear areas at high altitude is lower than (or equal to) that in other cloudy areas at low altitude. This results in difficulty to process cloud detection using infrared channel data. Therefore, the standard database of clear surface IR brightness temperature at different topographic altitudes is established and used to separate satellite infrared observations into “clear” and “cloudy” categories as a method at nighttime. A case selected randomly shows that 88 percent of satellite observations can be correctly separated for an infrared imagery at nighttime. There are 4 percent of “clear” observations to be incorrectly separated into “cloudy” ones. In addition, 8 percent of “cloudy” observations are incorrectly separated into “clear” category. By the method 92 percent of satellite observations in clear areas can be correctly categorized, but 82 percent in cloudy areas. In order to analyze the operational use of the method the satellite infrared observations at 0000 UTC during 2-5 May 2007 are separated into “clear” and “cloudy” categories based on the standard database from the datasets at 0000 UTC 1 May 2007. The 92 percent of total satellite observations can be correctly separated, and the accuracy is close to, but better than that of cloud detection at 0000 UTC 1 May. The 93 percent of satellite observations in clear areas can be correctly categorized, which results in the better total accuracy, also 92 percent in cloudy areas. 

    This paper describes the principles and methods of monitoring the ionospheric scintillation based on the FY-2 Satellite operational telemetry signals and how the monitor works. The monitor watches realtime satellite signals for scintillation in both amplitude and phase. The telemetry signal from the satellite is one of phase modulation at 1.7 GHz, which is stable in the emission amplitudes and accessible and accurate in the signals loaded. It can be used in the research on ionospheric scintillation in and around China. As the FY-2  Satellite is geostationary and monitors without changes inherent with the motion of the satellite, it is easy to separate the temporal changes from the spatial ones, making it more advantageous than the monitoring with GPS. Designed on the basis of the receivers for broadened cloud imagery that are widely installed across China and with the use of their antenna and channels and high and first intermediate frequencies, the monitoring instrument in question will be readily accepted nationwide and joined in network monitoring. In addition, it will be much more useful due to the availability of signal sources emitting the same frequency in two different directions from the existing networked twin satellites. When combined with the GPSbased dualfrequency scintillation monitors, this monitoring device will also be able to have access to the spectral characteristics of the ionospheric scintillation.

    The data of Doppler weather radar are often contaminated by ground clutter. It has a significant effect on the accuracy of the base data estimates (reflectivity, velocity and spectrum width), then it will also affect all ensuing products. Therefore, filtering techniques that attempt to suppress these ground clutter signals are essential for high data quality in all Doppler weather radar systems. Firstly, this dissertation outlines the research background and significance of adaptive Gaussian frequency filter. Secondly, analyzes the characteristics of the ground clutter and weather signals in the Doppler weather radars. Thirdly, describes the theory of the fifthorder elliptic infinite impulse response (IIR) ground clutter filter and the algorithm of adaptive Gaussian frequency filter. In the end, using the data of actual radar echo signals, analyzes the ground clutter suppression performance of the fifthorder elliptic infinite impulse response (IIR) ground clutter filter and adaptive Gaussian frequency filter. Then, analyzes and compares the ground clutter suppression performance of these two methods, gets following results: the ground clutter suppression performance of the adaptive Gaussian frequency filter without clutter filter bypass charts is better than that of the fifthorder elliptic IIR filter with clutter filter bypass charts, and adaptive Gaussian frequency filter satisfies the request of realtime processing.

    Based on the data obtained from weather forecaster’s needs and application tracking survey with questionnaire and face to face depthinterview since 2006 to 2008, the benefits of advanced forecast techniques and improved new products, such as B08FDP products provided during Beijing 2008 Olympics period, were assessed. The three main obstacles preventing weather forecasters from truly using B08FDP products, were drawn from weather forecaster’s needs survey and fed back to weather service authority timely in 2006. Weather forecaster’s needs and application of new advanced forecast techniques were contrastively analyzed, results showed that forecasters had a more noticeably enhanced confidence in and increased satisfaction to the new advanced forecast techniques and improved products during 2008 Olympics than that in 2007. It was found that the improved socioeconomic benefits of the improvement of forecast techniques were affected by the forecaster’s skillful and optimal application of advanced forecast techniques. Therefore, it was crucially important to strengthen the training of forecasters, allowing them to be the master of new forecast techniques, and to build up their confidence in and capability of using the techniques in a conscious manner. At last, some suggestions and recommendations were given for improving the using of advanced weather forecast techniques by weather forecasters.
