Atmospheric Science Observation Instruments and Database Core Facilities Plan of the Department of Natural Resources - Master Plan and Sub-plans - Atmospheric Science Observation Instruments Core Facility Plan (1/3)

Project Details


The study of atmospheric science is a study of very complex variability in time and space scales. In many situations, we need a very large or long-term in situ observation data, especially in Taiwan. Observation. Therefore, there is an urgent need for localized observation data to verify model results and improve development, as well as atmospheric environment management. However, this type of observation is very rare in Taiwan, and some observation instruments are not only expensive to build, but also require stable and long-term maintenance costs. Therefore, in the early days of the National Science Council, through the Ministry of Science and Technology, and now the National Science and Technology Commission, as well as some research institutions, a lot of money has been invested in observation instruments. Therefore, the resources of observation instruments have been scattered among various universities or research institutions. back. Common instruments have a set budget or planned purchase, but the maintenance of various instruments, component replacement and even upgrades are all carried out by the planners' different and unstable funding sources, which leads to the failure rate of the instruments. It is not easy to maintain, and the control may even tend to be conservative or the observation strategies such as reducing the frequency of observations will have a considerable impact on the efficiency of instrument observation. In addition, the observation data over the years are very valuable. Through the establishment and improvement of the atmospheric science research and application database, a variety of observation data has the functions of warehousing and querying, which can greatly improve the quality of scientific research support work. . Therefore, in order to effectively integrate the common hardware and software of the research core within the Department of Atmospheric Science, this project includes "Observation Instrument Operation and Maintenance" (Sub-Project 1) and "Atmospheric Scientific Research and Application Database" (Sub-Project 2) This integrated plan hopes to have stable long-term funding from central ministries and commissions to maintain and operate the core observation facilities and databases of the Atmospheric Science Department, so that the observation instruments can have good maintenance and operation resources, and the observation data obtained will be better. Having a good storage and search database will help in planning various scientific research projects in the future, so that project managers can devote themselves to the presentation of scientific goals and research results.
