LONG TERM GOALS To study weather disturbances over the East Asian - Western Pacific monsoon region and vicinity using Navy and NCEP data and forecast models. The primary goal is to advance the understanding of the weather-producing systems in the region, in order to improve forecast capabilities. OBJECTIVES The objectives are 1 to study the structure and the dynamic and thermodynamic properties of the weather systems in the vicinity of the Southeast and East Asian monsoon region that stretches from Indian Ocean to the tropical Pacific, including the South China Sea and Yellow Sea, which are of particular interest to naval operations and 2 to study the ability and sensitivity of Navy operational numerical models in analyzing and predicting these disturbances.
