The THORPEX Pacific Asian Regional Campaign (T-PARC) is a multi-national field campaign that addresses the shorter-range dynamics and forecast skill of one region (Eastern Asian and the western North Pacific) and its downstream impact on the medium-range dynamics and forecast skill of another region (in particular, the eastern North Pacific and North America). The field phase of T-PARC is designed to leverage multi-national efforts to address these two overarching foci. While T-PARC encompasses varying time and space scales, the primary objectives of each region are the same (i.e., to increase understanding of the mechanisms that will lead to improved predictive skill of high impact weather events). This multi-scale approach of T-PARC is desirable as high impact weather events over these two regions have strong dynamical links.
The T-PARC Field Campaign started on 1 August 2008 and will last until 30 September 2008. To obtain the latest updates and check on the status of the campaign, please visit the T-PARC Field Catalog. The Field Catalog provides status updates, daily operations plans and other useful information related to activities in Monterey, Guam and Hawaii.
