Recently, the project of typhoon extreme precipitation prediction technology and reliability research undertaken by Shanghai Typhoon Institute of China Meteorological Administration (CMA) has been approved.

The project leader, researcher Yu Hui, introduced that his project has accomplished database of typhoon extreme precipitation events and application platform construction in China, realized 5 functions of typhoon precipitation, extreme precipitation,extreme precipitation threshold, extreme precipitation typhoon and extreme precipitation typhoon events, and improved typhoon yearbook database in China.

This team has studied extreme precipitation typhoon integrated indicator in China, pinpointed 57 extreme typhoons affecting China, and analyzed their monthly distribution features and track features.

Project results have effectively elevated typhoon extreme precipitation prediction and assessment level in China. At present, these key technologies have been applied in Shanghai meteorological observatory, Zhejiang provincial meteorological observatory,and so on. They have also been adopted by World Meteorological Organization (WMO) demonstration projects, and ramped up typhoon precipitation operational prediction level and global influence. (Dec. 29)
