TIMREX is a joint US-Taiwan multi-agency field program to be conducted in the plain and western mountain slope regions of southern Taiwan, coinciding with Taiwan’s Southwesterly Monsoon Experiment – 2008 (SoWMEX-08). TiMREX focuses on the multiple scale physics of heavy rain and flood producing convective systems, and their accompanying quantitative precipitation forecast/estimate (QPF/QPE) problems, in a complex environment influenced by the Mei-Yu front, southwesterly summer Monsoon, land-sea contrasts, and significant orography. The project lead is Wen-Chau Lee from NCAR. The SPOL radar will be deployed from 15 May through 30 June 2008.
