The intensity and frequency of extreme weather events (e.g., heat wave, draught and heavy rainfall)were found to significantly increase over the past three decades associated with global warming. Locatedin the subtropical region influenced jointly by tropical and extra-tropical weather systems, Taiwan isparticularly vulnerable to natural disasters. Understanding how global warming impacts extreme weatherevents is not only a scientific study but also an issue of high social concern and national security. In thisthree-year project, we aim to successively develop a moist dynamic framework for tropical climate studiesbased on the early moist dynamic theory of Yu and Neelin (1997) and the new “moist stability theory” ofRaymond et al. (2009). Validation of model will be conducted by comparing with observations fromsatellite and traditional meteorological network.
