The project will produce three parts of data: the operational observations, the non-operational observations from the portable equipments, and data generated from the modeling study.
The operational observations:
The observational data from the meteorological
operational network including the AWSs, radiosonde observation stations, GPS/MET water vapor stations, weather radars, and satellites will be conveyed to the National Meteorological Information Centre (NMIC) in real time. NMIC will conduct quality control for and gridding analysis based on the AWS observations. 3D gridded radar reflectivity (at coordinates of longitude, latitude, and altitude) will be produced using the Radar Mosaic System developed by the State Key Laboratory of Severe Weather, Chinese Academy of Meteorological Sciences.
The non-operational observations:
This part of data will be collected by the
instrument people that participate in the field campaign,
and sorted out after the field experiment. The raw data and
the data after quality control should be submitted within
about one month after the end of the field experiment.
The numerical simulation data:
The people who participate in the modeling
study will submit two types of gridded data. One is produced
by the corresponding data assimilation systems. The other is
from the MEP experiments.
Information of the key contact persons in charge of the observational data and/or equipments are listed in Table 9.
